I talk a lot in therapy about how to cope with boredom. This Blog in and of itself is a means to bypass boredom, try to feel useful and give something back to everyone struggling with the same issues. For some, it's trying to "live" with their IC, continue to work, manage families and spouses. For others, like me, it's having had to sell my home that I worked my whole life to finally get, and move in with my parents. Yes, it's a blessing to have them healthy and able to take me in. But nonetheless, it has its own challenges.
So it dawned on me, that the very thing I was struggling with was something that maybe all IC patients could identify with. I know working with my therapist is helping me a lot. I could not cope the way I do without working with her. But it is a work in progress.
