Oh Lawd! Our favorite housewife has been in the hospital yall! Clearly Mrs. Leaks is the Atlanta housewives most successful star with popularity on screen and outside jobs in the entertainment industry. However it seems all her hard work is now taking a toll on her body.
According to NewsOne, NeNe was hospitalized and treated for blood clots recently. Apparently, her extensive travel schedule for work is the culprit of her ailment. This what she told fans on her official website.
Late last week I wasn’t feeling well and was feeling a little short of breath, the statement reads. I know my body and I know when I should be concerned so I went to the hospital to get checked out. After some routine tests I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lung. I’m told this happened to me because of the constant traveling around the country that I do for my job.
Thankfully she is recovering. Honestly, RHOA wouldn’t be the same if our star player went MIA! Then what would we have to watch on Sunday nights LOL? All kidding aside, we’re glad you’re doing better NeNe and we look forward to your next big thing, BOOP!
NeNe may be recovering from her recent health scare but her incident made me want to address something with my readers as well. On her official website, NeNe also said that she’s “thankful to be alive as the doctor advised me that most people don’t recognize the symptoms of blood clots and don’t go to the doctor and that’s when the big problems start happening”. Very true, most people do ignore their symptoms and avoid doctors at all cost. In the Black community, its almost taboo to get regular check ups from the doctor. Many believe they can just pray the ailment away, but faith without works is dead! You need some action in the mix! Action that requires you to make doctor appointments and seek professional help. AMEN CHURCH!
So, follow in NeNe’s steps and get yourself checked out early if you suspect something going on with your body. Nobody knows your body better than you, so if you’re not sure, GO GET CHECKED. There’s no harm in knowing what’s happening with your health.
