Ashley Olsen suffering from Lyme disease

Ashley OlsenAshley Olsen (left) and Mary-Kate Olsen has been looking somewhat sickly lately, as witnessed in this photo at left taken at the Met Gala on May 3rd, and now we know why. The 28-year-old fashion designer (at left in the photo, with short sleeves) is thought to be in the later stages of Lyme disease, which is caused by tick bites.

Symptoms include fatigue, fever and headache. A source close to the former child star (who starred in the long-running series Full House with her twin sister Mary-Kate Olsen) told OK Magazine: “She’s really sick. It’s gotten worse. She was diagnosed in the very late stages so early detection measures weren’t options for her. She’s really going through it.” They added, “When she does come to work, she looks haggard and disheveled. And she’s often moody. Ashley’s having a very rough time right now.”

Now I’m no doctor, but if Lyme disease makes you look “haggard and disheveled” she’s been battling this for at least 10 years. I thought the deer-in-headlights blank stare was a fashion thing…who knew?

In all seriousness, Lyme disease is no joke and we wish Ashley a speedy recovery. ~Andree Rhooms

    Wow! My dad had this a few years ago, he had to spend some time in a hospital, but he did recover. It took a while, but he did lose a lot of weight. She needs to stay home and just get better. You guys have plenty of money, your health should come first.

    They both seem rather odd in this picture. But Ashley shouldn’t be at work, she should be at home recovering. I have little experience with this disease but me have simple knowledge I know that that is not good for her health. Put some of that money where it’s needed.
