This week, Ann Romney shared that she had a multiple sclerosis flare-up during the primaries -- and she didn't even tell her husband, not wanting to worry him while he was running for president. In an interview with NBC's Rock Center, she revealed it was a "little bitty" incident, but "enough to give [her] a real scare."

“It was such a crazy time, and I didn’t want to have anyone worrying about me, especially Mitt. I didn’t tell anyone, but I knew I had to quit,” Ann Romney said.

Ann Romney, who was diagnosed with MS in 1998, said the scare served as a “reminder that I can’t keep up the pace.”

“I started feeling tingling and a little bit of numbness coming back and I was dizzy, I started to get dizzy, the dizzy head, you caught the MS fog, the real foggy brain,” Ann Romney said.

Yet another reason to admire her courage, grace, and selflessness!
