Best wishes being sent out to one of the Taste of Reality team’s favorites from Bachelor Nation, Kelley Flanagan, who recently was diagnosed with Lyme Disease.

The brunette beauty was in tears when she shared her unfortunate news with her Instagram followers.

Kelley’s health update:

“I know i’ve shared so many of my health tips and tricks, have always told you that my body is super sensitive and I’ve always knew something was a little bit off [sic]. When i would consistently see how my body would react to things compared to family/friends, i decided to finally get tested for serval different things and tested positive for lyme disease and several other co-infections [sic].”

Keeping a positive attitude, Kelly explained, “It’s a blessing and a curse because now i can target why i feel off so often but also means several different lifestyle changes and extensive research on how to help/hopefully cure this [sic]! I know this is going to be tough for me seeing what my brothers have gone through mentally and physically but i’m going to put so much of my time and energy into figuring this out and combatting this [sic].”

“Love all of you and let’s take on this new journey.”
