If you're like me, and you have (or had) bladder pain and the constant need to urinate, have you ever stopped to wonder if there is an emotional component? So many times over the years I experienced the many insults, abuse, sadness, and feelings of anger over my situation. But instead of crying, shouting, seeing a therapist, or journaling out these emotions, I tucked them deep inside of me. I think my bladder finally decided that enough was enough and instead of holding it all in and allowing more of these damaging emotions to build up, it spoke up and said "Listen to this pain. Deal with it right now! Let it go and let if flow." It took me five years to deal with all of the built-up emotions of my life. My bladder is no longer angry and I work very hard to go with the flow of life. So give it a try to see how releasing built up toxic emotions are playing a role in your IC pain and symptoms.
