Dear Urologists,

Interstitial Cystitis patients really need you to help with this debilitating chronic horrible pain. Please stop sending us to pain management doctors that do not know what to do with us. We are living very limited lives. The government is taking the few medications that somewhat help. Depression, anxiety or panic attacks is what we are facing. IC is burning us day in day out. Please help us. Please make this condition an important matter. We are trying to raise awareness because that’s all we have. Please help this community. And to all my IC sisters and brothers please do not stop advocating. We need you too. Alot of IC patients are committing suicide and as sad as this is I DO NOT BLAME THEM. THIS HURTS BADLY IS TOO MUCH. Thank you for reading this. Mari Vasquez. The Raw Reality of Interstitial Cystitis.


If you are tired of suffering alone or ashamed to speak on this horrible illness please help us help you in raising awareness for Interstitial Cystitis. You are not alone. We must keep helping one another to find help. We need at least one doctor who wants to help and care and understand that our quality of life is too much to bare. This chronic pain condition is affecting millions of people and we have no new medications or even research. Please find us on Facebook and Instagram. The Raw Reality of Interstitial Cystitis. Thank you.
