Throughout his "life-threatening" health condition, Ashton Kutcher revealed how his wife, Mila Kunis, supported him. The first diagnosis of Kutcher's disease was vasculitis. "Vasculitis" is an inflammatory disease that affects the blood vessels, restricting the flow of blood and causing tissue damage and organ damage.
“I woke up one day and was having vision issues, could hardly see,” he explained. “Knocked out my hearing, which threw off my equilibrium, my balance and I couldn’t walk”.
As a result, the actor lost the ability to hear and see properly.
“There’s a standard you become accustomed to in your life, like being able to see clearly,” he said.
“And then suddenly you can’t see, like you have this occlusion and you can’t see. And then, you’re like: ‘Why are you not f***ing talking louder, because I can’t hear you?’ You want to reclaim the health that you once had”.
“Part of it is this mental thing I have around achieving a full comeback from waking up at the hospital,” Kutcher said. “I was unable to walk and I was like, wait a second, if I can go from not being able to walk to running a marathon in a three-year span, then I can let that be a part of the past and be like: ‘I’m back.
I’m good.’” “You don’t really appreciate it until it’s gone,” he said. “Until you go: ‘I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to see again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to hear again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to walk again.’” Moreover, he explained how the autoimmune disorder changed his perspective, adding: “The minute you start seeing your obstacles as things that are made for you, to give you what you need, then life starts to get fun, right? You start surfing on top of your problems instead of living underneath them”.
