so remember back in october
, when i thought i kept getting UTIs
. but then it turned out to be this terrible, chronic problem? maybe you don't. but i remember it like it was just yesterday. well, last saturday
i started to feel like i was getting a UTI
again. but now that i have IC
, it's common to feel that way when you are "flaring." just to be safe, i went into the doctor on wednesday
to leave a sample. the nurse said it looked okay but she sent it off to be cultured. she said she'd call on friday
to tell me if i needed an antibiotic. in the meantime, i've
been sleeping with a heating pad between my legs (it looks a lot less sexy than it sounds), guzzling water and spending a few nights in tears.
the nurse called today. i do have an infection. time to start 500mg of the antibiotic for five days.
i can't even believe this.
