Welcome to I have IC (Interstitial Cystitis). This is my first post, and is just a general hello. I am going to be adding posts from my journal that I have been keeping ever since I was diagnosed with IC. Also, I will be adding information about surgeries, treatments, and new things happening in the IC community. Hope you get a lot of information from this site and will leave plenty of comments and introduce yourselves! A lot of my posts are from the past, since I am taking them out of my journal. I started a “condition journal” in November of 2007. So that will be the start of the posts, I will also post a new (daily) post as to what is going on now, hopefully everyday. Enjoy!


P.S.- Please read the About page before you continue. Also, this is a work in progress so bear with me while I update. There will be new updates daily!

    This site was started by my daughter Cathy. She has been through so much in the past few years, I’m sure her words don’t adequately describe the pain and suffering she has experienced. To the parents of children that have IC, be as supportive and love them as much as possible. Above all, pray! The pain is real. The emotional, physical and mental effect it has on your child is heartbreaking for you to watch and experience. Don’t ever give up hope. Great job Cathy! I love you!

    Cathy I had no clue about any of this. Your words have inspired me to research this myself. I have had some health issues my self but none to this degree, but now that I am researching I am wondering if any of my issues are related at all, I am going to question my doctor about this. I will pray for you and hope that things are getting better for you. I pray that you find some relief soon. Email me at tasha.bullock@gmail.com when you get some time, I would like to ask you some questions.

    Thank you Tasha for visiting my page. I still have a lot of work to do. But it means a lot to me that you wrote on here and became a member!!! Thank you for your support, and I will be in touch very soon. I’ve missed talking to you all these years that have gone by!

    I think it is wonderful that your mom supports you. I had zero support network and it was horrific. Some people just refuse to educate themselves about this disease.

    I read your story on your website. And my heart ached when I read it. I hope that you have some support now. If you ever need to talk you can always e-mail me. My e-mail is Catwoman100780@yahoo.com. I have been lucky to have my family here to support me. The only bad thing is that we have to watch them go through so much pain while we suffer with this condition. I hate to see my family like that, it kind of makes it hard to watch. But we do need people to help us get through. I am so sorry you didn’t have that. It breaks my heart. But I’ll be here for you. E-mail me whenever you want to talk. I hope you are doing well today.
