Dr. Oz, march 15, 2013, is a previously broadcast show where he sits down with Meredith Vieira to have a candid discussion about living with a family member who has Multiple Sclerosis. This who was really an eye opener to the true love and dedication that Meredith and her husband have for each other. Richard, Meredith’s husband, took the bold step of telling her about his disease when they first met. It didn’t stop their love from blossoming and they both seem to appreciate each other very much. I was really touched at the way these two kept thanking the other one through the whole interview.
In case you didn’t know, MS is a disease that slowly progresses and has a range of symptoms that can pop up at any time. One day you may not be able to move your right arm. The next it may be your leg. As the disease interrupts the signal system our body has with the brain, permanent damage is done and eventually a person does not recover fully from the “episodes.” It would be hard for anyone to watch a loved one go through this. Meredith and Richard are a testament to true love because they have shared this disease throughout their long marriage. This show is a must see for anyone who is living with a family member that has MS. It is also a show we can all learn from to make our relationships better.
