total frustration.

Welp, the cleanse is off. We did it for a week...and then yesterday I was diagnosed with my 3rd urinary tract infection in less than a month. I am miserable. It's painful, as well as exhausting, and is frustrating me beyond belief. I have a really rough few days, take the medicine, it clears, and then I finally get back into my own routine, only to be knocked down by another one. We had to nix the plans for our 10 mile run because I've been able to push myself to work out as hard. I'm not able to take care of the house the way I want to, or to take care of my husband the way I want to. I'm also struggling with trying to find the energy that I need to put into the store now that I'm manager. It's been a difficult few days.

Luckily, my husband is amazing and encourages me and makes me laugh even when I start bawling the minute he walks through the door. He's wonderfully supportive and picks up the slack around the house when I'm not feeling well.

I'm going to see some specialists in the coming weeks to figure out what is going on. Prayers are welcomed and appreciated....

I had the same problem and my doctor prescribed an antibiotic to be taken once immediately after having sex. It did the trick. I no longer have UTIs. You might like to ask yours about it.

Also, have you tried cranberry concentrate supplements, or drinking 100% cranberry juice (not cocktail...the really sour stuff from Whole Foods). Cranberry helps kill e coli, the usual cause of UTIs. Taking a few daily could help.
