The TV personality wrote a lengthy caption to her 3.8 million fans and followers. After announcing her return, she began opening up about her reasons for being away from social media for so long.

Left untreated, Lyme disease can lead to health problems like joint pain, and in other cases, serious neurological problems like “weakness or impaired muscle movement,” according to the Mayo Clinic.

“My phone addiction didn’t help either, it took so much time to be present in my life. It’s so easy to get lost in the stories of others while forgetting to live and love your own,” she continued.

Yolanda also reflected on the past and how phones have caused people to “lose the art of communication.”

She then explained how the break had had an amazing and positive impact on her life.

“In any case, this has been a wonderful reset, time to break the habit of picking up my phone 50 times a day.”

The Real Housewives graduate explained she was able to “focus on myself, my health journey and being present at this moment in my life.”

To conclude her caption, Yolanda added how her life has changed for the better since her nine-month hiatus.

“Time has slowed down and feels much calmer, more time to just sit and actually read a book, time to reconnect with people, be creative and most importantly, time with my family. ”

Her daughter Bella, 25, also seemed to share her mother’s joy, typing “We love you” in the comments section.

During an interview on The Wendy Williams Show, Yolanda spoke about her battle with Lyme disease and the time it took to properly diagnose the health issue.

“At first, for maybe a year, a year and a half, I just thought, I’m tired, I’ve got the flu,” she explained.

Doctors initially told her she was suffering from chronic fatigue, but she said, “Something ate my brain. I can not think any more. I mean, I forgot the alphabet, I forgot how to read a book.”

After meeting with a specialist abroad in Belgium, the mother of three was officially diagnosed with “chronic neurologoic Lyme disease”. Both their daughter Bella and son Anwar, 23, also have the condition.
