just passing the time..

i've had a rough couple of days health wise....i'm hoping to bounce back fully for tomorrow night's events : a 3 person show at the source on lake (in pasadena), and a group show at the i-5 (downtown). sure hope i can muster enough energy to act halfway normal.

all i gotta say is.....red stuff should NEVER come out of your pee pee. EVER. i've only had 4 or 5 urinary tract infections in my life, but this one took first place prize for pain. after each 'session' i checked the toilet believing i surely passed some sort of object : kidney stone, baby, basketball...

i'm not a fan of antibiotics, but all i could think was, 'gee, i'm so relieved i'm not a cave woman who has to suffer and possibly croak because of a little bacterial infection.'

i knew i was clearly out of my head the other day when the doc offered me pain pills and i declined. WHAT WAS i THiNKiNG?!!!

Yoweees!!

Is it gone by now?

I haven't even had a UTI but most girls my age have by now so I'm just wondering if I'll find out what all that is like sometime soon? I'll probably be a wimp about it.

If you refuse the pills, at least drink a lot of wine!?

i'm doing muuuuuuuuch better now, thanks. the antibiotics are dragging me down, but that's normal.

i was doing a little research on UTI's and it turns out 43% of women have at least one UTI in their life, so you might just be in the lucky half hol....let's HOPE.

just remember...if you EVER feel a burning sensation while peeing or an urgency to pee more than normal, go see your doctor, QUiCK. if it gets to the point of passing blood, the infection's spread up to your kidneys..which is BAD, BAD, BAD + 2. prevention is key, though. lots of water, cranberry pills, good hygiene, etc.

and the wine sounds great too, especially if it's cranberry flavored!!! ;D

Oh, how scary!! Yeah my friend just had this problem and she told me that the doctor told her not to ever hold it if she has to pee because the bacteria grows so rapidly and that is probably what happened in her case (she isn't having sex right now or anything). That sounded so creepy because I always have to hold it because I'm always busy and running around!

Oh noooo, I'd rather just find time to run to the bathroom. haha

As much as I drink coffee and lemon water all day, I'm always having to go and its sooo inconvenient! Sheesh!

Yeah, they have Chai Raweos too... I ordered them last night so I can't say if they're also as good, but those regular ones are soooo good, you'll love them!

Where do you get all of your foods by the way?

I go to Whole Foods like twice a week, and then I have bought some online from a few different places like naturaw.com, naturalzing.com and shopnatural.com

Are there any other good places to get natural foods?

i'm not totally vegetarian anymore, but i do like healthy...(gotta have salty ham once in awhile!) but, i generally shop at ralphs, vons, trader joes and whole foods..

i'm all about salads these days, and that kinda stuff you can find anywhere. thanks for all your links-the only thing remotely food like i buy online are seeds for my sprout maker. ;D

Yeah, see if I want ham, I always have to find one without all the nitrates and antibiotics and crap, and then I'm fine! If I eat the packaged stuff with added crap, I really feel it.

I don't know, I just got all sensitive to foods in the last few years. I can't even eat a whole piece of cake with icing without feeling like a truck ran over me!

I'm glad there are 3 Whole Foods stores near enough to me!

They do have good ham without anything added, and its sooo good in a salad with purple onions and a little ranch!

amen sistuh! i hear ya..

i'm finally buckling and seeing a doctor in the next couple weeks...hopefully to discuss possible allergies, etc. i think you're on the right track though, eating as fresh as possible. it's the additives and chemicals and crap that seem to throw a lot of people off whack.

Yeah and I'm realizing how toxic it is for us and we don't really realize it... but you can tell a difference if you go without it for a while.

What made you decide not to be vegetarian anymore? That's a huge step!
