MY NAME IS Ros Bruce
And at the time I was 42, living with my partner and 3 children aged 6, 15 and 17. It was the summer of 2010, and I had urgency, though a UTI and having to drink more. The weeks went on and I remember going for a wee at a friend’s house and thinking to myself ah that smell is here too but didn’t give it much more thought.
Eventually unknown to me, once I’d been for a wee the smell was becoming stronger I must have been used to it now, but my partner then urged me to go to the doctor.
I’m not one for going to doctor and put it off.
Anyway, one day in October I wet myself 3 times and so made an appointment with the doctor, yeah it’s a UTI so I left with antibiotics and my urine sample was sent away for testing. This was Tuesday and by Friday I was still no better, going for a pee every 5 mins. I phoned the Doctor for results… no infection, so antibiotics won’t work. Was told to come back next week for more tests… next week!!! I’m going to be lucky to get through the weekend…
