    Hi Cheryl,
    You didn't mention what treatment you are trying. There are many options now and hopefully one will give you some relief.

    I live in the Fort Worth area but I think I have seen some on here from your area. There might also be a support group in your area. They list the support groups somewhere here on the site, I am just not sure where. Hang around here, we are always here to talk to and maybe someone closer to your area will also reply.

        Hi Cab,

        I live in Round Rock and was just diagnosed a couple weeks ago. There is a support group down in Austin off of Red River led by doctor James Reeves. My urologist suggested I go and maybe start seeing him instead, since he is more into the IC treament thing.

        I haven't been to the support group yet, but I think I'll check out the next one.

            Just want to mention that I also live in Austin. I was diagnosed in December and am adjusting to this cruel new world of I.C. I went to the IC meeting in January (on Red River) and will probably go to the next one on Feb 9 at 6:30.
