I am not a big fan of the animated show, "King of the Hill" , but as I was channel surfing last night I saw one of the main characters in a wheelchair, so I had to stop and watch.
Though not extremely accurate in the portrayal, it was an episdoe dealing with the diagnosis of diabetes. WOW!
The character was told by his doctor that he would loose his legs and so he got a wheelchair, even before it was needed. After feeling sorry for himself (we can all relate) and fighting his friends efforts to make his home accessable, he found a new group of chair bound sports buddies. Got fit, (for an animated character any way) and started to enjoy life.
Anyway to make a long story short, he "cured" himself of his diabetes thru his activity. Realized that he didn't need the wheelchair and confronted his stupid doctor for giving up on him.
I was quite amazed at the story. At least it is getting some different concepts out there.
Did anyone else see it? What did you think about it?
