Reports from friends and colleagues of Tom Selleck say that the former action star is tortured daily while on the set of his hit TV show “Blue Bloods,” by his chronic rheumatoid arthritis. “Tom’s days as the car-jumping-scuba-diving-action star are a thing of the past,” one of his costars said.
“He hates that his arthritis slows him down. Like most stars, there’s a stunt double for dangerous action shots, but Tom even uses the guy for simple scenes, like getting in and out of his police car. His arthritis bothers him more some days than others. But Tom’s an old-school, true professional, so he never complains about the pain.”
Now, some in Tom’s family fear that the treatment that the actor is taking for arthritis, which likely involves steroid-like drugs, is causing him to slowly go blind. According to express.co.uk, Uveitis can be caused by arthritis. The condition causes inflammation in the middle layer of the eye. It is most common in those aged 20 to 59.
Tom’s friends say he is a tough guy, so he never complains. Still–this is a dreadful disease, and he needs your prayers.
