No Colon Still Rollin'

New challenges always arise. When I was young my problems were from things like obstructions. You try to tell a 10 year old not to eat the piles of pineapple in the buffet at Mandarin. Even when my gut was backed up in a bathroom in the middle of Pennsylvania, I still thought it was worth it.

Grief

October 20th 2016. A whole bunch of things happened.


Snoop Dogg’s 45th birthday. Bruno the Lab was was found after surviving a month at the bottom of a well in Saskatchewan. Trump and Hillary had their final childish presidential debate. A naked man broke into a home in Vancouver to cook eggs. Cleveland advanced to the World Series after defeating the Jays. My cousin and best friend, Alicia Hayman, died due to a drug addiction.

Two Days Away From Death: Addison's Disease

Then he asked me about my libido and sex life. I shrugged. He told me if I feel like those “feelings” are low that I could go on a dosage of androgens, but some side effects include developing a deeper voice and probably growing a beard. Excuse me? Beard?!

The Many Reactions To My Sexual Assault

There are many reactions you receive when you tell someone you’re a survivor of sexual assault but the most common are pity and doubt.

Conquering Cancer With A Skateboard

The new stat is that in our lifetime 1 in 2 men will develop cancer and of those men 50% will die. For women it's 1 in 3 will develop and 1 in 5 will die. I don't share these statistics to be morbid, but to show you that you're not alone if you're going through this struggle.

The Hangover That Never Ends

Hi! I’m Kate and I have chronic migraines. I always feel like such a drama queen when I describe my migraines, which is why I don’t usually tell people what they’re like. It’s hard to explain feeling like you’re dying, but also knowing you’ll be okay and just have to endure it. I also don’t want anyone to feel bad for me, or pity me.

Much Like Lady Gaga - I Was Born This Way

When I first started listening to Sickboy I never considered myself a candidate for a contributor. After all I wasn't sick, I've just got some fun facial scaring. But it quickly became apparent that sickboy wasn't for the morbid curiosity of hearing about sickness. It is a series of conversations about difference in the human experience. I'm glad I got to share mine.

Sleeping With Demons - Severe Sleep Paralysis

You notice the figure, which was standing quietly in the corner, slowly start making its way towards you. You are helpless. As it gets closer, you can see it is faceless, and you have a sick feeling that it’s going to kill you. Your mind is racing, circling a feeling of pure fear.

She's Nubs

I was born in Montreal and immediately put up for adoption when my biological parents saw that I was born without hands and part of my legs, but I have never let any of this stop me.
