  • please help me

    I am sooooo depressed and soooo worried. I don't know what to do. Currently I am not on meds.....I just got married 9 months ago and I went of the pill to try to get pregnant...but I didn't want to go on medication. So, I've been trying other alternative is helps, but I don't like too many of them. I'm very upset...all I've ever wanted is to be a mother....I feel like my chances have been robbed. I feel like I have to take medication and just live with this disease! I'm soo upet...I can't even visualize myself happy. My husband and I are building a new house and we werw so set on our future and now I'm not set......I'm confused, scared, mad, sad, worried, and so many other feelings! Oh, please help me....
    Thank you.

        I'm sorry too!!! Don't give up that dream just yet though! Start practicing all those self-help strategies (relaxation, diet, heating pad or cold pack, rest, etc.) and don't forget to pamper yourself as a whole. I believe that managing IC takes more than just being kind to the bladder...we have to be kind to our whole person. Do things to lift your spirit too!...Paint your nails, read a warm & fuzzy type book, listen to your favorite music...whatever it takes! Keep looking for a good doc too! One that will work with your IC and dream of being a mommy. I'm sending you lots of healing thoughts and remember that I'm always here to offer support and understanding. I've been there!!

          Thank you for your inspiring thoughts...I'm trying...I will get there! I have to remember what I told someone else on here: God wouldn't give me the desire if it wasn't supposed to happen. Thanks again.

            Dear Arroyo,

            I`ve been there also... I was scaredout of my mind when I went off meds to try to get pregnant.. The pain came back less than a week after... I was discourage but then I tried acupunture... 3 days after the first treatment, it was much better! I`ve been going regularly ever since and putting cold on my belly for the first months also helped. I`m now at 39 weeks and I had a very nice pregnancy. (I may never know if I just went in remission or if it`s the acupuncture but I did it!!!) I`m also carefull about my diet (although I had cravings and tried things I wouldn`t have normally : It went ok.)

            Don`t give up hope!

            Hugs. Nikky
