DAYBREAK 8.10

LIVING WITH MS ON DAYBREAK FOR ANYONE INTERESTED.

I’m watching :slight_smile: x

Bugger turned on to see the very end(Thank you for joining us)!!!

 

sorry missed it but i did watch it on bbc news at 6.30 to be honest i came on here to see if anyone else saw it , i felt a little uneasy with the guy who had ms stating that everyone has some kind of dsisability ( ok maybe they do) and everyone has something that they cant do (yes) and ive had ms for years and am still working .(yes so true)

what i found is that not everyone has the same symptoms or disabilities ..

that its not always visable..

some people suffer in silence...

I THHOUGHT IT WAS MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS AWARENESS WEEK

SO WHY JUST PORTRAY ONE SIDE OF MS

WAS IT ANY GOOD ?

I’ve only been diagnosed about 6 weeks I’m still coming to terms with it but seeing someone like Amy whinehouse mum with it and still going around all be it she has a stick now, gives me some hope it’s not all doom and gloom x

If you missed it, it is on itv+1 at 9.10!

I found this an interesting read:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-17786085

I thought it struck the right balance between the effects of MS and giving people the message that life goes on after a diagnosis of MS.

I caught it at 9.10. I thought it gave a pretty realistic picture of how my life is with MS but obviously this won’t be the same for lots of others. Also, the woman from the MS soc seemed to be implying that all of us have RRMS. I know it’s a large majority but it’s not all of us. Anyway, I think overall it was handled quite well except when Kate Garraway wanted to know how Janice Winehouse felt since her daughter died. Duh, this is about MS and how the f***do you think she feels?

They gave more airtime to Tulisia than MS.

What is more important to see and learn about?

Hi Jellybean,

Good to see you. I agree.

Hey Teresa and thankyou.

I was annoyed that MS was not shown in its true form that many of us suffer.Just it appeared to me to say hey you got MS get on with it I do.

No way I have just come back from doctors with the Amitriptyline just increased and more painkillers,the advice from the doctor was make the most of your good days,wich I certainly do.

I thought it was brilliant, and showed that having MS doesnt mean you are doomed immediately.

The thing is the true story of Janis Winehouse is she didnt get diagnosed until about 7 years ago, they thought she might have had it when the kids were little but she decided to ignore it.

What it did please me about is i was told by a neurologist there is no way i could have had MS since 1982 (when I did have really good signs of it), because i would be far more disabled, and more stuff would show on my MRI etc.

Well this was not the case with Janis Winehouse as it took several years to finally get a real diagnosis.

When I watched it, the way she is was ME. I am like that, i get up go down the stairs, put washing in the machine, hoover a bit and use the walls and furniture to balance. I however could never have bent down like she did to put the washing in the machine, i have to get onto the floor and push it in lol.

But anyway it made me feel sort of comforted that I am not mad, and I am doing things that someone with long term MS IS DOING.

So there Mr Neuro lol.

 

 

Quite!

What channel on tv was it on…and is that 9.10 am?

I want to see it. I`ll try via my netbook.

Ta. luv Pollx

Hi, I`ve just watched it on my netbook.

Mmm, think it gave a very potted image of living with MS, just from Janice`s take on it.

Anyone newly dx`d or awaiting a dx would gain confidence and not think it is as life shattering as us `in the know` know.

Not much you can say in such a short time, eh?
