“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes revealed earlier this year that she was rushed to the hospital after feeling pain in her chest area. Even though her husband thought she was just experiencing some gas pains, she revealed that the pain wasn’t the same. She went to the hospital and she was diagnosed with blood clots in her lungs. According to a new Bravo blog published on Dec. 16, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes is now revealing that struggling with blood clots is a long journey.

“I'm not 100 percent, but I'm trying to get there," she has revealed about her recent health struggles. "It's been tough, but I've been pretty strong. I'm coming back." She had been dealing with a hectic schedule, but it sounds like she won’t exactly be signing off on a clean bill of health soon. “It takes about six weeks to really get back to feeling yourself," she says. "But I'm on blood thinners now. I would have to say I'm about 80 percent. I'm doing a lot better."

But she is trying to move forward and it sounds like she is hoping for a new home. "I'm sure [my new home] won't come by Christmas," she says. "It's the only gift on my list. I'm going to have my dream home in Atlanta and then I will always have a condo in Los Angeles because I'm always there.” It sounds like she isn’t about to slow down her hectic schedule, but she will be taking greater care of her health.

What do you think of her journey to get better?
