Whether it's come from stress. Whether it's come from not finding time to drink enough water. Wherever it's come from...I've been cursed in the middle of all my chaos with a nasty urinary tract infection. The cure is almost worse than the curse. Antibiotics and I don't have a very happy relationship. But what needs to be done needs to be done and I'm on my second day of feeling better and crummy at the same time.
I met a wonderful internet friend named Esther yesterday who drove all the way down to Portland from the Tacoma area so we could meet before I head off for Michigan. We spent a couple of hours over breakfast at lunchtime, saying hello....getting to know each other....and saying goodbye in one fell swoop. I wasn't feeling the greatest and when I told her about my infection she told me she'd read some home remedies for various maladies and she knew urinary tract infections had been mentioned in it. She said she'd look it up when she got home and send it to me, which she did. And you can bet from now on I'll have Alka-Seltzer on hand:
Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly -- even though the product was never advertised for this use.
