Water (feel like SpongeBob @ Sandy’s)

Why do I have such a hard time drinking water? I don’t mind water… I know I need it… I even want it, so why don’t I have it? I’m like SpongeBob in the episode where he goes to sandy’s when they first meet- “i don’t need it… I don’t need it”
Driving me mad.

I have ASD, amongst other things, but I'm assuming that my autism is why I'm struggling so much with hydration. I don't feel thirsty.. At all. I feel the effects of not drinking eg dry mouth headache etc but it ever computes to me to actively go and get a drink. I don't know why. I'm 27 now and I think my body is compensating for this alot less than it used to. I'm on a high dose of meds too which causes severe sweating. I've been trying to drink more but the most I've been able to drink so far is still only half of what someone of my age and weight should drink in a day. In reality I probay drink less than a thord of what I should. Add on the ridiculous sweating of be surprised if I replaced the water Iost sweating. I think now I have a UTI as well, and my stomach "where my galladder is, is hurting, really hoping it isn't gallstones (both UTIs and gallstones can be caused by dehydration) . Is there anyone that has any ideas or tips on how to get more hydrated? #dehydrated #Aspergers #Autism #Autism #ObsessiveCompulsiveandRelatedDisorders


My moods

Wednesday i was very depressed i still am a little. I was in the ER for bloating, constipation, low urine output, lack of energy, bad headache. Hadn't had a bowel movement in 2 weeks. Clearly i was very #dehydrated . Still trying to rehydrate and eat enough. Not quite up to exercising just yet, but trying to put my chemistry homework into a Word document so I can turn it in. I've notified my professor and he let me take the test for Chapter 3 on wednesday; the rest of the class will take it monday. My head still is hurting, so am still resting, not up to exercising yet.
