    Does anyone have a favorite article that they use to show friends that explains what IC is all about?

    I dont know of one yet, but I am working on a letter for my family so that when we move back into my home state the family will understand what I have. If you like I will share it with you when I am done. Lisa

    God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging......The LORD Almighty is with us the GOD of Jacob is our fortress." Psalm 46:1-3,7

    May God bless our nation

      What a good idea. I was just looking for something today to send to a gal who seems to have many of the symptoms. I need to look closer at the handbook here and the ICA...

      Did you know that up to 94% of interstitial cystitis patients find some symptom relief when they change their diet, and that dietary modification is recommended as a first line treatment for IC? Check out the IC Food List to get started!

        The ICN is a great source for info. And so is the ICA. They have several information brochures (the standard 3 fold format).
        Depending upon where your relatives live, there might be an IC forum coming there soon. I live in CA, but last month there was an ICA forum in Pittsburgh, PA where my family lives. My mom and grandmother went and gathered lots of info and education. I'm lucky that my family was so supportive to go to such an event. Your family may surprise you with how supportive they can be.
        take care,
        Also my boyfriend donates money to the ICA. Not much $, but even small amounts mean so much.
