“I can’t even hold my phone, I couldn’t hold a bottle. I wouldn’t be able to do anything.”

Kim said that it was a tough period in her life and that the uncertainty of what she was suffering from made it difficult.

She said: “Autoimmune issues are really scary. When you get a diagnosis — and I didn’t realise I was one of those people, but before I knew what it was, when it was really up in the air, you get in your head and you think of every worst possibility of what’s going to happen and how you’re going to live your life.”
