  • those lousy desks...

    Does anyone else find that the desks provided at university - the ones that have that little RIGHT handed table and squish you - are particularly offending to your IC. I'm thinking that my IC is now aggrivated because when I was off school I didn't sit in those desks, and now I have them sometimes for three hours at a stretch and I'm wondering if the crampy uncomfortable position puts any stress/pressure on my bladder. I seem to be doing most other things right and this is the biggest difference I can find from a few months ago...

    I'm planning on returning to school in August and that's one thing that I fear most...THOSE LOUSY DESKS! You'd think after all these years they could come up with a practical option that is much more comfortable.

    It's kinda sad that my biggest worries about returning to school are the desks and discomfort associated with, plus the fact that I may not be able to make it thru a class without getting up and running to the bathroom. I used to could go all day without making a bathroom run. Oh, how I miss those days! [img]frown.gif[/img]

    Anyway, I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing with your desk being the problem. I guess it depends on how you look at it and how much school you have left. Hopefully, it's not much! [img]wink.gif[/img] But, I'm wishing you better days ahead! [img]smile.gif[/img] Take care!

      Ugh. We have those desks in the chem. lab at my high school. I know exactly what you mean. I think they put a lot of pressure on the pelvic area. Luckily, I don't take chemistry anymore! Some of the regular desks are pretty bad too though. Are they the kind that are all joined together in rows? Or are they seperate? If so, would you be allowed to request a different kind?

        Sitting upright at a desk of any kind irritates my IC.
