    AMEN Diana!!

    We are all entitled to a pity party occasionally. IC is awful - some months (or weeks or days) are much better than others.

    Using the boards is a great way to "talk" with people who really DO understand how you feel. Taking your meds, and even changing some with your doc's approval, can help you over this hump. (My last flare lasted 3 months and is finally letting up...)

    Here's hoping you feel better soon - that we ALL can have a better tomorrow!

    IC diagnosis 1999
    Meds: Elmiron
    hydroxyzine hcl
    DMSO as needed
    valium as needed
    librax 3x day

    TENS therapy

    Thanks to all on the boards - YOU have helped more than I can say!

    A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world.

        You know, I saw the title of the thread and thought it was one of mine!. I go up and down so often I ought to charge my family for riding the roller coaster with me. (ha, ha, ha!) Seriously, It's ok. It's normal. It wouldn't be right if you didn't have pity parties. Look at how your life has changed. Hell, I can't work, and took my diplomas, licenses off the office walls last year in a fit of depression. Couldn't handle having a master's degree that I worked so damn hard for, and a teaching license with endorsements for a wide variety of subjects and grades. (My husband put them back up last year at Christmas, I couldn't quite throw them away)

        Ups and downs are normal, I'm learning this. just hang onto the the bronc's back and don't let go.
        I.C. DX'd following my "second hysterectomy" (the remaining ovary, that kept bursting and bleeding 2 years after my hyster/right oompherectomy, was removed in 2003. I was a special ed teacher. I am now very lost, and feeling rather hopeless in my life.

        Medications I CURRENTLY take:
        90 mgs Ms contin (45 mgs Am/PM)
        Percocet as needed
        Topomax 100mg day
        Ambien 10 mg bed
        desipramine 25 mgs

        If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.
