    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

    A few years back I ended up in the hospital

    with what seemed to be appendicitis. It turns out that it was an ileus. That means my ileum, the last section of my colon had collapsed. It corrected itself. I had a lower GI and all was fine. What caused it. No one could tell me. After 3-4 years of chronic UTIs I got curious...

    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...

    I last posted about it like a week

    or so ago. It was definitely fine since then now it feels like I do today, definitely mildly. But, still unpleasant and I don't know what would've happened to make that occur. I took another one of my old prescription pills for it though, so I would really hope that'd help. I'm...

    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!
