I'm Drinking Too Much Water - Warning TMI

Monday, February 04, 2013

I normally drink at least 64 0z of flavored water at school and then can drink at least another 32 oz of tea at home. That is a lot of water! Especially during the school day when I can't always go when I need to so I hold it a long time.
Lately I have had a problem when I wake up.....there is no way to make it to the bathroom in time. My bladder releases as soon as I move to get up. Talk about a mess and not to mention the embarrassment. So I did a little research and found this article:

So yesterday, I watched how much I was drinking. Drank a lot less and guess what no problem at all this morning.

So today at school, I kept my intake under 16 oz. I will watch my intake tonight as well.

I am too young to wear Depends at night. I will drink what I need to to stay hydrated, but I need to break the habit of constant drinking! You could say that I am a water-lochic. I was most likely drinking twice what I should have been and my poor bladder just couldn't handle it any more.
