Forget the sparking stuff maybe??? Drink good clean spring water. I don't touch that sparking something about the phosporous -- I'm very accustomed to plain clean water.

Yes, thanks. It didn't have content on the machine, but it was a tad bit hardly noticeable sweet. Not very sweet. In the future I will certainly be more careful.

TMI


Yes, do Kegels (both men and women)



Getting up at night is normal, just pee then go back to sleep

I have to get up several times in the night to urinate and it ruins my sleep.
Several years ago I asked my urologist what was the best thing to do concerning similar circumstances. He immediately told me it wasn't to hold back liquids. Far too many people are dehydrated for the sake of urinating less. He stressed that a well-hydrated person who may have to urinate at night sleeps generally much better than a dehydrated person does.

That seems reasonable. I was depressed today and so didn't get out of bed but kept thinking about drinking water. So as soon as I got up I did drink.

One of the easiest and most beneficial things we can do for our own health is to consume plenty of water each day. Everything works better if properly hydrated.

I believe that, which reminds me to drink some more water now. Even though it's bed time. Or should be.

Drink plenty of water during the day. A few sips before bed if you need to swallow medicine is all you need at night, if you're drinking enough all day long.

Thanks again.
I checked the side effects of erythritol which was added to the stevia packets (Truvia) I bought. And I see that erythritol is considered to have irritating effects for some. Then I checked another package of Stevia blended with cane sugar, and saw it also has erythritol in the ingredients, even though the cover says "Stevia and Cane Sugar." And some packages say, "and natural flavors." What does that mean? I will be more conscious of these things because -- I don't want the pain that may be associated with this.
