Sickboy

Join hosts Jeremie, Brian, and Taylor as they hangout and have an unapologetic, unpolished and unfiltered discussion about what it's like to live life with a disease, in the hopes of finding humour in an otherwise taboo and sometimes dark subject.

This conversation is straight up bananas. Aaron is a rare breed. One of the rarest. One of only two Canadians who live with XLP syndrome. A rare and scary disease that can end Aarons life in the blink of an eye. We learn that mono is a herpe. BMT is not a tasty sandwich. The oldest person who has ever lived with XLP made it to 42. Genetics are bonkers. Get ready to have your mind blown wide open.

In light of some feedback from the medical professional community regarding our latest episode Taylor and Jeremie sit down to discuss Chronic Lyme Disease and how it is viewed in the world of science and medicine. 

Big thank you to everyone who has contributed to the conversation! This is what this podcast is all about!

*Trigger Warning* This week we tip toe into some very sensitive and challenging subject matter. Wade lives with PTSD which stems from childhood abuse/trauma. What does one do to climb such a seemingly insurmountable obstacle in life? Athletics, yoga, therapy and simply finding people to hold space. "S'Wade" gets hella vulnerable with us, and made for a special and thought provoking episode.
