  • Nobody with IC in Illinois?

    Hello World,

    I just received my IC diagnosis yesterday and have searched online for any support group in IL or even southern WI, but I can't find any. Is there anyone out there????

    Hello Karenina!

    I'm not a support group, but I live in Chicago and have IC.

    I just wanted to say hello. Hello!

      Hi Karenina,
      I don't know where you would find an IC support group other than Chicago. I believe there is one there. I found it a long time ago when I was checking out this site. I live in Aurora. I think the problem is that we are all scattered, and driving to one location would be tough for those of us who don't live close.

      When I am really down, I get on the message boards. It helps me to feel less isolated.

      Take care!
      Mary F. hi

        Karenina, I live in a small town in Illinois. No support group here. This wink site has become my support group. I have been diagnosed with ic for two years. There are people out here in illinois with ic. We just don't know each other. If you would like someone to talk to, email me at [email protected] luck and many painfree days.

            Greetings! I'm near the Peoria, IL area. I only know people with IC through this site. In fact, I don't think I've ever met anyone in person who had IC. It can be a challenge not to be bummed out my this illiness that's for sure, but the ic-network has always been a great help to me.

            Feel free to contact me anytime at:

                  hi karenina

                  i live in racine, wisconsin, and i am not aware of any southern wisconsin support groups. (and i'm not ambitious enough or in pain enough to start one myself).

                  if you hear of any new groups, please post them!
