Health Update: Michael Klim Battling With Chronic Illness, But Is He Sick Now?
Michael Klim, a swimming star, recently provided an update on his fight against a rare neurological condition.
In 2020, Klim was identified as having a rare autoimmune disorder called chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, in which his body destroys the myelin sheaths surrounding the nerves. Unfortunately, it significantly impacted Klim’s emotional and physical well-being.
The Father of three finds it difficult to engage in routine activities such as walking and engaging with his kids, but he has learned a new strategy to keep it from overwhelming him.
He said that he takes an hour of the day, and during that time, he “feels sorry for himself,” whines, cries, and lets himself get down. However, after that one hour, he carries on with his responsibilities as a husband, Father, and coach.
Sadly, Klim is still sick, and his health has gotten worse. Klim said earlier in October how his posture is now so compromised that he cannot travel to Australia as frequently as he used to for business and treatment, forcing him to leave his chosen home of Bali.
