Russian Influencer Miroslava Duma — part of the original crop of street-style stars that rose in the mid-2000s — said on Instagram on Sunday that she almost died this year from a “rare lung disease.” She said she was given seven months to live. It’s unclear when she received the diagnosis, or whether or not she’s still sick, although she wrote, “It was crazy scary then, but looking back, I realise that the past few months of recovery were possibly the happiest months of my entire life.”

In a lengthy caption, Duma wrote that her illness made her reassess her life as an influencer and editor. “My entire life I was seeking approval and obsessing over ‘likes’ both in the physical and virtual worlds, without realizing that I actually had to learn how to ‘like’ myself first. Years of self criticism and doubt, stress, dieting, physically, mentally and emotionally pushing and pushing myself got my immune system to collapse and I had made myself fatally sick.”
