Dunham wrote on Instagram: “I could choose to be embarrassed by those paparazzi pics, I mean, that’s probably the point, going to publish it in the first place, but I’m really not.

“I could lie and say that it was an early Halloween look (don’t you get it? I’m going as a con-woman out of a Florida prison after he was found not guilty of the murder of her husband, and now she is trying to obtain disability license plates.)

“But the truth is, it is just like,” This is what life is, when I’m struggling the most with chronic illnesses.

“Yes, yes, I can wear my glamorous nighty for two hours. And then, an hour later, I’m sitting in a meeting, watching the approach of the job, which I love.

“This is a two-fold life of a woman who has a chronic illness, we are still in the rock, dreams, and goals, and to share a passion (and fashion), and we have to live many lifetimes in a single day.

“Well, tell me about your day.”
