Christina Applegate has been extremely candid about her multiple sclerosis journey.

Applegate recently opened up about going through a relapse in her healing process and the toll it's taken on her self-care. "My legs have never been this bad, so I don't know what's going on, no energy, legs are just done, like, can't get circulation, I can't get them to stop hurting," she said. "I need to buy stock in Cottonelle because I haven't taken a shower in three weeks. I can't stand in my shower."

"I have such a small bench and my a-- is so huge these days that I can’t sit on it, it’s like I slip right off of it. … So, I’ve been Cottonelle-ing my body," the blonde beauty noted.

Christina Applegate opened up about a recent relapse in her healing journey.

Luckily, through it all, Applegate has the Sopranos star, 43, to lean on. "It's so hard to live in a disabled body. It is so hard. I will not take that away from you and I am right there with you," Sigler told her pal during a recent episode. "But what makes it harder is when you compare it to how it used to be ... Once we get you to this place where we're accepting that this is how it's going to be, maybe forever ...[coping with MS] is not a reason enough for you to stop living because I sit here across from you and you still make me laugh like nobody else can. You still make me smile. You make me feel loved."
