A very powerful quote from this episode: “I thought I could ‘man up’ and beat depression… But now I know I’m never going to overcome this, but I know I can still live a good life with it, and maybe my story can help other people, and that’s what I think I’m here for.” Andy and Casey talk about our purpose and talk about what it’s like to have invisible illnesses, like depression and chronic pain.

Ep 54: Caregiving, Crohn’s, MRI’s, Grief, with Felicia Michaels

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in episodes

We are joined today by the absolutely wonderful and talented comedian, writer, and Director, Felicia Michaels, to talk about a condition that has plagued her family. We talk about her mother’s diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease in the 1970’s and how this greatly impacted her life from a young age. Felicia also shares her own personal journey with Crohn’s disease and the bizarre and terrifying pain that resulted in a surprising diagnosis. We get raw and real and we also laugh and smile and Felicia inspires us with her strength and tenacity. We also talk about our country’s healthcare and social welfare programs that were a great asset to Felicia’s life, especially in the midst of daunting and overwhelming responsibility as she found herself taking care of her mother as a child. We talk about the progress made in treating and understanding Crohn’s Disease and acknowledge that there is still a long way to go. We leave with some final words of wisdom and urge you to check out Felicia’s podcast with Jessica Wellington, The Liars Club. And keep an eye out for her films: My Hole Story, and Pervs. (links below)

THE CHECK-IN: Andy got an MRI of her heart and talks about the results and her love of hospital gowns. Joleen talks about the healing process and grief journey following the sudden death of her cousin.

MEMORABLE MOMENTS:

“Just ask me, I’ll tell you what’s wrong with me.”

“The worst thing is when you give a bunch of advice to a new comic and then you go on stage and eat it. So now I don’t give advice before my set.”

“Make friends with people who are funnier than you.”

“I would like to be the voice of positivity today.”

“I’d like to advocate for all the children who are taking care of a parent in this country.”

“Oh my god! My mom pees 30 times a day!”

“My kids caught me… licking the bread.”

“I have so much empathy for what people go through.”

“Take a screen capture of your tweet and put it on Instagram!”

“M&M’s, rainbows, and butterflies. M&M’s, rainbows, and butterflies.”
