What does Sickening mean?

‘Sickening’ is just another way to say ‘Awesome’

When someone or something is described as ‘Sickening’, it doesn’t mean they are causing discomfort or illness. In the world of slang, ‘Sickening’ actually means something totally opposite. It is used to highlight how amazing, awesome or cool a person or thing is.

Think of it as a twisted compliment, where something is so fantastic that it’s almost too much to handle, to the point of making you ‘sick’. This is where the term ‘Sickening’ finds its roots.

This slang term is a spin-off from another slang term ‘sick’, which is also used to describe something as cool or awesome. The term ‘sick’ is frequently used in sporting circles to denote something spectacularly good.

The use of ‘Sickening’ is particularly popular among teenagers and athletes. It’s a fun and edgy way to express admiration or approval of something or someone.
