    I think we all need breaks now and then. You know that I am just a phone call away, and you bet I will be calling you everyday until I can scrap enough money together to make that 8 hour drive to your house. Take all the time you need, you are a big support and we will all miss you around here.

    Love ya and huggies,
    Mommy to 2 crazy, wonderful kids and wife to the most amazing man in the world!

      I totally understand about needing time for yourself. Its not something that I get very often. Unless of course its 2am and everyone else is sleeping. So do what you need to do. Take whatever time you need. Jess is right that we will miss you around here.

          I've had to do the same thing many times, Brat. Come back when you are ready. kissing

          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.

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

                Brat wanted me to tell you thanks for understanding. She's gonna be spending a lot of time with her daughter and hubby, and working on some hobbies, but will miss you all. She said she'll pop in from time to time and really thanks you all for understanding!

                  I agree, this PC can take over your life quickly. Since I have been down and sick I actually haven't missed being on here. Except for Im'ing one special friend who I am sure you can understand.

                          Thank-You for your understanding I still need time... My life is being run by IC an pain, It hurts to sit here. Our weather hasn't seen an above 18 and the wind chill factor hasn't gotten above 12 in weeks and it has killed my fibro and myofascial pain syndrom. so I am taking pain pills sleeping and hugging the almighty heating pad..
