Herpe Halloween everyone! This week we get extra spooky. We aren't talking about spiders or goblins or ghouls. Instead we're talking about HERPES! The fella's are in Vancouver and sit down with their first West Coast guest Hannah, she has HSV1 & 2. The conversation is full of extra spooky. Stories of hijinks in the deep dark woods, waking up one day with sores on your lady bits, revealing to new partners you have the herps, and much more! Oh... spoiler alert! Herpes isn't nearly as scary as one might think. Tune in to find out why it hasn't ruined Hannah's life!
Today we found out that Andrew Henderson, past Sickboy guest has died. He was a fabulous human being who accepted death with grace and beauty. Andrew you have changed our lives. Thank you. May you be showered in Bambino and covered in feather boa's. RIP.
What do you do when nobody around you can hear the music you hear? How do you explain to your loved ones that you don't recognize yourself in the mirror? Who do you call when you hear scary voices coming out of the walls? Last week we dived into what it's like to care for a loved one with Schizophrenia. This week we sit down with Laura. She has Schizophrenia or as she likes to put it, madness. In this very raw conversation Laura opens up about her most horrifying hallucinations, the mourning of her identity before the madness set in and shares some of the art shes created through her recovery.
The title says it all... This week we do a little personal update for Bri-Guy. Turns out everyone's favourite lispy blonde cutie isn't a hypochondriac after all. He got (semi)tested and the results are in. ADHD positive. Will he lean into this diagnosis and use it as a crutch? Probably. Ugh... Also on a more serious note, Brians mom came down with a case of Cancer. We talk about the reaction of his friends and family and how he's handling it all!
This week on Sickboy: we sit down with CC, her Mom has Schizophrenia. We explore the challenges of living with someone who experiences extreme paranoia - like Xtreme paranoia... like imagine smoking up and the 5-0 roll up so you quickly ash the bud but like then you realize you're flying so high that the Po-po are actually just your buddy who just turned up with more Skunk. Yeah like that. Times a hundred. So seriously, tune into this episode... because it got us right in the feels.
This week on Sickboy, we sit down with Caleb. He's got ADHD. Brian thinks he also has it (big surprise), but is almost certainly wrong (as usual), Jeremie is really, really curious about adderall, and Taylor is astonished by how this episode itself is a real live example of what it's like to have ADHD
While Jeremie was visiting Montreal he met a young girl named Brittany. For almost half of her life Brittany never spoke a word. She suffered from a complex childhood anxiety disorder known as Selective Mutism. Jeremie and Britt explore the social challenges of growing up without a voice and the scary thought of hearing yourself speak for the first time. The two discuss first words and favourite words and Jer may or may not step over the line when it comes to "political correctness"... spoiler alert: of course he does....
