  • Went on Canada fishing trip with TravelJohns!

    I just wanted to rave about the TravelJohn unisex disposable urinals. I am still amazed by them. We just got back from a fishing trip to Canada. This was our 6th time being there, but it's been 3 years since we were there -- had to wait for Olivia to be old enough. I took the TravelJohn urinals with me and they worked out so wonderfully! The lake(s) we go to are large and long and before when we went we were constantly turning around and going back to the cabin to go to the bathroom. Well, not any more! I could sit on my boat seat and scoot forward, pull everything down, urinate and be done without anyone knowing what I was doing. They immediately solidify the urine, I threw them in a garbage bag and went back to fishing. Amazing. I even portaged to one of the other lakes (something I've never done before because of the no-bathroom issue) and went out fishing even when I knew I was going to have to keep urinating. Sorry to go on and on, but I'm just thrilled with them and had to post. I now carry one in my purse for emergencies. I also got their folding commode (from their website) for IBS issues and it folds and fits in a compartment on the boat. Great!

    Happy camping/fishing to all!

    wow that is great news Darcy. I am glad that you had wonderful trip fishing. My brotherinlaw has a boat down the cape and they want me to go on it, and I think he put a bathroom on there. Maybe I will go on it and enjoy the ocean.
    Hang in there , There is hope.
    There is hope. Prayer works.

    Love, Debbie

      That is great, Darcy!

      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
