Melissa Gilbert: I'm finding it hard to be sexy

Melissa Gilbert says that she is finding it difficult to get her "mojo" back as a contestant on Dancing With The Stars.

The actress hit her head while dancing with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on last week's show and was rushed to hospital.

She has written a blog on where she talks of the scary experience and the challenges moving forward.

"I remember Maks trying to keep me from closing my eyes," she recalled. "I've never had a concussion before. It is not fun. I pray that it's something I never experience again."

The former Little House on the Prairie star was diagnosed with grade-one concussion with moderate whiplash but says she is a lot more apprehensive now about doing her moves.

"I must admit though," she wrote. "I'm having a hard time getting my sexy, dancer mojo back."

"I'm being a bit self-protective, a bit tentative and I'm finding it hard to just let go and have fun. So that is my goal this week - to let go and have fun.

"Yes, I was hurt. Yes, it was scary but, that was then this is now It's time to believe again!"
