Khloe Kardashian Admits Stress Played a Role in Scary Staph Infection

khloe kardashianWhen we heard about Khloe Kardashian's staph infection, we couldn't help but wonder if the incredible amount of stress she's been under was perhaps taking a toll (not to mention all that time spent in Lamar's apparently staph-ridden hospital!). And now a recent tweet from Khloe confirms that yes, all the recent stress definitely added to her illness!


In a tweet we can only assume was written from Khloe's bed (where she's reportedly resting up on a regime of antibiotics and painkillers), the star said "Staph infection is no joke. Mine was exacerbated by stress which is not a great combo. I'm under great medical care&receiving tons of love!" Check it out:

Yikes! Staph infection certainly is not a joke, as anybody who's ever seen an episode of House knows. (Unfortunately, it's all too common for the infection to be contracted in hospitals by both patients and visitors, because, well, hospitals are pretty germy places by nature.) And the number stress does on one's immune system can make fighting off a case of the sniffles tough, never mind a potentially fatal illness like staph.

But it sounds like Khloe was already concerned about what the stress of the Lamar situation was doing to her, even before she got sick. As she said in a recent interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune:

Just recently I've been in the hospital for almost three and a half weeks straight, and finally everyone was saying, 'Khloe, you have to get out of the hospital and just for an hour, go to the gym and do something that's for you. Nothing's going to happen to Lamar.' I had such anxiety going to the gym, but as soon as I left, and Kendall and I worked out with my trainer, I felt like, 'Oh my god, I'm okay. I'm a human again!'

That's right, girl -- take care of yourself! You know what they say: You've got to take care of yourself first before you can take care of anybody else. Unfortunately, that's the opposite of how most of us women operate, but that doesn't make it any less true -- and it sounds like Khloe is learning it the hard way right now. Here's hoping the Thanksgiving dinner she's reportedly hosting at her home this week doesn't wear her out too much! Remember, Khlo, you can always cancel!! (Or at least make sure you're not doing any of the work!)
