Nancy, I just read the book"Conquering Bladder and Prostate problems" by Jerry G. Blanks,MD. Chapter 11 is about interstitial cystitis and talks alot about behavior modification and this disease. I whole-heartedly agree with his suggestions and info. The bladder training is helping me more than anything else. The info. is up-to date and it makes alot of sense. I am going to start work with a physical therapist specializing in IC so we'll see how it goes. Let me know how you're doing.
