I have yet to watch the tivo, and although I'm sure Robbie's take on the show is pretty close to the truth, I want to be clear...
I'm not advertising anything. I'm merely the wife of a terrific guy who has MS. I'm also a very positive person (but as my teenage son has repeatedly told me, it's only the "emo" kids that are cool. http://www.wikihow.com/Be-Emo
) So, without any shred of coolness- no acerbic wit, blithely biting humor, or darkness- I post on these boards. I'm not being ironic....I really do cheerlead.
Hoping maybe to inspire or help someone else. Montel has done alot for the MS community, by giving MS a face and voice. Whether or not we agree with his approach, he has inspired alot of people to change their diets, look into treatments, and be proactive with their docs. He's raised a boatload of money for MS research, which is more than I've done. It appears this is all working for him, and I refuse to fault him for his attitude.
So if anyone found inspiration in this program, take heart. Hope it helped you. And if you didn't- it's super easy to erase the tivo, and you can have that hour back on your dvr- if not in your life
