Shahs of Sunset's Golnesa 'GG' Gharachedaghi's 6-Year Battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis – and Why She 'Turned to the Bottle'

Originally posted 07/20/2016 02:05PM

When Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2010, she brushed it off – after all, how serious could an illness she'd never heard of be?

As it turns out, very – and now, six years later, no one knows that better than the Shahs of Sunset star herself, who for the last nine months has been undergoing a combination of infusion and chemotherapy to treat the auto-immune disease – a chronic inflammatory disorder that largely affects the joints as the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's tissues.

"It's very confusing when you've never heard of a disease before and all of a sudden you're supposed to in one second accept that you have it," Gharachedaghi tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. "I can't lift things the way a 35-year-old should be lifting things. I can't hold my phone for long periods of times without my hands going numb or shaking. I can't sit in the car for too long."

"You're tired all the time," she adds. "It doesn't matter how much you sleep – you're always tired."
