MDJunction to me

aTinaL"To me, Mdjunction comes down to motivation. The support and information I have found here motivated me to take a very proactive stance regarding my illness. This led me to find medication and doctors that are giving me my life back.
More important than even the motivation, though, is the friendship I have found at MDJ. I have made some of the best friends of my entire life right here in this group. Even though most of us have never met, it feels as if we have known each other for years.
If Angels walk among us, and I believe that they do, most of them are here at MDJ.

I have not tried cutting out sugar, but know it would be good for me in a lot of ways. You might try honey in your tea if you make it at home - or unsweet with a spash of sweet, if at a restaurant. The caffeine proabably isn't doing you any good either. At least for me - caffeine increases frequency and cramping. When I'm having a lot of pain, I tend to drink water mostly.... I hope you feel better!
