      Hi Debbie!
      Another Canuck... yay! I was hoping to find some Canadians... for some reason it just makes me feel less alone in this.
      I am in Ontario... currently living in Toronto! So we are very close.
      Very nice to meet you

            thanks everyone for posting back...
            I was really hoping to meet some girls from the area, to hopefully meet up and talk to in person... maybe to ease some of my fear!

              Hi JubeJube,

              Welcome to the IC forums. Yes there's allot of Canadians on the site.

              Like yourself, I also live in Toronto. There's quite a few people in Toronto who have IC. Not sure on the exact numbers.

              Everyone's really nice and very helpful. How long have you had IC?

              I've had IC since 2002. I'm doing really well now. Almost to the point where it's gone. I've learned to control it through non traditional methods. I'm not any meds whatsoever. It took allot of time, but was worth it.

              First thing is not to be afraid of your IC. It can play on your mind and that will affect the way you feel each day. You have to change your way of thinking. It's not easy. Everyone has a different level of pain, so for some it's harder to accept that they have IC.

              I hope your feeling better soon!

                Um, I'm going through toronto real soon but i won't have much time at all (like maybe just 15-30min). I will be in the pre-board area of Gate 10 at union station about 11am ish June 28th (5' feet small framed white girl with red suitcase). I will be pre-boarding for a train leaving at noon so like i said, maybe a quick hello. I go through toronto several times a year but this trip is particularly crazy. I'll find out soon- there might be a possibility of meeting up for a couple hours on June 5th afternoon. My bus leaves at 5pm so again, not good if you're working.

                *Hey friends- I'm going camping in Killarney this weekend. I've only been camping in a tent twice in my life but it wasn't in the north. It's supposed to be cold and i don't think the berries are ready yet (for the bears to feed on). Wish me luck- i really don't want a bear encounter and apparently there are quite a few in this area. Most of all, i hope my bladder behaves- wandering in the dark night by myself to find a port-a-potty doesn't sound like fun.

                  Hi, I'm from Montreal, Quebec. I don't know anyone here with IC, but I know that there are quite a few ic patients here since it's a big city. It does feel good to know you're not alone suffering with ic and would like to extend my greetings to all Canadians on this board.

                    marsi4 to the Canadian Chat board !!!

                    Yes , there are lots of people from the Quebec area with IC ,we had a lot on the Canada IC message board but we know longer have this message board so I was hoping others would come and post on the IC-network message board ..

                    I go to Montreal a lot as my husband is from Quebec and his sister all live in Montreal and parent outside of Montreal..

                    I am glad you posted on the Canada chat !!

                            I'm from Nova Scotia. I was diagnosed with IC in 2003 and unfortunately I am in a major flare right now. I don't know anyone else that has IC so I'm glad that this chat area exists. It's comforting to know that I am not alone!
