Brat...I would never say that to you. God gave us prayer so we could help in times of trial and tribulation. It is a privilege to pray for friends and family members. You certainly qualify for both of those places in my heart.
I do pray for Joyce and that this surgery will work and that she will have total remission from this cancer. I also pray for you...that God will give you rest and peace.Sharon
Shopping??? Did someone mention shopping? I'll get my hat... ;-)

Oh my goodness. Definitely saying a prayer for your neighbor....Kim
Diagnosed August 2001
Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)
Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)
My IC story: http://www.ic-network.com/patientstories/kim.html It's very outdated now. I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.
“We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl
“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” ~ Brian Tracy

Life is a collaboration and in a collaboration, you have to be willing to admit that you may be wrong. Validation is the thread that holds the key to understanding.
