Hotflash, and Nik...Flash, I new Neil had MS....sometimes when he's out for a day or to I say to my hubby, I wonder if he's have treatments of some kind. Because have you ever noticed that his face at times appears a little puffy. when he return back to the show, or????????? " maybe it's just my imagination'.
But getting back to Neil's talk with Ann R..I would agree with you 100% I was very disappointed myself. Especially that I posted wanting everyone to watch the show....and it ended up being a big
Niki, my first impression of her was that Ann, was either in the very beginning of her dx's. Or she was like myself in the beginning I was symptom free......although she did say fatigue was and issue for her and she needed to make the time to rest in between their live appearence. I didn't even have that problem myself. So she may have to deal with a few things.... their just unrecognizable visually. or like you said a very mild case. And that's 'VERY POSSIBLE I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE'.
For me seeing her appear heathy....it really didn't come as a surprise at all to me. Since I looked like the picture of health on the outside also and yet MS was lurking within me all that time...But then again I was symptom free, if that makes any sense to you but it's was true.. Not everyones MS hits them like a ton of bricks. Some are very fortunate...like I was with my onset.....'but eventally it's at your door'. So not knowing how long Ann R., has had MS we can only spectulate.
And as far as her portraying of MS as a devasting disease. I really didn't see that.....I guess I was fooled it wasn't foMS at all it was only a platform for votes. Now! Neil, should have elarberated when the subject of MS was bought up. But instead he choose not to ...maybe put her on the spot, or maybe didn't have the time or, she was really only there for the votes. I guess the show was only for political purposes and not so much on the subject of MS, like I THOUGHT, I WAS MISLEAD. And that was totally wrong because it was on Fridays show, that 'Neil ended the show with saying Mitch Ronmeys, wife Ann, talks about her MS on Monday'. My only thought was the main subject would have been MS as the main discussion, knowing Neil himself has MS .
Oh well guys thanks for letting me know at least 2
people watch the show....sorry guys for crying wolf....
and turning out being a dud.
