  • New here- Introducing myself and share my story

    Hello, my name is Tia Mechele. I was officially diagnosed with IC back in OCT 2010- but have had symptoms/pain for the last 2 years.
    I must confess it has gotten the best of me here lately
    I have become very discouraged in which I believe is heading me towards depression
    Hoping and praying to find support here from people who "truly" understand.
    Looking forward to hearing from you guys!

    Hi! Glad you found this website. It was a life saver for me in the beginning. I don't know where you are in your treatment plan or anything, but it is possible to feel better & get your life back. I am proof of that. It is really tough in the beginning finding a good urologist, trying all different medicines, experimenting with the diet, researching IC, etc. I would be in a heap on the floor crying, in pain, no sleep, & overwhelmed. So I know exactly how you feel. But it WILL get better. Hang in there. The support leaders here, Jill's videos, the diet, & all the research on here is amazing. Start reading. LOL

      You aren't alone. I feel like it a lot of times because for others around us, our family, friends, people whom we don't even know, their life goes on normally. I haven't even been officially diagnosed yet, but I come here often for peace and support to keep me going.


      Current medication: Soul-searching

      Vitamin D and B, Green smoothies, infrared sauna use, walking, cleansing, still seeking doctors to help find THE CAUSE of this--autoimmune or infection.

        This is the best place for you to come to. No matter how wonderful your boyfriend, husband, mother, father, best friend, etc. is-we are the only ones who truly, truly understand how you feel because it is the same thing we feel. There is always someone here to help you. Diet helped me tremendously, but it doesn't happen over night. It takes a while to learn it and to have it improve your condition. So, most importantly, never give up!
