Joel: I.C. is a horrible thing to have. Being tired with your patients is just one of the many issues you will be faced with. What I suggest is you deal with one issue at a time, and do not once forget that your decision(s) should be based around what is best for you - not anyone else. You will have to make a few decisions that under "normal"circumstances you would decide differently; however, do not ever put your health second. If you do have IC, this is probably the best mental support advise you will receive.
