    I love you Donna!
    I go to water aerobics 5 days a week, sometimes in the morning, sometimes at night. I don't know if it is doing anything yet or not, I just started 2 months ago. Sometimes I feel like it is just a stress reliever and that is fine with me. I take enough pills. Last week we had a different instructor and I actually had pain in my thighs for the first time since my trial week. For some reason I can make the whole hour without having to pee, I even get down time in the hot tub after. At home it seems like I can never go a whole hour without peeing unless I am intentionally holding an instillation. Weird.
    I was born with one ureta not attached to it's kidney, I've been poked and prodded for so long. I never had "private" parts. I had constant infections and took low dose preventive antibiotics into my teens.

    DX with IC July 1993 after seeing 3 different Uro's and finally switching Primary care doctors and affiliated hospitals.

    I have 2 beautiful daughters, the oldest has been in heaven since she was 14 when she was hit by a car The youngest is 20 now. She has had one UTI. She went into complete panic that she would end up like me. Now she has some idea of what the pain is like. Poor kid has been forced to know where every bathroom in Disney World is.
