Tid Bit Tuesday- Water, good ole’ H2O. I drink it, I drink a lot of it. A minimum of 64 ounces every day. I fill up a jug every morning, it makes it easier to gauge how much I have had during the day. I take a bottle of water with me every time I leave the house ( note I use refillable bottles, all BPA free) .
Those of you who have been my bloggy friends for a while know that I have P.V. also know as P. Vera which is short for polycythemia vera. I have several other health issues too. But, that would be T.M.I ( to much information) even for tid bit Tuesday. My oncologist /hematologist recommends drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated. P.V. patients are itchy all of the time. Our skin is dry, it cracks, and well, it is miserable. A lot of lotions and creams have aloe in them. It is a great healing agent. But, unfortunately, I am allergic to aloe…ugh. So I try and keep my body and skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using lotions and creams without aloe. I’ve tried so many and have yet to find one that really works well.
