Nourhanne Eissa Shares Inspiring Message Following Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis

Social media is one big fat lie that puts us all under unnecessary social, emotional and physical pressures. We are illuded into believing that everyone is happy, healthy, and spends weekends tanning on Gouna yachts. Yet, every now and then an Internet star shares the brutal reality of life away from the phone’s camera.

Nourhanne Eissa, one of Egypt’s biggest Instagram fashion girls, socialite, and Founder of Double Trouble Entertainment, just shared with us a piece of her reality with nothing but a big smile on her face. Our favorite girl shocked her 588k followers after announcing that she has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, an autoimmune disease that attacks the nervous system. According to Eissa, the diagnosis was not something she saw coming, yet she wanted to share something personal for the first time to help anyone going through the same ordeal.

Excuse my long caption, I never share my personal life on my social media platform. But this time, I just feel like I want to, maybe it can help any of you. So last Friday my life has turned upside down. After my bestfriend’s wedding (which was my last post on Insta), I went home feeling something wrong with my eyes, a white cloud on my left eye that appeared out of nowhere. but I said my eyes might be tired cause I don’t sleep well, so I just ignored it. To wake up on Saturday with this white cloud taking over my left eye. I couldn’t see anything with it, but unfortunately I had a photoshoot and I couldn’t cancel with the client last minute, so I acted as if nothing is going on, went to my shoot, did my job, without making anyone around me feel the suffer I’m going through. To wake up on Sunday with a much worse white cloud on my left eye. Went to the doctor and the first thing he told me after doing a couple of tests, “you need to see a neurologist”. Long story short, I was asked to do a couple of tests; MRI on the brain, visual field and VEP. I spent 3 days doing nothing but going from one doctor to another, trying to figure out what’s wrong with my eyes. I’ve seen my mother freaking out, felt the panic in the eyes of everyone around me. And instead of finding someone to calm my fears down, I took the role to calm my family and assure them that I’m okay. But deep inside my head I was thinking of nothing but “Am I gonna lose my sight? Will I go blind?”. And finally, I’m diagnosed with MS. A disease that I’ve never heard about before, but it comes out of stress and taking everything on your nerves. Elhamdulilah I’ll be taking cortisone IV drips for 3 days, 5 hours everyday (excuse me if I gain a little bit of weight 🙈). All I wanted to say is, Social media is such a big lie, people are not as happy as they look in pictures. We all have our issues and problems, that we have to deal with, every single day of our lives, and nobody knows about. I was about to lose my eyes because of the stress, so trust me, this whole life is nothing, so live it, love it and enjoy your ride to the max, we’re not staying here for long ❤️ Sending you all love & light, Nourhanne

“After my best friend’s wedding (which was my last post on Insta), I went home feeling something wrong with my eyes, a white cloud on my left eye that appeared out of nowhere.

The next day, the white cloud was much worse and she had to visit a neurologist while keeping a brave face in front of her family. “And instead of finding someone to calm my fears down, I took the role to calm my family and assure them that I’m okay. But deep inside my head, I was thinking of nothing but “Am I gonna lose my sight? Will, I go blind?”. And finally, I’m diagnosed with MS. A disease that I’ve never heard about before, but it comes out of stress and taking everything on your nerves,” she further explained.

 

The fashionista explained that for now she will be taking cortisone, and shared a positive message and reminder to just live life to the fullest, “All I wanted to say is, Social media is such a big lie, people are not as happy as they look in pictures. We all have our issues and problems, that we have to deal with, every single day of our lives, and nobody knows about. I was about to lose my eyesight because of the stress, so trust me, this whole life is nothing, so live it, love it and enjoy your ride to the max, we’re not staying here for long”.

This message means a lot coming from a girl who seems to have it all on social media. The glitz, glam, and fame are nothing but a show for the Internet.

 

WE SAID THIS: Get well soon and stay strong and positive, Nourhanne.
