  • Wisdom

    Lately, I've been seeing some, how should I put it...sarcastic posts, and some upsetting things around here. So one night, while venting to a wise, dear lady, and almost in tears, (it's been a long year already, a bowl of pudding could bring me to tears for crying out loud LOL!) this great woman said to me, "Jess, don't let one person unravel you." Since then, those words have echoed through my mind, and tonight, as I replied to a post that rather upset me, and it went away, all the upset.

    So thanks, to *August*, who has been there for me for quite some time now!! But of course, we may all know her as Betsie Wetsie!! lmao And NO way is she getting those brownie edges. scream

    I am grateful for that wisdom, to just let things go, and don't be unraveled by one person. Check out her tagline--wisdom hides there, too.

    Have a great morning, afternoon, and evening!!

    Jess - You are pretty awesome yourself. It can be so hard to maintain tact on message boards sometimes - I struggle at times myself. You have always seemed to do a good job of it. Keep up the good work.

    Another good phrase I have heard in terms of resentment or anger is, "Don't let someone else have rent free space in your head!"

    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
