  • So much going on

    Hi everyone,

    Yes, I'm still alive. I have gone back to work. I'm really happy about it, but there are days that it is really hard. Even though I'm in remission, the fatigue is the same as before. I love the independence of it. At times, I tend to forget that I am ill. I act like everyone else and then something will remind me.
    I am up to my eyeballs in wedding plans. It is exciting. We still have a year to go, but I know it will fly by really fast. My fiance has been with me through all the IC stuff and is just so compassionate and understanding with me. I am only working part-time, so the majority of the financial burden will be on him. He never complains, I swear I think he's a saint!!
    I am thankful everyday that my IC is in remission. The fibro is doing quite well. It isn't completely in remission like the IC, but it is pretty good most of the time. It seems to flare with bad weather, or if I overdo it. MY IBS is doing so much better than before. I was really sick there fo awhile. In and out of the hospital for months. I'm glad it's over for now.
    I still get scared wondering what if it comes back. Now that I have my life back again that thought is never far from my mind. It is a place that I know more that likely I will encounter somewhere in the future, but after all I've been through I think I will handle it better the second time around. I heard about Lesa's baby. She is sooo beautiful. I am elated for her!!!! I miss you all very much and I think it is time that I come home to my IC family. I went a little crazy there for awhile with my freedom from the IC, but it is time to get back in touch with all of you that helped me so much when I was first diagnosed.

    I hope to hear from you all soon,
    Laura xoxo

    {{{{{Laura}}}}}I am so glad to hear that things are going so well for you I think that all, or most of us, live in fear when we are in a remission....never knowing when 'it' will hit again. Just ride it out and enjoy every minute of it, k

    tons of hugs~
    Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".

      I'm glad to hear you've been doing better. I know that feeling of having some good days, and worrying about it getting bad again. Hang in there, and try to enjoy the good times.
