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.

Ever wonder what it's like to pee out of your belly button? Brian's mom never did until she was corralled through a Chinese CT scan factory and realized she may have Bladder Cancer. This week we speak to Marie, Brian's MOM! She's a foul mouthed cutie pie and although she was a bit nervous to speak openly this ended up being one of our favourite episodes of the year. From 16" catheters to cat buttholes, this episode gets weird.

You know what sucks? Cellulitis, Chronic Edema and Varicose Veins. Think about it... Constant swelling in your feet and legs. An inability to pump blood from your extremities. The need to wear cumbersome compression socks. But you know whats sucks even more? A priapism. So, things could always be worse. Our friend and member of PEI's Racoon Bandit, Fraser, pops by to talk about his struggles with Chronic Edema! Stay tuned to the very end to hear a full play through of the Racoon Bandit song, Twist In The Wind based off of the night Fraser, suffering from sepsis and a wild fever, almost flung himself out his apartment window.

Imagine you ate a meal but instead of the food doing what it normally would do (travel through the entire digestive system) it just became stuck within your non working esophagus. As if your body was trying to mimic an emperor penguin by storing food for your baby. Except when you inevitably regurgitate your food, there is no baby penguin to receive it... because your a human woman. This is Kelsey's life. She suffers from Achalasia.

Pour a glass of wine, turn the lights down low, light some vanilla scented candles, turn on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and stick a "vaginal dilator" into your hoo-haw. Sounds like an enjoyable night? Well for our guest Molly it is quite painful. Vaginismus is a physical/mental condition causing extremely tight vaginal tissue making it nearly impossible for any sort of vaginal penetration. An issue, to say the least.
