I'd like to introduce you to Inside Out by Amber. It's where I have the pleasure of uncovering life when something like q chronic illness is thrown into the mix with a variety of guests. As someone with experience of living with chronic, invisible illness and a permanent stoma, as if living some of these things isn't stigmatised enough at times, many topic areas and questions to do with normal daily living are often unspoken of or, difficult to resonate with sometimes making things feel even more confusing, overwhelming and isolating. Not just for those of us going through whatever it may be but, for those around us too. Everybody, should feel empowered, included and represented through the information and sources available to them. So, throughout this podcast, I get to delve into some really interesting topic areas to do with life when something like a stoma, bowel condition or, wider disability / illness are thrown into the mix through having conversations with some pretty fascinating people; from patients, to partners and athletes to healthcare professionals - I can't wait to share them with you! Whether you're a patient, a loved one or simply here to learn and find out more, I'd like to welcome you to this podcast as a little safe space where you're all invited. As the saying goes, there really is no such thing as a stupid question and in fact here, no question, thought or topic is off limits. I hope the podcast brings you a little bit of joy, insight or helps in some way shape or form whether thats by answering an unmet question or by helping you feel less alone.

    Inside Out with Poppy; Chronic Illness & Surgery - A Younger Sibling's Perspective

    Inside Out with Poppy; Chronic Illness & Surgery - A Younger Sibling's Perspective

    Every week I am joined by a special guest, but this week I am proud to welcome a particularly special guest... My younger sibling, Poppy.

    If you or a loved one has a chronic illness, bowel disease and / or undergone surgery, you'll know all too well that it doesn't only affect the sufferer but, it impacts everyone around them in one way or another too.

    Poppy, is nine years younger than me and has therefore only ever known life with me unwell. Poppy really wanted to get involved with the podcast so, I thought it would be great to chat to her and share her perspective of growing up as a sibling of someone with IBD and a stoma. In this episode, Poppy and I discuss a number of things including what she thinks the best and worst things are about having a sibling who lives with an illness and a stoma as well as any possible advice she has for other siblings or family members.

    We hope that we can help other siblings and family members who may also have a loved one who is managing chronic illness or undergoing surgery.

    Inside Out with James Conlon; Activism, Body Image, Mental Health & Dating

    Inside Out with James Conlon; Activism, Body Image, Mental Health & Dating

    In this episode, I chat to James Conlon about his experiences of living with Ulcerative Colitis, particularly focusing on topics of advocacy, body image, mental health and dating. Topics that needless to say, are pretty prominent to many of us regardless of our age, gender or diagnosis. I was really interested in chatting to James about these things from a male’s perspective and I’m proud to share this very raw and honest conversation with James.

    **If these are topics that you feel might be unsettling for you to listen to at this moment in time then I suggest that perhaps you skip this episode and come back to it at another point. Also, I'd just like to reiterate that each individuals experiences are different but, I hope that you can learn, relate to or find comfort in James'.
