Water, Water Everywhere and Not a Toilet!


Friday, December 07, 2012

I was out most of the day yesterday and I got very dehydrated. There was I time I would not have realized that I was dehydrated, but now that I'm used to lots of water, I need it all the time.

I drank about 12 cups before taking off, less than I usually drink in the morning. Heading to Bible study, I knew Sylvia had a friendly toilet and a cup of coffee for me. But leaving her house, I headed to my eye doctor, a 90 minute trip by public transportation [with no toilets in between!] So I didn't want to drink a lot on the way.

It didn't take long at the doctor's office [I'm fine], but then the trip back takes even longer, so only 16 ounces of water along the whole trip. When I got home I drank 16 cups of water even though it was only a couple of hours before bedtime. You can guess that I was up a couple of time during the night!

Today I feel better, but I'm staying close to home and drinking lots more water. Here's to your health!

    Makes me laugh. I can hardly walk a 5k without a bathroom break, because I drink so much water!
