Tabitha’s Fight Like a Girl Story (Interstitial Cystitis)

Tabitha's Story (IC)For 5 years it seemed like every month I was going into the doctors office for a urinary tract infection. About a two year’s ago, I finally found out what is actually wrong with me. It has changed my life forever.

Hi, my name is Tabatha, and for the last 7 years I have been living with interstitial cystitis. Not many people know what it is. I didn’t know what it was either, until I was diagnosed with it.

I have learned to deal with my disease. Thank goodness it hasn’t been as bad as some of those out there!! All the articles I have read say that IC patients have pain like that of chronic cancer pain patients, and their quality of life is like someone in end stages renal failure.

I don’t have time to let it get me down!! I FIGHT LIKE A GIRL for my family and friend’s!!
