Water. Why?!

Updated: Nov 8, 2022

So, I went to the doctor last week because I wasn't feeling well and I had some pain here and there. She tells me all of these instructions so that I can become pristine again. One of which I hate. Water. I need to up my water intake to 82 ounces a day, she says! That is outrageous to me. 82 ounces is a huge amount. But, my doctor is amazing and because of this, I told her I would try my best.

So I went home and installed an app on my phone that tracks my water as I drink it and it fills up the little cup to tell me how close I am to my goal. I get so excited about filling up the stupid cup that I drink more than I am required to! I am thinking in the back of my mind that I am doing a phenomenal job and my doctor is going to be so proud of me. However, at the same time, my bladder is pissed off at me!

Find out real quick with the result of raising your water intake is. You are also raising your bathroom frequency. It has now been a week and I don't think I have slept through the night at all. I wake up in the middle of the night because I have to go to the dam bathroom again. It is bad enough I get up at the butt crack of dawn anyway, but now I have potty breaks to add to it.

Tomorrow will be one week since I went to the doctor and there are still no results from the stupid bloodwork that they took. They are trying to figure out what is going on inside of my body. I need to call my doctor's office tomorrow and find out what the hell is going on because if I continue to drink water like this I may just have to end up wearing a diaper to bed. I'll tell you what, I am not against it if it will let me sleep tonight!

Ya'll have a good night!
