    i really hate when i have to eat with my mom, she is just clueless sometimes. she said something like ' why can't you eat this' or ' who said you can't eat that' like i don't know anything about my own body and illness.
    i tried to explain to her that some food would trigger my pain in the bladder. but i didn't think she understood. i found out trying to explain our pain to non-icers is very difficult. it is not like a cold or diarreah that everyone has at least experienced once or twice in the life time.

      Yup, I almost forgot that one...

      "Try not to think about it so much, that only will make it worse."

      hmmmm....right, if I don't think about it so much I can "will" IC to go away......okay, whatevah! <img src="graemlins/banghead.gif" border="0" alt="[banghead]" />
      Somewhere there's a reason /Why things go like they do /Somewhere there's a reason /Why some things just fall through /We don't always see them /For what they really are /But I know there's a reason /Just can't see it from this far /Maybe I don't like it, /But I have no choice /I know that somewhere, /Someone hears my voice / I thought I knew it all /I thought I had it made /How could it end this way? /I thought I knew Somewhere there's a reason /Why things don't go my way /Somewhere there's a reason /That I cannot explain /Just like the change of season, /Just may not be my turn /But I know there's a reason, /The lesson's mine to learn

        Here is one of my all time favorites. My boss said "Hmmmmm, your bladder? That's a long way from your heart". What he meant was...it's not going to kill you. Somedays I wish it would.

          My favorite is "I don't like to use public restrooms so I learned to 'hold it'."

          As if I enjoy using public restrooms; like I don't try to 'hold it'!

            i have another to add to the list.
            I just love it when my boyfriend of all people says "going to the bathroom again".
            He sees me get up sometimes at 3:00 in the morning. He was there when the infections started, then turned into IC.
            I get up from watching a movie or just from hanging out to go pee. Maybe 10 min. later i get up to go again and he says that as if it's something new. I mean, what's the point in saying that!!! He has a nastly annoyed look on his face when he does it to which really maked me mad.
            I've had three tests that my Uro suggested that i knew wasn't related to my symptoms so of course they came back normal. So i guess my b/f just thinks i love to whine. But i go in for a cystoscopy, hydro, and biopsy on thursday, and that's the test i knew i needed all along. If they don't find anything, i wonder what kind of remark i'm going to get from him after that.
            Oh, and someone mentioned the unsincere apologies, he's the King of that. UGHHHHH!

              The worst is when your kid does something not-so-swell or not-so-smart - and when you note it to him, you hear him say "I know" in that defensive or dismissive way . . . when obviously he didn't know or he knew better in the first place (which, by the way, is a good comeback to those words . . . "No, you don't know b/c you either didn't know or you knew better" - My 11 year old hasn't forgotten that response! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

                Hey all,
                So this Trigger section continues, as I think we all need this.. My turn, How about the hubby telling you ,this is not the life I had planned on for both me and our children.. And why aren't you fixed yet? The yard is not as clean as you used to keep it, and how are we ever going to be able to afford college for the boy's or even vacations.. This I got tonight after my 2nd day of those new 3 hour cocktail installations, that are making both my IC and IBS/ IBD symptoms so bad.. And I have been tring to do this and not take anything for pain.. Also the Dr.. does not for some reason think I need it, because there is lidicaine in the cocktail, so it should'nt hurt... Laura M

                  What I'd like to know is WHY don't they notice what we DID get accomplished that day?????????

                  I am NEVER told, the grass looks nice. I'm glad you felt well enough to go to the grocery story. What do you mean I can't have a bj? it's been weeks........

                  I manage to take care of my home (not as well as I use to) and a cottage on the weekends. We have 5 adult kids with partners, 10 grandchildren....who in the he!! does he thinks feeds them? Where does he think the tp comes from? The paper plates, etc etc etc....

                  I have finally told him to talk to a lawyer because I just can not stand this man who thinks he is going to walk in the door some night and I am going to be this drop dead georgous sex fiend <img src="graemlins/cussing.gif" border="0" alt="[cussing]" /> with the perfectly cleaned house and dinner on the table every night....it's just too hard any more...................he's always reminding me how hard he works everyday, and I completely know and understand that. Well, he doesn't know how hard I work all day just to friggin' stay alive <img src="graemlins/cussing.gif" border="0" alt="[cussing]" /> I've just had IT <img src="graemlins/banghead.gif" border="0" alt="[banghead]" />

                    My husband has this disease, lmao, its called laziness. Yeah, you know, the first thing a man learns how to do, be lazy, like his daddy. Well, mine cant even pick his socks up off the floor in front of his chair. His favorate words are, I would do it, but I dont know how. Yeah, and I have let him get away with it for 7 years now, well, I am over it. We are on a 3 day fight, and I am not stopping untill he grows up.
                    This is why, the other night we were watching tv. Satellite had nothing on, so I told him to switch it to regular. It wasnt coming in. OK, so, he says "what do I do to get it to come in". He just got this antenna, but he doesnt know how to work it. OHHHHHH, I was soooo mad!!! [img]mad.gif[/img] So, I got up, stomped over to the antenna, and moved it, while giving him a nasty look. His reply is, "what" [img]confused.gif[/img] Like he doesnt know.
                    So, then the very nest day, we went to Meijer to get a new garbage disposal because mine broke. We also got some shower heads. On the way home, I said are you going to put the disposal in, or are you going to call your friend Shannon to do it. He said that he would have Shannon put in the disposal while he did the shower heads. Big Man, can put in shower heads. I said that I could put in the shower heads, shoot, our 5 year old could. He said that he could probably put in the disposal, but if he plays stupid, than someone else will do it. <img src="graemlins/eek.gif" border="0" alt="[eek]" /> <img src="graemlins/eek.gif" border="0" alt="[eek]" /> Wrong thing to say to me. This is what started the fight. He actually admitted that he is a total [email protected] Can you believe this!!!!!!!! [img]mad.gif[/img]
                    So, as of right now, he has no clean cloths, Me and the kids have been going out to eat, and there are 6 pair of socks in front of his chair. I am done. I am not raising 4 children. He is 30 years old, and I am tired of hearing, "but I dont know how". Bull honky. He has never changed a diaper, given a bath, fed a baby. None of it. I have done it all, he can atleast take care of himself. I am on strike. Do any of you have this problem with your husbands???? <img src="graemlins/hi.gif" border="0" alt="[hi]" />
                    Hope everyone is having good poddy days!!!!!!!

                      Hi everyone, yes I have the same problem with my husband and 14yr old son. They are both so lazy. My son gets it from his dad. He see's that his dad does not have too do any house work,so he thinks that he can act just like him, and I have had all that I can take.
                      It's so funny, my husband will see our sons faults "being lazy" , but he does not see his own.
                      He does work hard outside in this awful Florida heat, but I just don't see why he can't at least pick up his own dirty socks.

                      MEN......GO FIGURE.

                                <img src="graemlins/hi.gif" border="0" alt="[hi]" /> Hi dentalchick..just thought I'd let you know that I am thinking of ya! Your hubby doesn't seem to be very helpful, most men don't realize what we go through until they go through it, guess that's why they don't have the babies..so typical! Just wanted to let you know that you're not alone and this isn't all in your head, like we've all heard at one point or another...I get support most of the time but when it disrupts any plans that he wants to do, then I get "the look"...We were thinking of going on a vacation and I was worried about finding bathrooms and wondering if it would be worth it and he says "hey you will be having so much fun and we'll be so busy, you won't even be thinking about your bladder!" Well, hey maybe I should just stop obsessing about my bladder and get off these disability payments! MORON! Sorry about my litte tangent! Thinking of you!
