She said: "Also I wanted you guys to know that the reason why I share my health so openly is because I think there are so many stigmas around health and judgement about people who have the conditions I have.

"I want you to know that I will be okay. I won't stop. I'm a Capricorn. I will do everything I can to do the things I want.

"I just wanted to tell you all to take good care of yourselves, especially those dealing with autoimmune conditions."
