UTI It Is.

I have Cipro for the UTI and a gallon of Cranberry Juice Cocktail. I feel like I have to go to the bathroom all the time and it feels like there is a heavy weight on my pelvis, my lower back hurts with a dull pain. I guess I will be resting at home for a while. Ugh! I haven't had this much lower back pain in years. Nothing makes it feel better.

Me: I'm taking two tablespoons of vinegar in a 16 oz glass of water.
Doctor: Why!?
Me: Because the internet said so.
Doctor: Pshaw! The internet says a lot of things!
Me: Well, it couldn't hurt.
Doctor: Vinegar! Yuck!

I also managed to talk my doctor into giving me the prescription for Valium, against her better judgement. I think my explanation of "once a month I want to die" is what convinced her. That and I'm on the maximum dose of Effexor, so we can't go any higher on that. We shall see. I'll keep them on hand for emergencies. I don't really have an addictive personality. I don't drink alcohol, coffee, or tea on a regular basis, I have never smoked, and I have never exhibited drug seeking behaviors before. I showed no tendency to abuse Vicodin when I was proscribed it in the past. At 47 years old I'm unlikely to suddenly become a junkie. When I had Valium for my root canal it made me giggle.

I am also scheduled to see a hand surgeon next month about the Mucous cyst on my right index finger. It's been there a while but it has started hurting.


[cheering] U T I! U T I! [/cheering]

Glad it is something simple and treatable and not the plague or something.

I don't see you becoming a junkie any time soon, either.

La la!

I'm glad it's something that will clear up easily.
Before today it was just frequent urination, and dark urine, but after I got back from the doctor my lower back started hurting and I have been lying around moaning aver since. I hope the back pain goes away by tomorrow. It's making me miserable.
As I was listening to Kevin&Ursula on the way to work this morning, it occurred to me that (a) sekanjuban might be a good way for you to drink vinegar if you want to keep it up, and (b) the beverage they were trying was essentially a honey-based sekanjuban without the mint, albeit a seemingly poor sekanjuban.
