Vacation Season


Vacation season can be very difficult for IC patients. Long car rides, different eating habits, emotional stress, lack of sleep, can all cause massive IC flares. However, with a little determination and some good planning, you can take some steps to make your vacation and travel with IC easier. The easiest step to take is purchasing ICA’s Restroom Access card. This plastic wallet card communicates your emergency need for a toilet. The card also gives a brief description of IC and explains your need to use of toilet facilities in public places. (Donors at the $50+ Supporter level have immediate online access to a downloadable PDF of the Restroom Card, as well as many other helpful resources.)
