For the month of April, I will be blogging every day (minus every Sunday but the 1st) about Interstitial Cystitis for The A to Z Blogging Challenge. Each day I will talk about a subject dealing with IC and my life living with it.
Today is O and I'm talking about Other Chronic Illnesses.
Along with Interstitial Cystitis, I also have Endometriosis and Iritis. Honestly, it seems you never get just one chronic illness. Something else always tags along. For IC. According to my urologist, a lot of people find they also have Endometriosis or IBS along with IC. It's like that whole area of your body just decides to hate you and make you miserable as a result.
Then sometimes you think you have one chronic illness only to find out it's an underlying cause. I spent a few months getting a bunch of tests done to see if that was the case for my Iritis. Only after ruling everything out, could I say no.
Nothing is simple with it comes to chronic illness. That's why it's important no matter what one you have to have a doctor who listens to you, to listen to your body, and be good to yourself.
