Here go read about me and stuff that comes out my face...i'm neat
I’ve been needing (yes needing) to write a piece on this topic for quite a long time. Usually when I am so inclined to spout my thoughts and feelings on a topic I just sit down and do so with no questions asked and absolutely no procrastinating. Unfortunately, this topic deserves pure thought, passion, and patience (and we all know that patience is not something that comes in abundance in the Taliverse). This topic is something that has plagued my thought process for the past 7 years of my life and continues to do so on a daily basis. I’m quite surprised I haven’t attempted to tackle this subject earlier but as I said before…it deserves the utmost dedicated attention and the words that I write to do said topic a complete and utter justice. This is not an easy subject to handle but I plan to do so in a way that gives you no choice but to think about it from my point of view. I have a knack for making people see things my way if only until the end of my rant but at least you will have thought about it in a little less of a close minded manner for the next 10 minutes of your life. That to me is a start…and something that I’m willing to accept for now. In light of September being IC
awareness month, I feel this is, in fact, the right time to challenge the non-believers and ask just one question…one question in many different ways….Why, pray tell, do you think that a bladder disease that causes massive amounts of acid pissing and uti (urinary tract infection) symptoms with no infection, dysfunctional abdominal muscles that cause painful pressure and stomach spasms all of the time, and painful sex due to unruly nerve endings and constant muscle spasm is so unbelievably impossible? Why?
I want you to stop right now and actually ponder what it is about these conditions that make you shun the possibility so quickly. What about these problems is so laughable that it causes families to break up and lifetime friends to mock the chronic pelvic pain
patient uncontrollably? It’s something I’ve always wondered and something that I would honestly love to hear and I plan to, in excess, but only after you hear me out. I’ve been listening to people tell me that it’s all in our heads for years and quite frankly I think it’s time to ask you why your head tells you this pain that so many of us feel in this world is so impossible while there are so many other conditions that have less of a scientific and medical explanation out there than these that are readily accepted by the you (who just so happens to be the typical IC/Chronic Pelvic Pain
non believer) and the rest of society.
