    This is a really interesting thread. My husband is always laughing at me for startling so easily. I, too, tend to get hyped-up about both good and bad events.

    Let us know how the Vesicare works, please. Frequency seems to be my primary problem at this point as well.

      I just began my IC journey (dx with possible in May). I work at a hospital (public) and I KNOW that I walk around just jacked up all the time. I'll seeing a therapist and trying Mindfulness Meditation.
      I know what you mean because, not really reated to food, I hurt after a day of work and not on the weekends .
      Lets talk more!
