I always have to have something to drink whether I'm at home or out somewhere. Does anyone else have this problem?

I never was able to quench my thirst, especially when I was on dialysi. We were only allowed 3 cups of fluid a day. Thats 24 ounces!!! I carried alot of SF gumballs and SF cough drops and everytime I needed fluid I throw one in my mouth. Wasn't the cure but help the problems a little bit.

I do too! I don't leave home without it. lol.
You will find a bottle in my purse/car/house/anyplace I can get one.
I get dry mouth really bad.
I believe that mine is caused because of some side effects of the medications I'm taking.
If I don't stay quenched, I will be talking to someone and my teeth will start sticking to my lips. It's so embarrassing. I can just imagine what the other person looking at me is thinking. (Look at her, she looks like a smiling donkey.)(If those things start to drip ooze, run for your lives) etc.

LMAO! I just can picture that donkey!! LOL.
Sorry, I just had to say something, it was just too funny. I do have a vivid imagination.

Yes, I too keep water with me all the time. I find the chia seeds I drink do help me to not be so thirsty, but now that my numbers are lowering, I have to make sure I am getting the water I need.
Studys show that we are typically chronically dehydrated as a nation, and we often mistake thirst for hunger, thus some of or overeating issues.

So don't look at it as a problem, it is a great solution to keeping our bodies healthy and hydrated.
Drink UP!

I didn't realize how much truth there was to the whole body mistaking thirst for hunger…I have started to drink more water in the day, and I'm not having my bedtime munchies quite as much. IT used to be that I'd stand in the kitchen and just start eating like a pregnant woman…

Yes, I always have something to drink within my reach. during the day its water…or diet 7-up when I crave carbinization…at night when I'm relaxing it's hot herbal tea…

Wow, were exactly alike. I do the same. But for instants if my BG is Hi I could tell right away I can't quench my thirst.
