Conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck opened up on his network TheBlazeTV on Monday, and it turns out he has some sort of mysterious illness that he’s been hiding for years from the public. He said he has suffered from vocal chord paralysis, eyesight issues, extreme pain and seizures, but now he’s cured. The rare illness hasn’t been named, but it is being described as an autoimmune disorder and adrenal fatigue.

Some people (we all know he has some haters) aren’t exactly sympathetic.

While others are standing by Beck:

Beck is recovering, though. Or is totally cured?
“Over the last 10 months, I did all kinds of tests and therapies, which included everything from electric stimulation to weird gyroscope tests like the astronauts use where they’re flipping you around,” Beck said in his interview. “After months of treatment and completely changing the way I eat, sleep, work and live, along with ongoing hormone treatment and intensive physical therapy, I have reversed the process.”
