You all know I'm pretty much incontinent these days.

When Carrah and I took the bus to Perth, there was only one stop, two hours in.

Because of this, I didn't drink at all, because trying to use the loo on the moving bus is never ends well.

I didn't drink enough all weekend,  nor Sunday as we flew home. Definitely didn't want to use the plane's loo.

 

Anyway, my head has been weird as I have been trying to get my water intake up.

 

Weird, being sharp pains, numbness and obviously, headaches. 

 

Back to normal now.

 

Just wondering if anyone suffers if they are dehydrated.

Yes and in my case it lowers my BP enough to cause fainting etc. A side effect of now having a missing major brain artery.  I had food poisoning the other week and it made me very dehydrated even though I was awre of the issue and doing all I could to keep my fluids up I was not able to  and it took 3 days of Gastrolyte post the problem to get me back to normal.

 

Next time maybe consider an adult diaper or a catheter for the trip. I so understand not wanting to use the bus or plane loo.  Remember continence aids are covered in your NDIS consumables.
