9:39 A.M. PT --
  NeNe just posted a message on her website saying she went to the hospital after feeling short of breath... and was diagnosed with blood clots in her lung. She says she's recovering at home now and she's "thankful to be alive." She also reassured her fans she did NOT have a heart attack.

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes was hospitalized this week for a mystery illness ... and the reality star says she's "blessed to be alive."

NeNe posted a photo of herself in a hospital room on Monday with IVs in her arms along with the caption, "My arms are hurting wit these IV’s #blessedtobealive."

Just one night before she tweeted that she had been sick for the past couple of days ... but never specified what she was suffering from.

There's one more clue -- one of NeNe's followers tweeted that he thought Leakes was suffering from exhaustion due to her "grueling schedule" ... and NeNe rewtweeted the message, adding, "I work my butt off."

Story developing ...

If you are really sick you wouldn't be tweeting from the hospital. Get some rest and go home then tweet.

She has an awfully large butt to work out so that isn't the problem! What exactly is she doing? The New Normal got cancelled, cancelled, cancelled....and the Real Housewives of Atlanta very rarely features her....Hmmmm.

I don't usually care about these crazy Housewives, blood clots anywhere are a really serious problem with the potential to kill you. I saw her on "The New Normal" and she was actually quite good. Get well, Nene.

Oh my NeNe, you better take care of yourself
alittle more.

You being over-weight (I dont care how fabulous your outfits and hair and make up are, you ARE over-weight) , could cause heart disease, high
blood pressure, diabetes, ect
Maybe trying to be a celebrity with all the stress,
might end you up in the skies, not worth it
