  • I think we're....

    Adopting!!! I am really excited. My dh and I have prayed long and hard over this one, and talked about it many many times. I have 2 kids already, and we would like more, but I am not ready to get off of Paxil or Elmiron for quite some time to become pregnant. We had talked about adoption way before my IC ever came into being, so now that I have it it just makes so much sense.

    We are looking into adopting a baby from Guatemala. We have been pre-approved but have to go through the formal application and all the paperwork. It could take a really long time though.

    Well, I had to post this, I am about to bust with excitement!

    Sara - that is just wonderful!!! Thank you for sharing that with us!!! baby

    Diagnosed August 2001

    Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)

    Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

    I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.


    “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl

    “You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” ~ Brian Tracy

      I'm so happy for you. I know things will work out. AAAHHH.....I've got 2 little girls you can have if they don't go to bed. But I'll have to have them back in a day or so. Good Luck and keep us posted.

        I think that's a wonderful idea. There are definitely children in our world who desperately need loving parents.

          Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".
