Idk, I've found his performances to be a little shaky

His guest spot on Curb Your Enthusiasm was one of the best performances in the entire show.

I enjoyed the one season of The Michael J. Fox Show, it did try to subvert some of the "handicapped" tropes you see on broadcast TV. I remember one of the credit runner scene where he's struggling to serve himself a large spoonful of peas at family dinner. After a while his wife, played by Betsy Brandt, finally says exasperatedly "Honey, could you have your personal victory another time? The rest of us are hungry!"

Yeah you gotta do it that way or you turn into a completely insane, bitter piece of shiat that no one likes, even you.  Everybody with bad news shiat goes through it - lucky ones make it out the other side of the depression and self-hate and can poke fun.  Shiat ain't easy.

I remember that too, but it was literally THE promotional clip they used to adverstise the show..   Admit it... you didn't actually watch a single episode.

I watched them when I could actually find them on the schedule. I liked his long-simmering feud with Bob Costas.

Your not farking kidding.

Going through life disabled has completely changed my personality and overall outlook on life. You start to hate yourself and "normal" people around you. I feel like the past year or so I been struggling to be the person I once was long ago, but that will never happen.

Yarr - that's the hardest part beyond the actual disability to genuinely come to terms with.  Took me a few years to dig out of the "Fark pain, fark this, fark everything it hurts fark all of you in particular" hole.  Well, at least now I can poke my head out of the pit now and again and see what's up, anyway.

Kudos to him for saying this.  Often when a minority group is represented if they aren't a "great person" there is much outrage.  I remember when Basic Instinct came out the LG group (I think that was what is was then) was pissed.  How dare they make a lesbian a sociopath?!?

When there are essentially zero portrayals of anyone like you, and one finally roles along once in a while, and hey look total psycho - I can see their point on it.

He did a very poignant role in Scrubs. It was pretty amazing actually.

He already played a jerk with severe, near disabling OCD on Scrubs

I've seen at least a hundred movies from that year with lesbians and Basic Instinct was the only one where a lesbian (or bi-sexual) was a killer.

Going bald is in no way comparable to Parkinson's. But the first thing I did was get ahead of it. Shaved my head to fuzz, made fun of myself before anyone else could, and lived with it. Even had many compliments, most of the them centered around Jason Statham. That was nice but yeah, I'm still bald.as all hell.

If I were truly disabled, the first thing I"d do is mock the hell out of it before some asshole like Trump has the chance. Own that sh*t.

Yeah - it's a good attitude to have - thing is it's a real farker to try to actually do when there's pain or major dysfunction involved.  It's not so much your attitude as trying to get used to maintaining it under severe and constant assault by pain or inability every 10 seconds.

/not throwing rocks btw - you aren't wrong at all
//just that even with the best of intentions, major argh or can't do shiat messes with you pretty badly
///sorta like trying to whistle past the graveyard, 'cept the graveyard's full of dudes tasing you every 2 steps
