Thanks for reading. I have been dealing with tms symltoms of IC and PFD since the end of 2014. Improved by late the following year. PFD so much better. Thank you hypnotherapy. And of course Sarno. I am an anxious person with some confidence issues so this shoe fits. Anyway, for the past 2 months I've had some worse days. I mean I have never been totally symptom free but most of the time do well and practice outcome independence hardcore. Yesterday morning was insane. I can't believe how much my bladder hurt. I drank more water and that made things worse. It feels like having my bladder empty helps so much. I am better today for sure, but that shadow of nerve pain is still hovering and I can't help but worry some something will invite it back. I haven't been so bad since 2015. Nothing has really changed in the past 2 months. In the first half of 2017 I had a baby and we moved to a bigger home in a nicer area. This is my 4th so being a mom is not a new stressor. I just want to forget the bladder exists. I don't want to think physical, but of course now I feel I should be cautious about bladder irritants and my hydration level. I keep praying it's some extinction burst. And it is not a UTI. How can this variation be so volatile? How can I go from am 8 to a 1 and back and forth? Is improvement from an empty or near empty bladder really associative learning? Want to never return to my former dark misery. But today I'm ok. I notice I'm thinking about it more so I'm trying to distract myself while not over or underhydrating.
