Published June 19, 2015

Taraji P. Henson's non-stop schedule finally caught up with her today, and the actress wound up in a hospital bed with an IV in her arm. While the Empire star wouldn't say exactly what knocked her off her feet, she did assure her fans that she's doing fine, and even kept up with her social media game by posting a pic of her IV drip to Instagram.


"God has a way of saying 'you're doing too much! SAT DOWN SOMEWHERE,'" she wrote. "I'm listening Father!!! I am taking several seats!!! Don't worry y'all I'm a tough cookie! HA! I will be just fine. My momma and best friends are flying in to check on me. I AM FINE!!!!!!! Just need to SAT ALL THE WAY DOWN for a bit. #listentoyourbody ????????????????????"

Henson has been all over the place lately — on the cover of Allure, looking snatched on red carpets from coast to coast and picking up trophies at awards shows. What's more, filming for season two of Empire starts any minute now. Hopefully she'll get a few days (or even a few minutes) off to regroup before stepping back into Cookie Lyon's shoes!

Get well soon, Taraji!
