Christina Applegate once again charms her fans. The actress openly talks about what her illness is doing to her, how she feels, and how she plans her future. This time, she revealed what else she must check off her life's list.

Christina Applegate has earned the sympathy and recognition of audiences thanks to her energy and versatility in theater, film, and television. She is most associated with the character Kelly Bundy from the series "Married... with Children." After the successful eleven-season series ended, she had another television success, starring in her comedy "Jesse" on NBC. In 1999, due to the high ratings of the series, Applegate earned nominations for the People’s Choice Award and the Golden Globe. One of Applegate's recent productions is the Netflix series "Dead to Me." Applegate was already seriously ill during the work on it, and filming had to be paused.

Christina Applegate shared her wish list

The actress is candid about what is happening in her life. She believes that if she openly talks about her illness, it will help many people who may also be struggling with it. To remind you, Applegate was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. On social media or in her podcast "MeSSy," the actress talks about the pain she experiences, the inability to walk, and how the disease affects her psyche.

She revealed in one of the episodes that she was in "a real ‘fuck it all’ depression where it’s kind of scaring me a little bit because it feels really fatalistic. I’m trapped in, like, this darkness right now that I haven’t felt in I don’t even know how long, probably 20-something years."

"There are just certain things that people take for granted in their lives that I took for granted. Going down the stairs, carrying things—you can't do that anymore. It f**king sucks. I can still drive my car short distances. I can bring up food to my kid. Up, never down," she confessed.

Applegate has now posted on X, humorously listing what else she needs to do in her life. Curious about what dreams the actress has?

"There are things I want to do with the days I have left in life. I want to work with Shirley MacLaine And do shots with Cher! And yes my days are so big. Just saying." she wrote, and supportive comments from fans poured in: "You are a beautiful person. I hope you achieve many desired things" or "Did you tell Cher?! I think she'll agree quickly."
