Interstitial Cystitis and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction explained in real people terms.

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 an issue I just sit down and do so with no questions asked and absolutely no procrastinating. Unfortunately, this subject deserves pure thought, passion, and patience (and we all know that patience is not something that comes in abundance in the Taliverse).
