Helping someone else....
I didn't know where to put this but wanted to share...My pharmacist asked me how I liked my Elmiron one day. Turns out, she was just diagnosed with IC. Gave her the website and she checked it out and is now looking at how to manage her symptoms from the start and as a good tool for information.
I think it was a success because this site is here, to help others like it helps me and it felt great to be able to share with someone.....
