Rocking down, part of stage, while her spouse, Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas, performed in Chula Vista, Ca, Marisol Thomas could have showed up an attractive image of wellness and pleasure as she sang along into the band’s hit, “Disease.” But behind the smiles, the scene had been an uncommon minute of reprieve from the debilitating 14-year combat an illness which Rob claims has transformed their perspective on life, robbed any ideas of experiencing more kiddies and “inhabited” components of their spouse.
“It’s crazy just how normal something irregular may become,” Rob tells ET, during an unusual meeting with Marisol to promote international Lyme Alliance’s third Annual New York Gala — where he can perform and Marisol is an honoree on her advocacy work with Lyme as well as other tick-borne conditions. “It’s like if one day you woke up and there is a living that is alien your property while the very very first handful of months you’d be f**king freaked out, but before long you’d title it and it would you should be here. This vomiting happens to be such as this weird alien that’s moved into our life and inhabited my wife. Sometimes she’s just not by by herself. Viewing anyone closest that is you’re be somebody aside from by herself is really so hard.”
The few has grappled with Marisol’s wellness battles for longer than a ten years, during which she visited countless experts, in need of accurate diagnosis and treatment.
Showing the signs of autoimmune condition, she had been told she had Multiple Sclerosis about a minute, Lupus the second and also at one point, while lying in a medical center for several days, she thought she had pancreatic cancer tumors.
