The issue of food and the pain and fear that we as IC patients face aside, I must address once again and give thanks for everyone who reads this blog and sends me private messages throughout the year. I am so grateful for each of you and I thank you for your courage and inspiration as IC patients. There are so many great things happening in the world of science and medicine right now to help people suffering from painful conditions such as IC that I also want to thank the tireless doctors, researchers and health care communities who continue their efforts for finding a cure for IC.
I would also like the opportunity to thank my extended family, circle of friends and always and forever to the love of my life, N., for your continued support and love and encouragement over the many years. Together we can all do great things! In this season of 'thanks-giving' I feel overwhelmed with gratitude for each of you that has come across my path.
