Could it be she is taking time off to promote her new show? The thought of her being ill bothers me. Doesn’t she tweet?? I don’t know how so I can’t check.

I certainly hope her anorexic is off eating a sandwich somewhere and getting acting lessons. She is hideous looking and a hideous actress.

I would like to see you on stage going what she does, She is an Actress, What you consider hideous and what she does for a living is two different things. You can’t see passed your nose. It called ACTING.

With a name like “IHateSoaps” I wonder why you are even looking at soap blogs!
Seems you have a slight character flaw. In light of that you have no right to judge Kirsten or anyone else for that matter.

Get better soon Kristen.Maybe we all should give the actress replacing her a break. I think she is doing a good job.Hopefully Kristen will be back soon.

I didn’t mean to bash the actress. It is just that the character of Maxie is very self absorbed, but in the Kirsten’s familiar hands, she is quirky and endearing, with a stranger behaving that way, it loses the endearing quality. I don’t think anyone but Kirsten could pull off that character – remember prior actresses did not play Maxie this way, and I know that I never cared for Maxie until Kirsten took over. It didn’t hurt that she reminds me of a younger Kristina Wagner.

I agree that not to bash the fill in girl, but Maxie is not Maxie without Kirsten. I have to wonder tho, if they are aware of how long she will be out “sick”, I tend to think “sick” is another word for rehab. If that is the case, I sent the best thoughts for Kirsten to find the help she needs and look forward to her return on GH.

Thoughts and prayers to Kirsten during this difficult time. She is missed on GH. No one can take her place as Maxie Jones. GH may as well send her character to New York or somewhere because the recast doesn’t fill her shoes. Get well soon.

Sorry to hear Kristen is ill. Here’s wishing Kristen a speedy recovery. No offense to Jen Lilly, but Kristen is the best at playing Maxie Jones. Get well soon. GOD bless Kristen. Hope to see you back on the set soon.

Kirsten, you are so sweet and no one can play Maxie with the heart and sole that you do. But on a personal level, you are missing your family and your brother and you need to fix your friendship with Farah. Too many stresses for such a young and talented young girl. You need to release some of the stress which I’m praying will help to ease your endometriosis. God bless you and get well soon.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.
