I just watched my fave soap and am a bit shocked as the little girls mum just said she has MS. She is bed ridden , and in a chair sometimes and has a breathing tube up her nose. It’s really shocked me as the storylines been running for some time but ms has only just been mentioned. I thought she had something else wrong with her and it didn’t seem like ms at all before… now I am in shock… as it’s been conveyed as a very advanced/progressive and aggressive form of ms. It’s very scary to watch…..and yes I know it’s just a soap.. but it has shocked me and made me feel kind of scared and horrified too. What are your thoughts please ? I do wish these soaps would look into things in more detail… hollyoaks storyline seems to have stopped being mentioned despite two characters having ms and corries male character with ms is never mentioned either. If it is, it’s very unrealistic with no detail.
