  • Pear Martini

    Not to condone drinking on a bad bladder, but if you just need a night off and you aren't majorly flaring, the pear vodka out there is pretty awesome.

    Peel and slice 1 pear (any kind).

    Throw into food processor and blend.

    Mix Ice, Sprite/7-Up/Soda Water and Pear Vodka to proper proportions (I realize this varies from person to person) into glass.

    Add two tablespoons of the pear puree.

    Stir and enjoy!

    Dx 2007 while in the Navy. Medical (honorable) discharge.
    Interstim 2008. Emergency removal of Interstim 2010 which nearly paralyzed me from the waist down.
    When I was first dx, I was literally on a shoebox full of meds. Now I am down to diet management, yoga, meditation, and only during flares Tramadol. Still go to ER on occasion for flares however due to the intense spasms my bladder does. Looking into Botox for said issue.

    My IC took my first marriage within a year. But I am remarried, with a step daughter, and doing fan-tab-u-lous! You can get there, ladies!!


    Consistently looking for ways to be proactive about a situation.
    My healing must start with my thoughts.
