By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/15/2012 

Lisa Whelchel went from being on Survivor: Philippines to being a survivor in real life.

Whelchel, the former Facts of Life star, has announced she's been diagnosed with West Nile virus.

"Dr. just called with blood test results...I have West Nile. Ugh. I'm fine, just tired. Takes a year to recover," Whelchel tweeted on Tuesday.

The Survivor: Philippines castaway, who is still in the running to win the million dollars, subsequently tweeted she's "expecting a full recovery."

According to People, nearly 4,000 people in the United States have been infected with West Nile virus this year.
