Tomorrow I have two appointments. I will go for my weekly bladder instillation in the morning and then in the afternoon I have my appointment with my gastroenterologist to discuss the hiatal hernia pain and GERD issues that I've talked about that are flaring up. I'm hoping to get some answers. It will be a long day and I know I will need a nap when I get home, but getting my instillation before going to the next appointment is always a good idea for me. It helps me be better able to get through the next several hours in reasonable comfort. I always try to plan it that way if I have to see more than doctor on the same day. Get the instillation first, then move on to the next appointment. I am much more comfortable when I do that.
As you know if you follow my Blog, you know I am a big proponent of using Social Media to help raise awareness about IC. I've been using Twitter almost daily (check me out @Catwoman720 and see who I am following). Well today I am excited because I am starting to get some of those I'm Tweeting following me back on Twitter! I am excited about this! I have lots more to get, but persistence seems to be helping me gain traction and anything I can do to raise #ICAwareness then I am happy! Everyone should do this. The more of us doing this, the bigger the impact! But when I got notification today that I now have several new followers on Twitter, it made my day!
So, my IC week is full of activities and opportunities. I'm going to talk to my Support Group tonight about helping raise #ICAwareness and just enjoy seeing my friends tonight. I also am SO grateful to my Support Group leader for all she does for our group and me as well. Thanks to her dedication and hard work, we have a great group! These things all give me goals and help me stay positive and focused on what I CAN do and not the negative. I hope everyone can do the same!
