Unfortunately, the pain and discomfort that IC-ers (like me) face every day will continue indefinitely. By helping to raise awareness, however, hopefully we can help others with bladder / pelvic pain to minimize symptoms and discover coping strategies to make life more normal and enjoyable.
I thought I'd share a wonderful video that I recently stumbled upon that features a plethora of really useful resources for people living with IC. I've done my fair share of research in the past, but Jill Osbourne, President of ICN (Interstital Cystitis Network) and fellow IC-er, introduced me to a few new books that I'm very excited about checking out. Click here for the video (don't forget to grab a pen and some paper to jot down the book titles that interest you!)
Finally, the ICN web site has a wealth of information and support. If you know of anyone who is struggling with bladder / pelvic issues, feel free to encourage them to bookmark it.
Thanks so much, once again, for helping me to spread the word about interstitial cystitis, and for your interest in sharing resources that can be helpful for so many people.
Cheers to a pain-free October!
