I have been holding on to this story for a while and luckily just found it again. It is too funny and yet, sad. Michaele Salahi was kicked out of Celebrity Rehab because she did not have a reason to be there! How lame is that? She says she thought she was there for her multiple sclerosis treatment (from an addictionologist?) but they said no. Hmmm. Let me throw a word in about MS. It is a terrible disease. I have seen patients crippled by it. On the other hand, there is no ONE pathognomonic test to prove patients really have it. After finding a questionable spot on their brain MRI, I have seen a few physicians (not a misprint) over the years embellish their symptoms, which were vague to start with, and go on disability with this diagnosis. Unfortunately, Salahi reminds me of them but I think she has so much more pathology. Anyone have another diagnosis they want to give her? Heck, make a new one up if you want to. Free subscription to the digital Placebo Journal for the best one.
