I think we can all agree that the Oprah Show got it wrong during the episode America’s Silent Killer.
When I saw that Bret Michaels would appear on Wednesday’s show, I wondered how his diabetes would be highlighted. After all, the media has put forth all sorts of seeming inaccuracies about him not being able to manage pain because of his medical condition.
His diabetes was mentioned twice by him in the piece, but neither time was it a focus of the conversation. Nor was it alluded to how diabetes will affect his recovery. He did say something about hating the thought of being hospitalized because he is a lifetime diabetic.
Overall, the episode was good as far as explaining his brain condition and treatment. And at least they didn’t put forth more misconceptions about diabetes, right?
