Alice re-posted a photo shared by Bianca on Twitter on Wednesday and wrote, “Yeah. It caused me a lot of stress. I’m very happy for them. It’s like one long vacation. It’s not that they don’t deserve it – I’ve heard that only B is on vacation, so why should she change.

WHAT IS MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS?
Multiple sclerosis (known as MS) is a condition in which the immune system attacks the body and causes nerve damage to the brain and spinal cord.
It is an incurable, lifelong condition. Symptoms may be mild in some and more extreme in others, causing severe disability.
MS affects 2.3 million people worldwide – including approximately 400,000 in the United States and 100,000 in the United Kingdom.
It is more than twice as common in women as in men. The person is usually diagnosed in their 20s and 30s.
This condition is more often diagnosed in people of European descent.
The cause is not clear. Genes may be associated with this, but it is not directly inherited. Smoking and low vitamin D levels are also associated with MS.
Symptoms include fatigue, difficulty walking, vision problems, bladder problems, numbness or tingling, muscle stiffness and cramps, balance and coordination problems, and problems with thinking, learning, and planning.
Most patients will have episodes of symptoms that subside and return, while some have those that gradually worsen over time.
Symptoms can be managed with medication and therapy.
This condition shortens the average life expectancy by about five to 10 years.
