Doing something about UTIs (and urinary incontinence.)
Here’s what works for me:
- Not wearing tight clothes
- Avoiding caffeine
- Avoiding carbonated drinks which can irritate my bladder
- Avoiding self abuse
I told a school nurse that sometimes I leak and I just tell myself I’ll drink more water. She said “When you leak you need to go to a restroom.”
That problem is called urinary incontinence. I still try to follow her advice. One way to look at is if some urine is leaking out there’s a lot more where it came from. Hope this wasn’t gross to hear about.
