It was actually a pretty good show, very informative. They spent over half an hour talking about MS with Montel and Dr. Oz, and showed Montel at home, doing the shots, taking the supplements, working out. Dr. Oz explained MS and the variability of progression. And Oprah was representative of most folks, saying that she thought Montel's MS wasn't a big deal, since he "looks so good." So it was an eye-opener for her.
Montel did cry alot. I think he's got the emotional lability thing going on, where it's all on the surface. He talked about his constant pain, and how it just never goes away, and how he deals with it. I suppose I have more sympathy, since Jeff's MS is exactly like his...the constant pain and spasms, emotional stuff, fatigue. And people expect you to just get over it.
If you can catch a rerun, it might be worth it. There's info up on Oprah's site. But you're right, Robbie. He has it alot better than so many...but for better or worse, he's the public face of the disease. I like the man, because he's doing alot for others thru his foundation.
