  • Need Information FAST


    I am a writer for a magazine. I'm writing on a tight deadline (Feb. 14), and am interested in speaking with anyone who has had any digestive health problems (mouth, throat, stomach, pancreas, bowels, liver, etc.) as a result of alcohol use.

    Please respond or e-mail me at [email protected] I can call you to talk, or we can e-mail. You may remain anonymous in the article.

    I haven't. I had gastroenteritis WHILE drinking, but it wasn't permanent.

    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
