In a copy of upcoming book What Happened obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com, the 69-year-old politician recalls feeling “awful” as she attended a memorial at the National September 11 Museum in New York on September 11, 2016.
“I felt awful,” she writes. “I’d been fighting a cough from what I thought was allergies for at least a month and saw my internist, Dr. Lisa Bardack, on September 9. She told me the cough was actually pneumonia.”
Though the doctor ordered her to take a few weeks off, she refused — which led her to collapse at the solemn ceremony.
“The sun was beaming down,” she remembers. “My head ached. You know the rest.”
She also suffered a concussion in 2012, but insists she had “recovered fully” before embarking on her campaign.
The former Secretary of State admits in hindsight, she should have taken a break during her illness.
As Radar previously reported, Clinton confesses other regrets in her tell-all.
She says she made a “boneheaded” blunder by using a private server for classified government emails, and should not have accepted payment for speeches.
