"Bachelor Nation" star Kelley Flanagan earlier revealed she was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Several weeks after the reality star opened up about her health, she has given an update on her treatment process.

Flanagan explained that although she wasn't feeling well, she felt worse due to people's comments on her situation. People misunderstood Flanagan's condition because of her physical appearance.

According to the "The Bachelor" star, she has had great challenges with Lyme disease, and people still say she doesn't have chronic Lyme because she was seen taking photos for New York Fashion Week.

However, the 29-year-old only appeared to be living life the best way possible. She explained that after NYFW, she would be flying down to Boston for nine months of "intense" treatment.

Flanagan once revealed she detected a change in her health during the filming of "The Bachelor" in 2020. According to the former contestant, her reaction during certain situations changed.


Weber, 30, noted that he and Flanagan no longer have hard feelings after their breakup in 2020.

She noted that some of her colleagues on the show were aware of her health situation, although they didn't know the exact ailment. Most people associated her symptoms with a cold, but things turned out differently.


The star also talked about "the anxiety" she felt on the show, noting how she realized she was affected by Lyme disease, not the ABC series. Flanagan is presently single, and according to the reality star, she is focusing on getting better.


Flanagan, 29, who kept fans informed about her present health status, didn't appreciate it when fans kept making disappointing comments on her health. She explained on social media that she had been "pretty honest" about testing positive for Lyme.

The Illinois native also added that she is trying to remain positive even with the changes in her body. However, it appeared that Lyme might be in the family as her brothers have been diagnosed with the disease in the past.



During the attorney's time on "The Bachelor," she and Peter Weber fell for each other and began dating. However, their relationship lasted till December 2020. The couple reunited in 2021 and soon called it quits pretty early in February.

During a recent episode of Barstool's Tea with Publyssity podcast, Weber, 30, noted that he and Flanagan no longer have hard feelings after their breakup in 2020. According to the pilot, the ex-sweethearts have both moved on.

Weber also wished Flanagan "nothing but the best" before adding that his relationship with the attorney was the best he had. Weber and Flanagan first met a short while after filming for season 24 commenced.


The now ex-couple announced their relationship in May 2020. Weber broke the news of their split on social media with a caption that proved that the two had a wonderful time together, but things did not work out.
