  • Aug was my five yr anniversary

    I celebrated with a moment of silences followed by Aime and I speaking to fellow Na group .
    my husband and daughter and parents and one of my doctors were there.
    my preacher too.
    It was great.
    I told them if my forty bithday is half as good as my NA birthday I be lucky.
    Tuesday I will be forty.

    How is every one.
    Aime lives in a trailer now two miles from me.
    she said she hated her old place and was glad to have friends an a adopted sister close by.

    Life is what you Make It .By being kind to every one and all creatures your life will be more pleasant. Live your life for GOD and if it were the last day you were alive becausse it maybe.

    Congratulations!!!! Thank you for letting us share it with you.

    Diagnosed August 2001

    Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)

    Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

    I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.


    “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl

    “You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” ~ Brian Tracy

        It always brings tears to my eyes when someone can tack on another year....."normal" people don't know how HUGE this is. My family has not acknowledged one and I've had 16. You are truly blessed with the family you have.

        We have been with you thru so many of you bad times, I'm honored to share this miracle with you~
        Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".
