  • working on Thesis and IC rears ugly head

    So I've been working on my masters for 17 months now in an accelerated online program. Since becoming unemployed 11 months ago, it has been easier to rest as needed due to IC.

    Since 5 weeks ago, i've been experiencing what I can only describe as a tension headache in my bladder. I am sure I'm carrying all my project stress right there in my bladder. I am not in full flare mode but I am in discomfort.

    I'm just at my wits end on what to try next. I have 5 more weeks of this intense project, really just two weeks to get the project done before edits. UGH.

    I do have one suggestion --- take a break --- every day. It's amazing what a difference it can make to take an hour or two to go for a walk, watch a movie, read a book, or just take a nap.

    Stay safe
