Actress Bianca Wallace has revealed she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of multiple sclerosis three years ago.

She has recently started ‘Harrow’ star Ioan Gruffudd, 48, who shared Wallace’s Instagram post two days ago when she went public about her condition.

Wallace, 29, said: "'I haven't always had the same outlook on life. I haven't always been about following your heart and living your life to the best of your ability. That's actually come with a diagnosis of aggressive multiple sclerosis. In October 2018 I was diagnosed with MS, I was diagnosed with an aggressive form. It was very aggressive in nature, it came on hard and fast. I was at work in accounting and I tried to pick up a pen and I couldn't."

Her life when she was in a hospital emergency room where doctor’s broke the news that she may never be able to walk again.

"'I was sent to the emergency room and from there everything changed. Within the next few weeks I couldn't walk anymore, the entire right side of my body was completed whacked out,” Wallace shared.

“I had to start a journey I wasn't ready for. You're never ready for a diagnosis like this. I've always been a bubbly positive person but when you are faced with aggressive MS something changes."

"Will I ever walk again? I had my new. The neurologist answered that with 'I don't know'. At 25 I didn't know if I was going to walk again. I realised I had to make some changes in my life. I realised that starts with me. I was miserable, unhappy, I didn't know if I would walk again"

When Wallace understood he condition could deteriorate it “knocked the fear” out of her.

She said: " I don't know how it will progress I don't know what's going to happen. That knocked all the fear off me. It taught me to appreciate life for what it is. I hope this has cleared up some questions you may have of me. So now you know!'"
