    I am a mother of two wonderful boys Chris 6 and Sam 2. I was diagnosed earlier this year but have struggled for a very long time with no diagnoses and no answers. My pain and constant (what they thought were) UTI's have made my life difficult and sometimes it takes all of my strength to get up in the morning. Still I like to think of myself as a survivor and would love to share my story (however it is a long one). Constant bathroom trips with a toddler and a six year old are difficult to say the least but my children are well behaved (for the most part) and understand as much as their age allows. I am so blessed to have a husband who loves me and children that are healthy and bright. However some days I wish I could stay in bed and wallow in my pain but my children come first. I would love to know how other mothers and wives deal with this lifestyle (sex life-nonexistent, bathroom breaks all the time, and almost constant pain) but for the most part I think I have a pretty blessed life.

    Take: elmiron 2twice a day
    Cymbalta once a day
    Prosed ds as needed
    Lydocaine gel for sex
    Tramadol as needed
    Oxycodone as needed
    Orthro Evra Patch constantly because my period makes me flare

    Diagnosed with severe IC April 2011

    Suffered for 8 years without a diagnoses
    I'm 23 and have always had issues but when I was 16 things got much worse. I saw urologists, pediatricians, and gynecologists and nobody had any answers it was either in my head or an infection. Finally found a wonderful doctor who diagnosed me with IC.[/QUOTE]

    I am fellow IC'er and I am hoping to write a book on moms with chronic pain and how they deal/stories/etc. IF you can help me, please let me know.
