    Kim,

    Don't be too hard on yourself. I "went" alot for three years, but I didn't know anything about IC. It wasn't until I got PAIN that I went to the doc and paid attention. Before I actually had pain, I doubt I would have changed my habits.

    You're human. Don't we try to get away with as much as we can?!!!

    How in the world did you get yourself convinced to start the IC Diet? I have been telling myself for the past 3 years (dx 2004) to do the IC Diet, BUT I just can't get started on it. You will find that I have mentioned starting the IC Diet a lot on these posts, I just can't get myself to do it. Like anything else, I CAN'T get myself to do it. Even though I know I "go" alot when I drink certain things (coffee, pop, tea) I just can't get myself to give it up.

    Good Luck!

    HI Scraig, Glad the IC diet is working. I'm sure the pizza (tomato sauce and spices) and Coke (caffeine, carbonation and who knows what!) was really doing a number on your bladder! I'll bet with a few more days of being on the diet you'll see a big difference! Let us know how you are doing! Best wishes! Roxie

    Greasy foods isn't really the biggest problem... The biggest flare triggers are acidic foods like (oranges, tomatoes etc.), caffeine, and spicy foods.

    Good for you though, that you've taken the first step towards better health.

    Started the IC diet today...

    OK, so after having a horrible time yesterday with pizza and coke I decided to try an IC diet type thing. I have illiminated greasy foods and any drink thats not water for now. So far today has been good! Slight retention still and very very mild cramping... much better than I have been doing in a week! I don't know if luck would have it that antibiotics have decided to kick in on the exact day I gave in to this idea, but either way, I feel much better right now.

    Hopefully I have not spoken too soon!
