For the past couple weeks I have been feeling badly dehydrated all day long. I'd say it was the dry winter air wrecking havoc on me, but I've never had this problem before. The upshot is that I am constantly drinking fluids, which means I can't stop peeing. I have to pee right now and I just went pee a half-hour ago. I'd run to the bathroom to pee, but I'd just end up having to pee again once I got back to my computer. So now I'm dancing in my chair with the hope that I can put off peeing for just a little while longer.
Except all this talk about going pee has just made things worse.
And now I'm back.
This would all be a lot easier if I just stood in the bathroom all day long while somebody kept me permanently saturated with Gatorade...
Or somebody just has to start manufacturing my Dream Bed with a Toilet...
Alas, I'm not going to hold my breath.
What I am going to do is reach for my water bottle since I'm parched again.
Drinking all this water is supposed to be healthy, but it sure doesn't feel like it when I have to go pee every 20 minutes.
Maybe it's time to start looking into those adult diapers after all?

You could be developing diabetes… not to scare you, but the sudden symptom of dehydration is something common in my family, and was always related to the development of diabetes type 2…. just something to check, if the symptom stays.
Yep. I had been tested before when I had some dizziness, but it came up negative. Will have to look into it again, because it was mentioned by a friend as a potential cause of dehydration too. 😛
If anything, getting to a doctor and presenting the problem might prove beneficial. I hope you get better soon. When I had to pee this much, I was pregnant, but seeing as you’re a guy I wouldn’t worry about that.
I was saying the same thing on Wednesday. I have been trying to drink more water, but my day involves going to the elementary school & waiting in line to pick up my son 40 minutes early so I can get in the front of the line, grab him, then be off to go to the high school to pick up my Eldest. Now, if I have to pee every 15 minutes…. that 40 minutes is torture!!!! I think I tweeted I wasn’t going to drink copious amounts of water anymore, no matter the health benefits.
Li’l Dave’s li’l tush is hilarious.
I peed so much yesterday. It was ridiculous. At least I have to walk up stairs to do it, and since I’m impatient and skip a step every time I’m walking up stairs (unless I’m in a dress), I get some exercise, too.
At least, that’s my rationale.
Try adding 1T of organic unpasturized vinegar (it looks couldy from the “mother” in it. Braggs makes the one I use) to the water you are drinking. It will not only help hydrate you longer but helps provide the vits and minerals your body is craving.
The adult diaper subject came up the other day when a few of us were talking about a million people in Times Sqaure for New Year’s Eve. I guess they would work for other times, too.
Unless you have a metabolic disorder driving excess urine production (diabetes, Cushing’s disease, thyroid disease, etc.) or unless your kidneys are just plain verkacht, peeing frequently is usually an indication that you are, in fact, hydrated. Under normal circumstances, urine production above a physiologic basal level is driven by water intake above that needed to maintain hydration.
Vahid and I have been drinking so much water everyday as part of our decision to be healthy and one of us is constantly going to the bathroom. We can’t even get through a show without pausing at least twice.
I pee all the time too. Like every 30 minutes it seems. Apparently drinking multiple Route 44 sodas a day doesn’t help me with that any.
Drinking more water was one of my only three resolutions. I can relate to this post. A lot. Like every 10 minutes.
Yeah I’d definitely get that checked if you’re drinking water like a mad thing yet still have crushing thirst. I drink a lot of liquids in a given day so I’m always going to the loo myself.
