August Alsina recently revealed via Instagram that he’s suffering with an autoimmune disorder. Basically his system is fighting itself. He explains that he doesn’t like to talk about it as he is not trying to attract anyone’s pity, that it is something that runs in his family.
“I have a liver disease where my autoimmune system is fighting itself. The reality is that I’m sick all the time,” he said. “I don’t really like to talk about it because I’m not looking for anybody’s sympathy. Don’t treat me like I’m a f—ing cancer patient because I’m not. I’ve been living my life in so much dis-ease that I’ve literally created it within myself… God has invested something inside of me, But I am not afraid of this Agony because I know that God pulls us back to shoot us FORWARD. 🏹 & To my lovely and loyal fans.. Please take care of yourself and your bodies & your SOULS. A beautiful face will fade, a beautiful body will too fade, but a beautiful soul is that FOREVER. I have so much to share, until I do.. Please say a prayer.”
The artist has had a few health scares the past year, from collapsing on stage, having multiple seizure during a show which landed him in a coma for a few days. He has underwent treatment for his failing eyesight as well.
I wish him the strength to continue fighting this disease.
Please excuse my defense mechanism in this clip.. I’m sicker than ever & having a hard time accepting what I feel & what the Doctors are saying is most true. After sitting down and talking with my fathers mother and sister.. They explained to me that sickness & illness runs in my family. My father & grandfather both died of severe illness. 😞😒 but they were FIGHTERS & that’s all that matters. 💪🏽✨✨✨ Just ride with me is all I ask.
