    I think I'm dehydrated

    Try to drink tea, lemon water or just sip water I bought myself a large water bottle I fill it up twice daily
  2. My pain was gone after like day 3 I found it so hard to eat and drink so I lived off of sugar free jello .. ice chips,, broth from wonton soup .. I sometimes regret it because I’m a single parent and broke so It seems like fish and other expensive foods I can’t afford I couldn’t even buy my vitamins the first month..

    Trouble drinking

    I would always have ice water with me and sugar free popsicles ... I felt like I was dying of thirst literally .. I also put water bottles in the freezer then when I’m on the go they defrost in the car I sip them .. but now I can chug four three months out

    To tell or not to tell

    I started telling friends and family and then I realized the friends I told were a mistake because they will then tell everyone ... I felt some animosity from them making jokes and comments .. I also feel like my family sees it as I took the easy road .. so now I tell no one and I don’t post on social media

    Any regrets

    Awesome! Remember to have sugar free jello on hand it saved my life cause I was thirsty could hardly drink water .. and make your protein shake ahead of time drink like 4 oz when u can ..
