Interstitial Cystitis and Living

A condition that is associated with chronic pain, interstitial cystitis can affect a person's quality of life -- and not just by causing physical symptoms. People often struggle with anger, anxiety, and depression as byproducts of this condition. 
 
Even though living with interstitial cystitis is not always easy, many options are available to help you cope with the illness. For example, physicians often encourage people with this condition to try self-hypnosis, self-relaxation, and other coping techniques, or to seek therapy with psychologists or psychiatrists.
