Drink Your Water

Last night I passed a kidney stone, a result of the fact that it is drier nowadays, plus I loathe drinking water: water is tasteless and therefore I never really liked it.  It was very painful.  In fact, I have been told that the pain level is comparable to giving birth.  I don't know if this is true, but for certain I was glad to have my extra Vicodin from all of the other times I passed kidney stones. 

The thing is, I should have seen this particular kidney stone coming: recently I had a really bad breakout on my face.  Pimples showed up where they had never dared go before.  On top of this, the skin on my elbows and heels was itchy because it was so dry and flaky.  It also didn't help that I was exercising everyday in this condition, sweating and losing even more water from my body.

Why am I telling you this sad story of how I became dehydrated and formed a calcium ball that blocked the passageway from my kidney?  Well, to show you what happens if you don't drink water, silly!  If you don't drink water, it won't just hurt your skin and change your appearance.  Not drinking water affects you negatively on the inside.  Seriously, bad things happen to people who don't drink water, like me. 

So let's learn a lesson from my mistakes: Drink your water!  And since it's drier nowadays, this means that you will have to drink more water than usual.  If you are careful about your water intake, you will be beautiful and well, both on the outside and on the inside.  Good luck, and try not to make my mistakes!

My Gosh! I am sorry to hear this. Hope you are okay now.
But yes, I agree! Drinking water is not only important for your body, it's good for your skin too. Hope you are getting your water on now. And so will I. Thanks for the reminder!
