I have a drinking problem.
But probably not the kind you are thinking of…
Because I have a condition called interstitial cystitis, also known as painful bladder syndrome, I can’t drink a lot of things that most people do.
Some, like coffee, are not a hardship for me to not drink because I don’t really like them. Same with black tea.
I do wish I could drink green tea, though. I can drink some herbal teas.
Soda and other carbonated things are no-nos!
Fruit juices are problematic as they are too acidic. I need to dilute them or take pills to counteract the acidity.
I do drink milk sometimes, but have had to give up one of my favorite drinks, hot cocoa, as chocolate is another irritant.
What I drink most of the time is water.
Which is safe, but a bit boring.
Wells do bring us water…
(And, for the record, I don’t drink alcohol.)
