Young mother whose obsession started when she was just two years old drinks up to 44 pints a day

Sasha Kennedy, 26, carries large bottles of water with her wherever she goes and rarely sleeps for more than an hour a night without waking for a drink.

Experts yesterday said Miss Kennedy’s condition was rare, with the average adult drinking little more than 200ml of water per day. Dr Emma Derbyshire, a nutrition consultant, said: ‘Over-hydrating with any fluid is possible and in extreme cases it can be dangerous, but this is very rare.’
Miss Kennedy, who is a full-time mother to Reggie, two, and Fraser, one, developed her habit when she was just two years old. She began nagging her parents for more water, which prompted them to take her to the doctors

I wonder what the doctors say, i hope they have already scanned her brain. Poor woman even if she is used to it already it must be hell. And her kidneys must be suffering as not to mention the bladder and everything else. I highly doubt that this is psychological somewhere in her brain the part that decides when you thirst is satisfied must be damaged.

Well, this may be tacky but, that photo proves drinking water won't make you skinny lol,

Part of me wonders how much of this story is real and how much she is stating to get attention.

What's with the pictures? Are they just "glamming" up whatever is "off" with this woman?

It's obvious there is a mental and/or physical issue at work here. The article is tacky.

It was in the article "She is forced to go to the toilet up to 40 times every day ".

Wow, if she uses it for like 2 minutes thats almost an hour and a half each day just to urinate. And she wakes up like every hour when she sleeps too just to drink more and use the bathroom!

40 times is a lot....cripes! It is best that she just wears a catheter the entire day so she can be most productive working...if she works (that is the real question).

The article says that she quit some of her jobs in the past because of the quality of water they had on tap


On another note, I don't really see how this is breaking news

I was pretty shocked to see that the woman was overweight. I was expecting to see a more slim looking woman.

How does she not die from overhydration
She is offsetting her pH (possibly, depends on what she drinks) and is most definitely losing essential salts and vitamins through all that urination.

At a first glance..this cannot be real. That much water isn't compatible with human physiology.
