    Do You Have IC? Here is Someone Who Really Knows How You Feel

    Do You Have IC? Here is Someone Who Really Knows How You Feel Sometimes, when life is very difficult with IC, it is helpful to know that there is someone else out there who genuinely understands what you are going through, like Cathy Simone does. While there are other inspiring books for people with painful chronic disorders, this one can really reach out and touch the person with IC. It is also wonderful that Cathy shares her journey and discoveries on what helped her with IC and what didn¿t. As the western medical community and researchers struggle with this disorder, it is heartening to know that people with IC often do find additional help in the form of complementary medical practices, lifestyle changes, diet changes, and focusing on other things in life that give us meaning, like close, supportive relationships with other people. When I work with people with IC, I often refer them to this book. I recommend it not just for the self-help ideas and suggestions it provides, which are excellent, but also for the story of someone who has successfully worked their way through a disorder that can look impossibly hopeless and tangled. Cathy Simone gives people with IC hope.

    Absolute Must-Have for Anyone with IC!

    This book not only tells people WHAT IC is, the author also offers no-holds-barred honest advice on methods that you can use to cope with this frustrating and painful disease. For too long, people have been hesitant to tell the truth about modern medicine. Add to that a lawsuit-happy world, and people become afraid to be specific about what might help you fight IC. We NEED information and that's what this book gives us. She never claims to have all the answers, but thank God that she is willing to share her success with others. Personally, I've found both inspiration and actual improvements in my painful condition thanks to this book. Thanks, Cathy, for writing this book that some people were afraid for you to publish!

    A book that even doctors should read!

    This book made me cry, laugh and understand that I was not alone in my pain and suffering. Anyone suffering from any type of bladder disorder that produces pain, cystitis and is accompanied by a host of other medical problems, should read this book.
