  • Anyone in Alabama

    I live in a small town called Roanoke, it's close to Auburn. I would love to chat with anyone in this area or in Alabama for that matter. I was diagnosed with IC 5 years ago and it has been a struggle ever since. I have 2 children, a son who is 4 and a daughter who is 2. I can tell you that the only time I have been in remission is when I was pregnant with my children. I do not know if the pressure of carrying 2 10 pound 4 ounce children helped or harmed, because I have suffered ever since. I have tried Elmiron (made me sick in other ways, I have had 2 instillations (helped for a month) I have been on Elavil (could not function) I presently take Cystospaz and it helps unless I am in a really bad flare. I can sometimes take antihistamines, but right now I am trying a strict diet and just trying to fake it with my family because they tend to get frustrated at me, telling me to get tough and get on with my life. So I could really use somebody to talk to, even someone in Georgia, I am not 25 miles from the LaGrange, Georgia line.

    One hundred years from now,It will not matter what kind of car I drove,What kind of house I lived in,How much was in my bank account,Nor what my clothes looked like.
    But the world may be a little bit better because I was important in the life of a child.
