The ICA was instrumental in me receiving the correct diagnosis. As a repository of evidence-based information, the ICA has also been incredibly important in many of the treatment choices I have made over the years. Beyond that, it has provided me with a connection to others who understand what it is like to live with this condition, the value of which is hard to put into words.
