Lena Dunham is on the mer-mend!
After being taken to the hospital and undergoing surgery in March, the Girls star and creator shared that she is doing much better.
“I feel great. I feel really alive,” Dunham, 29, told People at the 8th annual Blossom Ball organized by the Endometriosis Foundation of America on Tuesday.
“I feel the general itchiness and strangeness that I always feel when I get dressed up for an event. But that’s all,” she joked about the disorder – which causes the lining of the uterus to grow outside of the uterus.
“I got much more rest time than the average woman with endo would probably be permitted, considering my job. I have been treating myself like a delicate, delicate flower.”
Dunham, who was honored with the Blossom Award, is about to film the sixth season of Girls so it’s good that she’s feeling good. The exploits of overpriveleged teens won’t write themselves!
“I did have a health crisis in February and March, but what was so amazing was that my jobs allowed me to rest and binge watch Kimmy Schmidt and lay with a hot water bottle, and do what it is I want to do,” she said. “And that’s not the case for so many women who have this disease.”
