“I’m not 100%, but I’m still healing,” TV and radio personality, real name Shirlene Pearson, began on Instagram on Saturday before summing up her terrifying ordeal and confirming that she has suffered a stroke.

“I want to thank you for all the love and support…and I appreciate you all being concerned,” she continued.

Juicy, 50, clarified that the type of stroke she had ‘involved bleeding in the brain’, which ‘can cause different things for different people’, before detailing the disheartening toll it had on her functions basic motor and cognitive abilities.

“I had to learn to walk, learn to talk, learn to eat, learn to swallow,” she said, mentioning that she still has speech therapy.

“I can’t even really say ‘Ms. Juicy Baby’ like I usually say,” she added, sadly.

As she received congratulations from her fans, “A lot of people reminded me that I was a fighter. I appreciate it, she shared.

She also spoke of her family’s help once she was released from the ICU.

“My mother and my sister both stopped their daily lives to come here and help me, so that I could get better and take care of my daily life,” the reality star described. “Again, I want to thank you all, but I also want to thank them too.”

She also explained, “I couldn’t work. So there’s no money coming in,” before pointing to the link to a GoFundMe his sister started earlier this month to help cover Juicy’s medical bills.

“As you can see, I am not dead. I am here. It may have slowed me down, but I’m here, and I’ll be back 100% when the time comes,” she continued. “But I can’t push it and I can’t rush it.”

“This is not me,” she concluded, her voice cracking. “I can’t stay like this for too long, all of you. So keep praying. We will be back very soon. I love you and thank you.”
