Doing something about UTIs

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.

I write so my words and story can last longer than me. My name is Debrezion; I’m also known as Derezion, Dee or Azen. I always know where I am by what people call me. I enjoy church, using computers, and of course writing. I’ve been to Ethiopia twice. I was reared in California, USA but my parents are from Ethiopia. I’m lucky to be alive and I should thank God for that.
