"Let's just say my transfer from the Isle Chair to my own chair didn't go so well!" She added. "The move should've happened on the bridge like usual and not in front of a hundred ppl waiting to board, I shouldn't have had to ask for someone to call the paramedics and maybe the @americanair Gate Mgr should've at the very least asked if I was ok?"

"Thank you to all the Pgh international Airport Escorts that were so very kind & the hot firemen who swiftly got me on my feet, into my chair & on my way!!!" she ended her post.

Fans of the reality star took to the comments section of the heartbreaking post to express sympathy for her situation.

"This breaks my heart… hoping you are OK Miss Abby! [crying emoji] Love you so much!" one user commented.

"’m so sorry that happened to you! I hope you are OK!" Another user wrote.

"Oh no!!!! I’m so sorry. I hope you’re ok. Miss and love you," a third fan commented.

After reading the supportive messages, Miller noted she was still feeling some pain from the incident.

"Thank you all for asking – I’m stiff and my body aches," she explained, before adding that her "right hip & knee [are] banged up" and her "Right shoulder is sore."
