Today I was joined by Triple H's very own John Lee to hear a lived experience of dialysis, kidney failure and organ transplant.
John grew up not knowing there was anything wrong with his kidneys, he was simply told his constant bed wetting was something psychological that he needed to grow out with or 'deal with'.

A triple interview show today - Gus Worland, Professor Jane Pirkis and David Hollier - there is SO much in this show that has the potential to change peoples lives.
In ABC's series Man Up, Gus Worland asks why so many Aussie men are taking their own lives.
What he discovers is a debilitating pattern of men wearing masks to hide their feelings, championing stoicism, self-reliance, not sharing feelings nor expressing emotion.
Gus looks squarely in the face of these masks and gently encourages them to be removed. He leads the way by showing how to be a strong man who is sensitive, caring and unafraid to connect with people and how they are and wait for the answer. In short, he can see the importance of being a role model and walking the talk.
Mikey Nicholas and Pasquale Vartuli join the conversation at the end of Mens health week. We talk about why we should care with a quick look at some shocking statistics, stereotypes, expectations, menopause and much more!
Mens Health Week - MoMents in Time
How true - all those little moments add up to big moments, particularly if the little moments have not been ones that taught you how to deal with what you were feeling, the emotions that went unexpressed and unsupported. They can leave young men feeling vulnerable and unless we have learnt to see that vulnerability as a strength it can result in dangerous or unsociable behaviour that does them no favours whatsoever - as a young person or as an adult. Join me as I interview Dean Quirke a health and wellness educator.
