"Throw in good old fashioned hard work and you’ll find some solution that works."

In the post, Carrie also stressed the importance of listening to one's body to understand when it needs to rest.

"Many people are numb to their body’s whispers... our society tells us to keep going through the pain, suffering and stress. I know, because as a dancer/athlete, you must dance through pain, and you must push yourself beyond normal human limits," she wrote.

Carrie joined The Talk in 2019

"I've done that: and I’m done with that. I no longer ignore my pain. I listen and honor it and try to receive the message with humility. And that is the gift of autoimmune. If you want to take this little test, I’ll post in my stories."

The Austin Powers actress ended the post by urging her followers to take care of themselves.
