Hello my name is Cindy and I have IC. What is IC you ask?!
Interstitial Cystitis is a chronic bladder condition affecting 4 to 12 million people in the US. We often say that interstitial cystitis is as hard to say as it is to live with. Trouble saying interstitial cystitis? It is also called IC, painful bladder syndrome (PBS), bladder pain syndrome (BPS), and chronic pelvic pain (CPP).
Interstitial cystitis (in-ter-stish-uhl sĭ-stī’tĭs), or as we call it, IC, is a condition that consists of recurring pelvic pain, pressure, or discomfort in the bladder and pelvic region, often associated with urinary frequency (needing to go often) and urgency (feeling a strong need to go).
IT Sucks!! So one long winter night when I was in a lot of Pain and in a really bad flare I made myself a IC Teddy Bear to try and make me feel a little better and maybe not be so alone. I just did not want to go on living in so much pain. God I was in a lot of pain that long cold night. I took a picture of my IC Teddy Bear and posted it on Face Book, To my surprise 100s of people wanted my IC Teddy Bear. I called it The IC Bear. So I ask my Hubby to put this little website up to post my IC Teddy Bears and maybe different things to help out people with IC and other pain disorders. I may be posting all kinds of stuff to help you with your pain. We will see. lol
So there it is people. Take a look and cruse around a little bit. If you dont see something or you do see something you like just let me know.
