  • I am greatful for...

    I am greatful for so many people in my life and would like to list a few people who have made a real dent in my life (in a good way).

    Tammy- my PT, who can make me feel better no matter how bad of a mood I'm in. She also goes above and beyond the duties of a PT. She is currently helping me to find the solution to my chronic knee pain (even after surgery) by talking to some doctors she used to corrispond with.

    Dorie- who sometimes pokes fun at my IC. Although she too has a bladder the size of a Jujube.

    Alisha- my best friend of 11 years who has stood by me IC and all. She even played cards with me while I was sitting on the potty during an IC flare. My partner in crime

    Emilie- my other friend (of 7 years) who, even though she doesn't grasp the severity of my IC, still helps keeps me sane and makes me smile.

    My urologist (current)- because he knows about IC and NEVER said "it's all in your head".

    Julia- another friend who is a rabid fan of anime/manga/J-Pop (as am I) and it was nice to find someone is school who shares the same interest. Although I could have lived with out the "pokes" (don't ask).

    I am also greatful for my over all good health, family (or what's left of it), my home, and the TV show LOST--which keeps me sane. Most of all I am greatful for this board of supportive people.

    Thank you--everyone.

    I truly believe sometimes we do have to step back and look at all the things we are grateful for, even if its just the little things in life...

    I am grateful today that is has been a week and a half that my step son has got all good points.. This is really a big deal because he is making progress and that is very good for him

    I am also so grateful for my loving husband... He is wonderful!!
