I'm another one who at the worst, had nothing. But, then once I could start drinking, it reallly changed quickly.
STRAWS were really helpful for getting more fluids in me.
My one constant - Things had to be COLD for me. These are ways to make that happen:
- Take 5-7 icecubes & crush in blender. Add just a small amount (A few tablespoons) of either Vitamin Water, Juice, Soda, etc. (We had bought a ice shaver, but found the blender did MUCH better)
- Frozen Mugs in the freezer.
- Summer time fluid filled mugs frozen in the freezer
- Extra ice cube trays
