  • A Poem About My Ic Friends

    MY IC FRIENDS

    IC FRIENDS ARE PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND HOW WE FEEL.
    IC FRIENDS ARE PEOPLE WHO HELP US EVERYDAY LEARN TO COPE AND DEAL.

    IC FRIENDS ARE THERE WHEN OUR WORLD SEEMS SO LOST.
    IC FRIENDS ARE THERE NO MATTER WHAT THE COST.

    IC FRIENDS DONT CARE WHEN WE RANT, RAVE, AND SCREAM.
    IC FRIENDS UNDERSTAND BECAUSE THEY ARE PLAYING ON THE SAME TEAM.

    IC FRIENDS SHOW COMPASSION WHEN ALL WE CAN DO IS CRY.
    IC FRIENDS BELIEVE IN US WHEN ALL OTHERS THINK ALL THIS PAIN IS A LIE.

    IC FRIENDS STAND TOGETHER AND WILL NOT EVER GIVE IN.
    IC FRIENDS STAND STRONG AND WILL NOT EVER LET IC WIN!!!


    HUGS TO ALL YOU!!
    MY IC FRIENDS

            Ronda, I love the poem!

            I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
            1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
            2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
            I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

            I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

                    That's sweet, Leelee. Very nice poem. I'm glad you have an outlet in writing; you've had so much to cope with.
                    Je vous souhaite de la joie, de la bonne santée, et tout ce qu'il y a de bon dans la vie.
                    Wishing you happiness and good health, and all the best out of life.

                    Peace, Carolyn
