On her story, Hadid also shared an image of bandages on her arms, writing, “After 10 years of needles, my tiny veins usually give out once before we get a good one.”

In the past, the 24-year-old has spoken about her disease. Last August she shared a list of common symptoms of Lyme disease, which included headache, fatigue, joint pain, fever and more. She wrote that she feels “at least 10 of these attributes without fail”.

During a 2017 interview with PORTER magazine, she recalled a time when she “couldn’t get out of bed for six days.”

“My brain would get all foggy, and I couldn’t see,” she told the publication. “That was the hardest time of my life.”
