  • Quad Riding with IC..

    So today was my first real day riding a quad with my bf. We just got a quad about 2 weeks ago.. and we had taken it out once before but being the first time I had ever been on it I was scared to death to go fast or over any bumps.. Well today I desided to put all fear behind me and have fun.. Knowing FULL WELL that my bladder had again been kicking my butt.. See for about 2 months now my bladder has come out of the short term remission that it was in and is now causing me problems..
    I just moved to NV in Dec. and have not seen a URO since then.. found out that was a very bad idea..but finally found a uro in Reno (1 1/2 hrs away) from where I live...
    But like I said today was the first time I had gotten to go out with my bf and his family to go quad riding..not thinking that when I got there and actually started having fun that I would just set aside the pain and figuring I would be ok.. Guess what.... I'm not... I hurt so bad... I just want to cry... .. i should have known better... but who doesnt want to just go and have fun and forget their pains and troubles..
    So here I am again.. in so much pain I just want to curl up and cry..
    Anyhow.. hope everyone is having a good day.. and hugs to everyone!!!

    With all the pain in the world comes love and hope.. For someday they will find the cures for all the pain we suffer and just take it all away and we can again be pain free and enjoy life.. and remember those who suffer the same pains and sorrows are usually the ones with the most understanding hearts
    Hugs and Loves

    Aww sweetheart I;m sorry your not feeling well. I do that sometime, Put away the thoughts of hurting and just try to enjoy yourself. But its not always a good idea. I will be praying for you and I hope you get some relief soon. Try relaxing with the heating pad.


    Dance like no one is watching
    Love like you've never been hurt
    Live today like it's your last

        My husband and I have a quad also and Love to go riding. I know what you mean though, sometimes after, I just suffer, but I'm not willing to give it up too! My husband just goes very slow and takes it as easy as possible over the bumps. I also put a pillow under my butt and leg and that seems to help, have you tried that? I love riding, and I hope you can continue to enjoy it also..


        I'm 47 years old, married 27 years. I have two wonderful boys and two wonderful grandchildren. I was diagnosed in 1994. Life has certainly thrown me many many surprises, all of which I'm trying to stay positive and hopeful, and I try to think about my blessings not my misfortunes, when possible. Stay Strong!
