Maybe TMI but I was in the little boys room at work the other day and this guy came in doing his thing at the urinal, and I can hear it (no ladies, contrary to popular belief, boys do not look at other boys doing their thing!!! ) anyway I can hear it coming out like a waterfall gushing and gushing for what seemed like ages. It *sounded* like he put out a litre or more! I suddenly felt so.... well... inadequate!!
btw it occured to me after I went to bed to add that of course even if we don't pee we still lose around 500ml of fluid a day in sweat, so it's not quite correct to say that if you're not passing that everything you take in stays there - just most of it.Thought I'd add that for completeness.
I sometimes wonder if my reduced urine output is a consequence of fluid restriction. If I were to spend a convivial evening in the pub, supping several pints, would I urinate a greater quantity? Or would the dialyser have totake off several liters?
I know deep in my heart he is not going to live much longer. It probably won't be many months left because he just doesn't care. I just need support for ME. If he asks for help, I'll give it. other than that he's on his own. I have spent the last 12 years putting my life aside and it's totally time for me again.
