    I definitely do again.

    Not terrible but, it's just horribly unwanted and ironic. I decided to take one of the old prescription pills I have and did. Hopefully that'll end up helping so that it feels gone and normal by the time school starts back. Have me in your good thoughts and prayers. <3

    Not at the moment and I'm not sure

    if anyone remembers my experience from months ago about it. It was my first experience and reason that I joined the site. I had my last UTI around that time and the main reason I joined was because I was looking for someone that understood. It's a little embarrassing to talk...

    It seems like I actually might again.

    Not as terrible right now as before thankfully, mild right now. But, there has been the frequent kind of feels and a bunch of iffiness. It's depressing and stressful but, also kind of funny because it'd be due to my own stupidity. The douching I told about before. Once again...

    Clearing up- I guess I caught this UTI right in

    time before it got any worse! As soon as I smelt the ammonia I went get the cranberry juice and azo. Also drunk plenty of water. Def. cheaper than $80 for a doctor appointment!
