  • Nursing student with IC and over-active bladder

    So I just started my nursing program just recently and looking for tips for managing the symptoms and flares. I had my first day of class last wed and met this prof. Thank God he let us take a 5 minute break every hour from 3-hour class, enough for me to run to the bathroom to pee. It is so hard knowing that I have to live my whole life with IC but it is not the end of the world, this IC wont stop me chasing my dream career.

      Letting the instructor of this lengthy class know that you may need to use the bathroom (and perhaps sitting near the door to make leaving & returning less distracting) could be a good idea. No need to suffer if you are having a "moment" with your bladder! Congratulations on starting your path to a wonderful career!
