Get Out Your Violins

Sorry folks but this is going to be a boring post. I am not feeling well and I am stuck at work. I think I have a urinary tract infection and I am exhausted. Like, new mommy tired. I've been going to bed late and getting up early and it's starting to take a toll. Anyone ever had a UTI? What can I do to get rid of it?

This weather isn't helping. It's been raining in my neck of the woods for the past 4 days. I really hate the rain. It puts such a damper on my mood.

Since there's not much to see here, you can check out two new posts on Lollipop. You'll find a list of toys I hate and 5 reasons I'm totally uncool.

Get thee some antibiotics! They work fast. (Lots and lots of cranberry juice is good, but the old amoxicillin is better.)

Not being a fan of 'Big Medicine' I do have to agree this time. Medicate, Medicate, Medicate!!

Yeah, if it's really an infection, you're gonna have to go to the doctor. But, you can drink a lot of water and cranberry juice to help ease the discomfort until you get in to the doc. btw, cranberry juice sucks, so you might wanna get cran/apple or cran/grape, they work just as well! I prefer cran/grape!! Hope this helps!!

Feel better, my friend. UTI's suck. Cranberry juice, medicine (if necessary) and lots of rest is the only real way to get rid of them.

Ditto on cranberry juice...there is an OTC medication available but if it is truly an infection you need an antibiotic. Hope you feel better soon! (are you sure you are not prego?) ;)

Antibiotics, gallons of pure cranberry juice, and lots of good yogurt. Hope you're all better soon!

I hope you'll get well soon. As my husband always says "when Mommy's sick, the whole system breaks down!" Ah so true!

And thanks for the tip on the cranberry juice ladies, never knew it has such healing power.

I hope you feel better soon. It does sound like a UTI, although I've never had one make me that tired before, but everyone's body is different. Whatever is wrong with you, drinking lots of cranberry juice and water will most likely help until you can see a doctor.

Feel better! And get thee to a doctor for some antibiotics...

A little slow on the uptake, but CRANBERRY JUICE and a trip to the Doc will have you feeling tip top in no time!

Another vote for cranberry juice!

Feel better soon. New mommy tired and a UTI -- double sucky yucky.

I was going to use the words "cranberry" and "juice"...but methinks that's already been said once. Or twice.

Get better soon!! :)

if it's a UTI (for me, i had a great urgency to pee all the time when i had it), then definitely anibiotics... they work really well!!! (I'm not a huge fan of meds either, but antibiotics get rid of it fast!) i feel repetitive, but drink lots of fluids to flush it out and yeah, i take craberry tablets (OTC). oh, another tip: urinate after sex (trust me on this one).

Brenda said...

Everyone's right about the antibiotics -- it's absolutely necessary. They'll also give you a sort of pain med to make you feel better right away. There's an OTC version called Azo Standard and it works but it only treats the symptoms. You still have to get antibiotics to cure it.

Good luck. UTIs are NO FUN.

I hope that you feel better soon. UITs are no fun!

Yup...cranberry juice works wonders...I prefer the cran/grape myself, it tastes much better and works just as well.
