Summer, it’s a season most people love. For me, I love it when it’s not too hot out, so maybe I like spring better and the beginning of summer. I used to like summer until it took a toll on my health. One time when I was going to see my doctor, I felt awful. I didn’t understand why I felt so good the day before and horrible the day after. Another time, I went to the pool with my friend and 4 hours later I was down for the count. I learned from my doctor heat gets to autoimmune people. I am someone who gets dehydrated so quickly. A new thing that happens to me is that I get super dizzy at random times or when I stand up from a sitting position. I didn’t understand why that was happening to me. My doctor suggested that I drink two gatorades a day (G2 for me cause I like cutting calories). He said he is not a fan of salt tablets so this was an alternative so I could be on one less pill.
The gatorade has been life changing for me (this is not an ad and I was not sponsored I swear). This dizziness has mostly gone away, and I am way more hydrated then I have been in a while. Today is one of the hottest days where I live and I have to be prepared because the hottest days are some of my worst days. Right now as I write this, my head hurts and I am pretty dizzy sipping on my first gatorade of the day. On the hottest days, if I am outside (even at the pool) I have to drink a gatorade an hour (isn’t that crazy?!). But today, I’ll probably have to do that indoors since I’m pretty dizzy as well. I also have to drink as much water as I do gatorade so pretty sure I’ll be turning into water soon.
