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 Q and I'm talking about Questions.
Being diagnosed with a chronic illness means I need to ask my doctor a lot of questions. The saying there are no stupid question really applies here. It doesn't matter if the question is silly of obvious. ASK IT. And don't be ashamed of embarrassing questions. It's part of any doctor's job to deal with gross, bodily functions. Just tell yourself they've probably seen worse.
And be persistent with your questions. What got me diagnosed with IC fast was when I insisted to my doctor that the urgency tormenting me was not an UTI and something else. Don't let the doctor brush you off. Understand they have a billion other patients they're trying to squeeze into one day, but hold your ground, and demand answers.
