I peed the bed the last night but I'm too old to be peeing the bed now!!!
Question Posted Saturday March 13 2010, 11:38 pm
This is embarrassing but I'd like some advice on it, I suppose. I'm an adult, by the way, not some 10 year old.
Three nights ago I was laying in bed. I was VERY, VERY tired and had really had such a long day. I was so incredibly wore out that I drifted off to sleep within seconds of my head hitting the pillow. Four hours later, when I was deep into my dreamland, something very unhappy happened.
I was dreaming that I had to pee very badly. I was trying to find a toilet in my dream. I was on a boat, rocking back and forth, and there were so many people around. I felt yucky on the boat but I had to GO! I was afraid I was going to wet myself in front of the crew members but, luckily, I found a restroom in the center of the ship. I sat down and began to urinate. On. Myself!
I felt the warmth of the pee on my legs and got scared and woke up from the dream. I thought at first maybe I just got startling THINKING I had peed myself but...the sheets were wet. It's REALLY embarrassing. I'm a grown adult in my 20s. I shouldn't be peeing the bed any more.
I'm not sick. I don't have any bladder problems or urinary tract infections. I haven't had an accident since I was like 8 years old at the oldest. I don't know why I "went" on myself! I don't know if I should see a doctor about it or not since I can't really figure out what may have caused this. I know adults don't do this and I don't know if I could admit it face-to-face to somebody anyway. :\
I'm mortified and now very afraid it's going to happen again!
So, I had an accident on the bed that night but I'm a grown adult now and shouldn't be having issues like that. What's wrong with me?!?!

I believe this was just a once in an adult lifetime accident, probably triggered by your dreams which everyone knows can sometimes be very tense and real. I don't think it will happen again or you need to worry! Everyone has accidents. [ Pocahontas06's advice column | Ask Pocahontas06 A Question ]

But here is the thing, alot of people dream that they pee in their dreams but it doesn't usually happen really outside the dream, except maybe with really old people or with children, so with you it was either something that just happened once in a life time, or its something else and that's what you will consult the doctor about, but really don't worry till you consult someone ,and it was probably nothing, i know how bad this must feel.

But yeah it could be that you jus drunk to much or like me when I drink drank alot and I get realy tipsy some times that happens.
But to help the problem go to the bathroom before you go to sleep.
Hope I helped
