Courtney Love has revealed that she almost died of anemia in 2020, after being hospitalised with the condition, in a new Instagram post.
The Hole frontwoman shared a lengthy post where she detailed her experience, where she claimed at one point weighing 97 pounds (43.5 kilograms).
“People, I’ve been sad, and extremely sick,” she opened the post.
“Debilitated, in indescribable pain and in August at 97 pounds almost died in hospital from anaemia.
“I was stigmatised for being an addict for 9 months by many ill-equipped drs, backwards drs and quacks. While in debilitating acute pain. Then I met the most empathic wise pain management dr. I’m so grateful!”
She also explained that CBD oil played a huge role in helping her recovery and easing her pain.
“I used to scoff at cannabis / THC,” she said.
“And I also am no fan of the narcotic effect, hate weed feeling. This isn’t that. It’s woman and nature supporting us. It’s magic. But gods own CBD is a miracle.”
While she says she has been bedridden, she also claims she is “100% sober” and that she’ll “be strong again soon”.
