    Hi all, and thanks for this support... means the world to me when it seems like everything is crumbling around me! Yesterday ended up turning out okay by the end of the day, and at least today is Friday!!!

    I love the quote about bad things being cowards -- thanks Rivet Kitty

    *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
    *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
    *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
    *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).

              I know... my boss at least needs a kick in the butt!!! LOL... I'm sorry you guys are having lousy days/weeks too. Let's all try and have a GREAT weekend, and hope that next week is better.

              At least my Friday is looking up -- I got leads on two cool new jobs, so... maybe one day soon I'll be posting that I am out of this lab

                What great news Jen! Your current employers loss will be someone elses gain! You are a very intelligent caring person, and any boss should be proud of an employee like you. Your boss will realize his mistakes when you give him your notice and reality kick in. I hope to hear of interviews soon!
