Just wanted to say that I met another girl with IC the other day! She actually happend to be WORKING WITH ME too! She just started last week! :) Also I know one other lady in my town who has confided in me a few times about some of her symptoms. I was able to give her links to the diet and help with some of her symptoms. It felt so good to help someone else :)
Even though I wish she didn't have it, I have to say that it is nice to be able to TALK to someone who knows! FACE TO FACE, which I never thought could happen.
She lives her life just like me, she works, she has a boyfriend, she is happy and she does very well!!! Proof that IC can be successfully lived with :D

Yes Jenn you are right it is very nice to see someone face to face that has this , I was in a conference in 2005 I think here in San Diego and meet a few people with IC but there is nothing like having a friend face to face to talk to ? I am glad you have meet some ladies you guys can help each other now and place IC with a face!

PS my mom and daughter want to go to Canada on a trip I have seen all of the Anne of Green Gable movies, so we are going to plan on that for next year? if everything goes well.
At my last job, a coworker also had IC. I was sorry she had it too, but it was a relief to occasionally talk to someone who understood. And when we had treat days at work, we'd look at each other's plate and laugh. That helped keep it in perspective somehow.
I'd say meeting Ruth was one of the high points of the 2005 IC conference for me! To actually meet someone I'd posted with was really great:) To meet some of the doctors who care so much for us and are trying every day to find a cure was also enormously encouraging.
I love Canada! But you know that from my vacation post already:) I'm planning another trip to Quebec City next year and thinking maybe Nova Scotia after that! (Vancouver BC was a very IC-friendly vacation also - went with my mom a few years ago & we rented a hotel room with a kitchennette, saw the whole city on one of those hop-on/off buses! I really recommend it.)

Oh Kadi that is so nice, thanks I felt the same way. You know I was thinking why don't we have a conference of our own so we can all meet each other? I mean who ever would want to attend? I know I would.
