“Happy selfie — sad selfie, good days — bad days, with make up — no make up, boobs — no boobs,” she continued. “I can only hope that by sharing this not so glamorous journey, the millions of doubted & neglected Lyme sufferers will gain medical recognition of their illness and the appropriate treatment affordable for all.”

She concluded the update, defending the post as honest: “This is not a pity party, just reality with good intend #InvisableDisease #NotAVictemButAWarrior.”

But it’s not all bad news for Yolanda this year. Despite her recent split from husband of four years David Foster, the 51-year-old recently purchased a new penthouse apartment, costing a whopping $4.5 million.
