OK - so there I was in Southbourne, hot, bpothered and stumbling.
A lady asked me if I was ok and we got to talking about MS.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT SHE SAID!!! (Its laughable)
She mentioned Jack Osbourne's recent diagnosis and (having ALREADY TOLD ME SHE DIDN'T KNOW ANYONE WITH MS) said that she had read that 'drinking a glass of milk each morning helps him' and therefore 'I should do that and I'd feel a lot better.'
I have cereal almost every morning. What do I pour on that? Water? Coffee?...what's that you say??...oh yes, MILK!! Do you know - wish I'd had a GLASS of it instead of on CEREAL cause then I'd feel cured!!! (Told you its laughable)
I have absolutely nothing against Mr. Osbourne and wish him the best and wouldn't want this disease for anyone. But what is it about a 'celebrity' coming out in the media that gives the common person the right to think they know everything about a disease when previously they didn't???!!!
