Earlier this month, Lena Dunham announced on Instagram that should would not be doing any press for the final season of her hit HBO show "Girls" due to her endometriosis diagnosis. Now Lena Dunham is letting her fans know that she's doing well and their words have done wonders for her.
The 29-year-old thanked her 2.3 million Instagram fans for their support during this trying (and painful time) with a heartfelt post on her social media page.
The Golden Globe winner wrote, "Thank you all so much for the support over the last few weeks. I cannot even begin to express how much good your generosity has done for my body/soul. I've met so many amazing sisters (and bros!) in arms through what some might label my 'over-sharing' and it has healed me in a multitude of ways."
The actress added, "To add to my good fortune, TOMORROW I get to bring you more@girlshbo at 10:00pm on HBO. In this pic I was headed to the gynecologist feeling decidedly unglamorous when I passed a bus bearing our poster. Remind you of a certain iconic credits sequence? CC@sarahjessicaparker."
On Feb. 8, the controversial figure took to Instagram to let her fans know that she wouldn't be out and about doing events for the upcoming season of "Girls," which premieres on Feb. 21.
Lena explained, "I am currently going through a rough patch with the illness and my body (along with my amazing doctors) let me know, in no uncertain terms, that it's time to rest."
According to the Mayo Clinic, endometriosis is, "an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus -- the endometrium -- grows outside your uterus."
That sounds very painful, but we are glad to hear that Lena is on the mend!
