The 45-year-old continued, “I was taken to @northsidehosp and was met by the BEST nurses and doctors including @therealdrjackie to find out what’s wrong… yall, I have the FLU 🤦🏽‍♀️ and let me tell u it’s worse than COVID in my opinion…I’m on 5 different medications 😩..please be careful..”

“I wasn’t around a lot people and have NO IDEA where it came from.. enjoy y’all holiday AT HOME.. u don’t want this🤦🏽‍♀️ .. oh yeah I’m completely isolated cause it’s hella contagious 😷 I love y’all for real,” she wrote.

This isn’t the first time that Tamar has been hospitalized, in July 2020 she opened up about getting help for her mental health. She told her fans in a lengthy and personal Instagram letter that she’s now on a path to healing after hitting an emotional bottom.

Although she did not offer details about her condition or circumstances, she but did thank fans for their support and also urged followers to take mental health awareness seriously.
