- I'm 15 and my mom has had IC with Adrenal insufficiency and Addison's Disease on top of it for 11 years. She's in chronic pain a lot and I feel totally out of control and helpless. I've hit my breaking point and I feel like I can't talk to anyone that really understands. (I'm also the only child) This is a last resort.. PLEASE email me @ saunnc@gmail.com I desperately need help. :(
