  • Seniors think fast

    A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

    Amazing," he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal even more.
    Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw the highway patrol behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.

    He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this," and pulled over to await the Trooper's arrival.

    Pulling in behind him, the Trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."

    Th e old gentleman paused. Then said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a
    Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."

    "Have a good day, Sir," replied the Trooper.

      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!)

              That's great!
              **I could have my long list of current medications and diagnoses and the other medications that I've tried, but I'm going to focus on something more: words that inspire and motivate me to keep my head up and keep fighting.**

              "The honorary duty of a human being is to love."
              "The main thing in one's own private world is to try to laugh as much as you cry."
              "If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded. "
              "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain. "
