Courtney Love has revealed she almost died from anaemia which she was diagnosed with last August.

The singer told fans on Instagram: “People, I’ve been sad, and extremely sick. Debilitated, in indescribable pain and in August at 97 pounds almost died in hospital from anaemia.

“I was stigmatised for being an addict for 9 months by many ill-equipped drs, backwards drs and quacks. While in debilitating acute pain. Then I met the most empathic wise pain management dr. I’m so grateful!”

Love went on to share how her health has improved after using CBD oil.

She wrote: “But I’m so good now . And on CBD oil . Which has removed ALMOST ALL the physical symptoms . And all the pain .

I used to scoff at cannabis / THC . And I also am no fan of the narcotic effect , hate weed feeling.

This isn’t that . It’s wo man and nature supporting us . It’s magic . But gods own CBD is a miracle.”

Courtney then expressed her thanks to a Hollywood friend who inspired the singer through a difficult time.

“Thank you @woodyharrelson for back in the day showing me that chipping from popular mechanics in 59? “the 67 uses of hemp,You were right !”

Giving an update on her health Love said: “Bear with me as I start to try and have a blast and help others every pain free day !!! I’ve been basically bedridden . I thought I was broken for sure this time . But I’m ok ! So I’m just waking and I’m frail. I’ll be strong again soon ! Not as always because this is the period to be mellow and not waste energy on anger, etc .”

She signed off with “Dropping the rock as we say . A new sort of strong with wisdom and more empathy than I had for people with physical illness . “

Courtney Love considers Gwyneth Paltrow as her best mate.
