I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun these things are :’) When I got my first kidney stone, I had gone to an Urgent Care clinic close by, and they thought that my appendix had burst just judging from my symptoms and how much pain I was in. They then called my wife to come pick me up and take me to the hospital, where it was later discovered that I had a 3mm kidney stone lodged in my ureter. And I’ve had 5 more since then. Ugh.

A lot of it was my own fault. Kidney stones can be hereditary, but I sure didn’t help things out at all. When I got my first one, I had been drinking a LOT of coffee. For a long time really, as my sleep habits were awful and a constant barrage of caffeine and sugar were what kept me going. I started to cut down down on the amount of coffee I was drinking, as well as up my intake of actual water to try to help keep everything going well, because I noticed that every time I had passed a stone, I hadn’t drank much at all the day before and was pretty dehydrated. So yeah.

Cut down on the coffee and drink more water, FOR REAL. THOSE THINGS ARE AWFUL. I haven’t had any in several months now, so hopefully I’m done with that awful stage.

So hey now that I’m back to making these comics, would you like to help me continue making these comics? Well now you can, by supporting me through Patreon for as little as $1 a month. Creating comics takes a lot of time and commitment (physically, mentally, and financially), so any little bit helps. Thank you so much for reading, and see you on Friday!
