    Hi Everyone!
    I am new to the Interstitial Cystitis websites! It's really nice to know that there are people with the same thing as me
    I am 15 years old, and have been diagnosed for 2 years, but I've had it since I was little. I went to the hospital one time when I got a UTI, and not much later when I kept having bad symptoms, I went back in and got diagnosed.
    I really hope it becomes more tolerable soon, because it seems to be getting worse and worse so i'm going on the diet with no exceptions! Which is really hard because I love all things chocolate, and spicy food :/

    I'm glad you're going to go for the diet 100% --- let us know if it helps.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe

      You're stronger than me, I don't think I could have done the diet at 15. I'm 37 and I can barely do it now, lol. Hang in there, and best of luck to you!
