    So this really happened to me this past weekend

    I was babysitting a 2 1/2 year old girl, so sweet, with my fiance. We took her to the children's museum. I asked if she needed to go to the potty (mostly because I really had to) and she said yes. So I let her go first, and I clapped my hands and said "good job!". Well, when it was my turn, (took me a while because I've been having problems going), she kept asking if I was pooping, I said no, I'm trying to pee. She waited a little bit, and then asked me if it hurt (Aww!!) and I replied that it does sometimes. Finally I went and she yelled, "YEY!!!!! PEE!!!!!" So loud that my fiance heard it outside of the bathroom. I walked out and he was just laughing

    I believe we all just need a cheerleader sometimes

    Unfortunately for this story I ended up going to the ER the next day and getting a cath because I couldn't go for 6 hours..yikes! And let me tell you the dr kept thinking I was starving myself and not drinking water. My mother and I had to yell at him realize that I had IC, not sure he believed in it either. Finally he said that my meds were interacting badly. Not sure If thats the case but I see a specialst in a couple weeks at least!

    Anyhow, I just love this story, and thought you all could hopefully get a smile out of it.

    Wow, thats great. I love little kids, theyre innocence is so sweet. The closest thing that I've had to that is when I have major flares, my cat will follow me into the bathroom. She has turned it into a game. She times it out so she can jump over the toilet paper as I start to unroll it, and swipe at my hand as I go to wipe. Somehow despite the pain, she still cracks me up.

    Give the little girl a big hug from me. She sounds SO cute.

      my cat walks in with me too! He wants me to turn on the water for him, and when hes done he curls up on the rug and then sometimes plays with my feet, its nice to have cats who are so sweet

        That is too cute! My son Griffin is two and a half and he doesn't cheer me on but he is always saying "Mommy pee yellow" because of the AZO. I think that's pretty funny, lol

        I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
        1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
        2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
        I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

        I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)
