Because of the lack of information on IC, I began to read everything I could find about IC and that’s when I discovered the Interstitial Cystitis Association. Thanks to the information and the work they provide to the medical community and IC patients, I was able to get educated about IC and its treatment options and research. Through my UrogynecoIogist’s office, I met another IC patient who was working to start a local support group and worked with her to make her dream of having a local IC Support Group come true! Through my Support Group Leader and our group, I have been inspired to communicate with other IC patients and work to provide help and direction on where to find the best information on IC and its treatments and current research. And so my journey with IC continues.
My hope for this blog is that it will be a place of positivity, information, support and inspiration. I hope to post regularly; sometimes perhaps just quick thoughts and other times maybe longer pieces about topics I believe are important.
