Anyone else been annoyed by portrayals of MS on TV?
I was trying out a new show – Hart of Dixie – where a New York doctor has to move to a southern state where she’s an outsider trying to fit in. She ends up finding a woman on the floor in the toilets at a bar and discovers that she has MS (and hasn’t told anyone). This was followed by the statement from the woman to the doctor that ‘we both know that my life is over’ (or something along those lines). Cue me shouting at my TV ‘of course it isn’t!’
Susan in Neighbours only mentions her MS when she needs to have a relapse for story reasons, but at least it’s a more optimistic view.
