  • Thank you so much for your prayers!!

    I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support,they have really helped me ALOT!I was really down and depressed after I got home from the hospital, but then my daughter (Tracy) would print out the care and concern that you all have showed and it would lift my spirits ALOT. You are right I do have a Great daughter!It was like I was the child and she was the mother,,everytime I would get up,it was,where are you going? What are you going to do?lol. I just wanted you to know that I am doing lots better with all your prayers and have just about full use of my arm back. You guys are the BEST..thank You.... grouphug grouphug Brea

    Soooo glad to hear you are home and hopefully feeling better.

    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
