A few weeks ago, I found out the hard way that I had kidney stones. SUPER awesome. Right.
I went to the doctor. I thought I was going to be the youngest in the urologist’s office by about 30 years…then I found out that LOTS of people get them, not just older men like I thought.
My doctor has a great sense of humor… “Urine good hands” was on a sign just inside the door. Heh.
So folks, don’t be like me. This is what I learned from my doctor…
1. Drink more water. Drink more water, you idiot. (He didn’t say it like that, he was very nice… but I could see it in his eyes ;). )
2. Eat more fruits and vegetables because they help flush out your system.
Also, we should all go easy on salty food and soda but my main issues were needing more variety of green and drinking water….between nursing the baby this past year, bumping up the amount of exercise I was doing and just plain forgetting to take care of myself, I have been a total dope about water. Don’t be like me.
SO these are my resolutions for 2013 because I sure shootin’ don’t want to do that again. Ever.
