She then went into this long lecture about what can happen to your body from severe dehydration, and it AIN'T pretty!!! You lose electrolytes and potassium. That can be extremely dangerous. Now I eat a banana every day!! I also keep Gatorade in the house for a "just in case". I haven't had to drink any as of yet. It's sugar content is pretty high. So gals------DRINK THAT WATER!!!!!!

OH MY GOSH! NANCY! I'm so glad you are OK! That is so scary. And, honestly I think I've been close to that point in the last 6 months with the brain fog, weakness, etc. and I've gone the gatorade route and it does help. Thank you so much for posting this!

I'm getting serious about this right now!

big, big hugs!!!!
