Interstital Cystitis is a painful debilitating bladder condition where little is known about the cause. Sufferers in the UK are denied help and having to fight to prove what impact it has on our lives to claim disability benefits. Sufferers can become house bound as we spend our lives in severe pain with frequency, urgency show daily signs of what looks like a UTI, affects our social lives please help by signing this petition so that the government change the law so it is seen as a disability and not have to face court to appeal the DWPs decision that we don't need help. I am one having to appeal in court despite my condition worsening. Some sufferers of IC go into retention and are unable to urinate at all I am now fitted with a catheter.

Lets stand together friends, family, carers and sufferers.
