hi everyone, I'm on day three. I'm surprised, REALLY surprised to discover this process. I'm grateful that so many of you take the time to check back in caring for us that are just starting out. It's a huge comfort to search question even from google and find so many of you answering question after question with long thoughtful answers. And of course I'm worried. I suppose that goes without saying. I've had bladder discomfort since October. No good reason, but not willing to do cystoscopy to confirm. Just pretty darn sure my bladder is fine. Have seen doctors and PT tho. Doing a good job of reading, homework, and ditching the IC diet and PT and all manner of other props. But I guess I do have a question. Many years ago after a horrible traumatic time a dropped into an anxiety disorder overnight. Went to counseling had some pills and got through it in about six months. Rarely any issues since even after my husband left our family. But NOW I'm worried (and have read stories) that my bladder issues (mild bit aggravating) will morph into anxiety or at least a lot of crazy making mental gymnastics with this process. Frying pan into the fire so to speak. Would rather have bladder issue than anxiety. How can I do this mental work, keep calm and not panic that if I don't control my mind properly my body is going to go off in a ditch. It's scary and a bit overwhelming to me to think controlling my mind is the answer. Other people might find that comforting but it worries me.
