      I'm from the Warsaw IN area.

      I saw in the latest ICN email that there is a Ft Wayne support group starting up! The first meeting is Tuesday March 2nd, at Parkview. I am sooo planning on being there!

      (Me & my husband)

      IC- June '09- Elmiron, occasionally Urelle & Sanctura XR, also take joint supplement
      Vulvodynia- Aug '09- Elavil, Calcium Citrate & occasionally Lidocaine gel
      Semen Allergy- Nov '09- just preventive measures
      IBS- Jan '10- mild case, so just high soluble fiber diet
      Still have unidentified pain, possibly from PFD.

      Also migraines & hypertension.

      Follow IC diet when flaring, otherwise hasn't proven very helpful. Also follow some IBS diet guidelines.

      Exercise (2 miles walking per day, some yoga & mild kettlebells) and stress relief have also helped much!

          Yes, it was definitely a very good experience to actually MEET people who knew what this was like!

          Not to sound ignorant, but which person were you? I remember there being several newly diagnosed people, but I didn't have a chance to talk more because my husband & I had to drive home!

          Also, I saw photography listed as an interest & both my husband & I are photographers too!

            cem, I was the one that has been experiencing a few pain free days. I just started using Desert Harvest with great sucess. My name is Julia, I came in a little late and ended up sitting to the left of the other people from Warsaw that you stayed and spoke with. Are you on facebook? (if so PM me with your details and I'll look you up there.)

                              Likewise! I have never met anyone in person who has IC so I would like to try to make it to one of the meetings when I am not working or in class.
