Betty, Jonathan Ross’s daughter, is currently confined to a wheelchair due to a chronic condition.
Jonathan Ross, 62, presented an update on his 31-year-old daughter Betty’s condition. POTS syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia are all symptoms of the host’s daughter.
Jonathan and his 52-year-old wife Jane Goldman have three children together: Betty, Harvey, and Honey.
On Loose Women, the talk show host discussed how his oldest child is doing after having treatment.
He remarked that it had been a “tough couple of years” since Betty’s fibromyalgia diagnosis.
Fibromyalgia is defined as “a persistent illness that causes pain throughout the body,” according to the NHS.
Jonathan went on to talk about his daughter’s sadness and the electric wheelchair she is currently using.
“She has fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and POTS syndrome, which is where your heart rate rockets up,” he told the Loose Women panelists Kaye Adams, Frankie Bridge, Dame Kelly Holmes, and Denise Welch.
“She still can’t walk very far,” he said of Betty’s illness and how it has affected the family.
“In the summer, we bought her an electric wheelchair so that we could at least go on walks with the dogs, and that has really helped to improve her spirits.”
“Because, you know, if somebody out there knows or has a loved one with a long-term illness, it’s depression,” the speaker explained.
“Being restricted indoors and unable to participate in activities since even stairs are tough for her.”
“As a result, if we’re going somewhere, we should give her plenty of time to ready, walk downstairs, and then take a break before continuing.”
Despite the fact that it has an impact, the good news is that she is definitely improving and feeling better about herself. As a result, we are overjoyed and relieved.”
Jonathan, on the other hand, continued by providing some hopeful information about Betty’s condition therapy.
“We found a decent… The Perrin therapy does exist,” he explained.
“I can’t simply advise her, ‘Try this, try that.’ If she believes it is bad in some way and refuses to give it her all, it is plainly not worth trying.”
“But she has clearly improved since we began receiving treatment.”
Jonathan confessed that he was a lousy parent when Kaye noted that parents frequently “want to repair” their kids, saying, “Even if my wife tells me something’s wrong in her day, I have to try to remember myself that sometimes I simply need to listen.
Because whenever she tells me something, I instantly respond, “Well, I’ll call this man and do this,” to which she responds, “Okay, I don’t… I just wanted you to know that I had a terrible day.”
“I have to remind myself all the time that sometimes all she needs from a partner is someone to listen to her and share her feelings. It’s a learning process,” he explained.
