19. I pooped in my car! With Alicia Aiello

19. I pooped in my car! With Alicia Aiello

September 18, 2019

Alicia Aiello stops by to discuss all things IBD’s stomas, surgeries and POOP! We clear up the myths around IBDs, sex, pregnancy, dating and periods - it’s not an interview for the faint hearted! We also discuss her best advice for coping with constant IBD surgeries, the real risks of taking short term steroids (ever heard of bone death?!) and the glorious retreats held by the fabulous Girls With Guts. 

 

Alicia is president of ‘Girls With Guts’ which is an organisation which helps women become empowered, knowledgeable and their own advocate for their healthcare. They recognise that women in particular have a more difficult time with IBDs because of all that added biology and social pressure. They do a great job of supporting women with IBDs with their retreats, butt baskets and ‘gotta go’ cards. Make sure to check out their website if you have an IBD.  

 

If you’re watching on YouTube you may also see a special kitty guest!

18. People’s Strictly Come Dancing Star Trishna Bharadia: ‘I was left in what felt like a black hole with no information’

18. People’s Strictly Come Dancing Star Trishna Bharadia: ‘I was left in what felt like a black hole with no information’

September 11, 2019

Were you given enough information when you were diagnosed? 

Trishna describes the moment she was diagnosed as like being left to fend for herself in a black hole. From here she decided to take matters into her own hands and start writing for various charities, magazines and blogs. In particular, she writes for the Asian MS community in which there is a lot of stigma to break through. Soon, she was being invited to speak at events all over the world. 

 

She somehow does all of this while also working full time as a translator and analyst, doing regular zumba dance classes and appearing on TV shows like the People’s Strictly Come Dancing. How she fits all this in on top of having MS - I have no idea! Thankfully she does and thank goodness she does because she’s changing the lives of so many people.  

 

Hear patient advocate and inspirational speaker Trishna Bharadia talk about everything from the problems in our health care industry to what it was like to be on the People’s Strictly Come Dancing.  

 

If you’re watching on YouTube you may recognise Trishna? Catch Trishna’s sister Anisha on an earlier episode of the DISabled to ENabled podcast.

17. I was in a constant state of adrenaline, my pulse was 181 per minute! - Faith Abbott/Ashenden

17. I was in a constant state of adrenaline, my pulse was 181 per minute! - Faith Abbott/Ashenden

September 4, 2019

What would you do if you were constantly in a state of high adrenaline from doing nothing? How is it currently treated? Can it be treated in a different way? What is Graves disease? 

 

Faith found herself in a struggle during college when she suddenly lost a crazy amount of weight for no reason, had crazy adrenaline rushes all through the day leaving her unable to sleep. Being in a constant state of stress is so damaging to the body.

 

The medication she was put on by doctors - radioactive iodine - which was designed to kill her thyroid also in the process gave her cystic acne and made her more susceptible to mould poisoning. But could there have been a better way to treat it? She found that after taking her care into her own hands and looking after her body from a natural point of view she became a lot better and her condition became manageable. 

 

Her cystic acne on her face soon cleared up after she experimented with cutting out dairy. Not once was this suggested by her dermatologist who kept pushing pharmaceuticals on her. Are pharmaceutical companies helping or hindering our overall health? 

 

We talk about the problems in our health care industry and also our education system after she was put on Adderall throughout her childhood. It raises the question: Should children take amphetamines like Adderall and Ridilin? Is it just a ploy for schools to get better grades?

After suffering a mini stroke at just 14 years old, life hasn’t quite been the same since for blogger Sheryl Chan. Now living with 5 chronic conditions everyday is a different mix of symptoms. Who knows what she’ll wake up with tomorrow? That however, doesn’t stop her from writing her awesome and inspiring blog, ‘ Chronic Voice’ where she talks about everyday life with so many challenges, how she overcomes them and how she inspires others to live with their own chronic conditions. Sheryl Shows us that anything is possible if you set your mind to it.

She once had a taxi driver tell her a quote she’s never forgotten: ‘You can die in Singapore, but you can’t get sick - it’s too expensive’. We discuss the crazy laws around health and disability in Singapore and how she manages it with all of her life saving medications. What emotional impact does that have on a chronically ill person? Listen to her interview to find out.
