      Awesome! 12 Step programs saved my life and my sanity!!!

      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

        grouphug grouphug grouphug Awesome, way to go.Just one thing, you can take pain meds as prescribed if you are in pain. I am praying for you. I have been in oa and alanon and aa. I still like the 12 steps but don't have the energy or time to go anymore with the ic and working full time. I trust my higher power whom I chose to call God. You are doing good.
        Hang in there , There is hope.
        There is hope. Prayer works.

        Love, Debbie
