Although you have done a much better job with your diet and your IC symptoms are much improved, you still over-indulged a bit with crackers, cheese, and a Christmas cookie here and there over the holidays. I'm thankful that you didn't try to ring in 2010 with alcohol like you did the previous New Years (I sure let you have it, didn't I?), but the holidays have still taken its toll and I am tired and sore. A little bladder infection is a not so gentle reminder that you will always need to be careful with your diet and to eat more greens, drink more green tea and less coffee, and exercise more in the new year. So as you drink extra water and take twice a day doses of oil of oregano to clear the bladder infection: remember how far you've come, but don't ever let up with your health. Bladders never forget.
