Dizzycast! Dizzy on a search…

Me and Dizzy are venturing into the land of podcasts (this could be something we do once and never speak of again…) but for now we’re feeling exciting!


We’ve been busy planning away and now we’ve got our episodes planned out we’re on the search for people who would love to join us and take part in our episodes. This can either be as aΒ one off appearance orΒ a more regular occurrence (depending on how long you can put up with me and Dizzy for). πŸ™‚


Our podcast is based on MS and chronic illness but we’re super happy to hear any ideas. So if you fit into one of the following and would like to take part please leave us a comment or email us at dizzythedonkey@gmail.com

  • Guest interview – about your life and experience with chronic illness
  • Guest interview – an aspect, experience orΒ topic based around chronic illness
  • Group Discussions – First one will be on fatigue but any topic ideas please get in touch or if you would like to takeΒ part in future ones.Β πŸ™‚
  • Any topics you think could benefit people. Even if you don’t have a chronic illness but are super knowledgeable on something like relaxation techniques or yummy cooking we’d love to hear from you
  • Just any happy/inspirational stories you’d like to share. πŸ™‚

    I think this is a terrific idea. I do not have a chronic illness but have survived colorectal cancer and now live happily with a permanent colostomy. I also have Systemic Scleroderma which has been in remission almost completely since a year after the cancer surgery 18 years ago. SSc is a horrible autoimmune disease that affects the skin, stomach and can affect lungs heart and kidneys. My remission is apparently extremely unusual.( literally only a handful of people in the world have had a remission like this and they had stem cell therapy which I did not) SSc is an autoimmune disease in the same sort of family as lupus or rheumatoid Arthritis. It affects the collagen in the body and causes scarring. I hesitate t o say I would speak about it because they do not know why I have had this remission. They are hoping they will find a way to test me but so far they do not know what to test for. I don’t want to get people’s hopes up when they don’t have an answer yet. Anyway I’d be happy to do something if you would like me to on surviving cancer or living with an ostomy.

      That would be lovely to have you involved Anne. Your story with Systemic Scleroderma is amazing but I understand not wanting to give people false hope. I’m so glad it went into remission with you. Something on your surviving cancer and riding again would be really nice if that’s something you would be happy to talk about. I would love to have positive/hopeful stories included. πŸ™‚ xxx

    I am not sure if I would qualify, but I have a congenital condition (medullary sponge kidneys), which means I have chronic kidney stones (EVERY SINGLE DAY), that will NEVER go away. I have had 4 lithotripsies since February and am constantly passing sand/gravel. There is no cure, I just have had to learn how to manage it and the pain that often accompanies it.

    I’m happy to be involved if anything I do with interiors and design and disability is of interest? Also I’m sure my husband would like to be involved from the PPMS perspective – it’s almost a different condition. Good luck, great idea.

    I’m so excited for this, it sounds like an amazing idea! I don’t have a chronic illness but if you count it I would be happy to talk about mental illness and how that can have physical effects as well XX

      Thank you! Just hope it turns out ok. πŸ™‚ I’ll definitely keep you in mind for future episodes (after the first couple focusing on chronic illness) as mental health is so important. Would be great to have you involved. πŸ™‚ xxx
