  • Some things to ponder.....

    1 · I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

    2 · There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead.

    3 · Life is sexually transmitted.

    4 · Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

    5 · The differences between a rut and a grave is the length and depth.

    6 · Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

    7 · Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.

    8 · All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

    9 · In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

    10 · How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

    11 · Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll squeeze these dangly things and drink whatever comes out?'

    12 · If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

    13 · Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?

    14 · Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster?

    15 · Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
    Stay safe

      They would have been an interesting person to have around don't you think?

      Thanks Donna, I enjoyed reading these!

        Thank you Donna

        I really needed a giggle this morning (still with the flare) and this was just the Rx!!!
        Katie-46 yr old female dx'd with IC after 15 years of symptoms off and on long term antibiotic use, GERD,IBS and now IC diet, gallbladder removed, endometrial ablation w/tubes tied
        Lexapro-20 mg
        Ambien-as needed
        Percocet-7.5 up to 3 per day as needed
        Valium-10 mg x2 per day
        Phenergan-1 at night
        Prelief w/everything

        Currents treatments that help somewhat:
        Heating pad
        Hot baths
        Being VERY still while lying down with legs elevated

            OMG that's hilarious! I love it!
            Update! Feeling much better these days and no longer on any meds!

            Pelvic pain began July 2008. Urinary frequency began in November of 2008. IC Doctor says I'm one of the worst frequency patients he has had.

            Things that helped me the most: IC Diet, Elavil (30mg), Elmiron since June '09 (500mg/day).

            Previously tried and quit: one series of six instillations, Neurontin, Ditropan, Oxytrol, electric stimulation to the pelvic floor, Desert Harvest Aloe, Cystoprotek and Flomax, Hydroxyzine (50mg), Alesse Birth control (this helped my period flares when my symptoms used to be bad), PTNS (I think this helped).
