The Real Housewives Of New York star Bethenny Frankel, 48, is feeling grateful to be alive.  On Monday, Bethenny revealed she was hospitalized after suffering from a nearly fatal allergic reaction to fish over the weekend.

“I have a rare fish allergy. Sunday, I had soup, itched & was unconscious for 15 mins then to ER & ICU for 2 days w BP of 60/40. I couldn’t talk, see, thought I had a stroke & dying & told if 5 mins later I’d be dead. 911 & EPI saved me. I’ll never not carry an #epipen.”

Bethenny also thanked Newton Wellesley Hospital in Massachusetts by tagging them on Twitter and writing, “xo.”

Following the news of the incident, a number of fans flooded Frankel’s comment section with well wishes.

“She was in ICU for two days and just got out tonight,” a source claims. “She almost died. It was that serious. Her blood pressure was through the roof and she was unconscious. She went into anaphylactic shock. Her boyfriend saved her life.”

Bethenny elaborated on Paul’s actions in a later tweet.

“Thanks for all of the support. I was with someone who went to get me a @Benadryl & returned & I was unconscious. He managed to call 911 & get pill down my throat w water. He saved my life.”

Bethenny previously suffered an allergic reaction on an episode of RHONY when the ladies visited Cartagena, Colombia during season 10.

“Is there fish in that soup?’ Bethenny fearfully asked her co-stars during the episode while they were all seated for dinner. “I’m itching. My throat is itching. I thought it was chicken, f—.”

She quickly fled the room with water in her hand only to come back later to admit she vomited.

“It’s the worst feeling, your throat gets itchy, you feel like you’re going to throw up. It’s like poison inside you,” Bethenny explained in a confessional.

In addition to her recent allergic reaction, it’s been a tough year for the Skinny Girl founder.

In August, Bethenny’s on-off boyfriend Dennis Shields died.

“It’s hard to breathe & I appreciate you giving me the space & support to try to do so. It’s excruciating-sudden death is no closure & constant ?s & memories. Our relationship is current so it’s painfully raw. Trying to stay healthy & move through it w tears & close friends. Xo,” Bethenny tweeted.

Dennis was found dead at the age of 51 in his Trump Tower apartment following a suspected overdose.
