First off Ive already seen my doctor about this so Im not asking for medical advise, just
general/alternative advise. I used to wet the bed when I was a kid up untill I was about 9, but I grew out of it like most people do. For a couple of months when I was 19 I went through a spell were I would wet the bed sometimes when I went out, however, back then I used to take Extasy (I dont anymore and havent for years btw) so I just
put it down to the combination of the two at the time. Looking back though I do recall 1 incident at a family wedding were I wet the bed in the hotel we were staying in, and I hadnt taken an E that night so I doubt they had anything to do with it after all. It seemed to stop after a couple of months and up untill recently its only happend once in 10 years, that was Alcohol related and the most drunk ive ever been in my life, but in the last 2 months I seem to wet the bed about 1 out of every 3 nights I go out.
I have to work 1 weekend a month and I see my girlfriend every other weekend, we live in different parts of the country so our usual routine is she stays in my place 1 weekend and I pop up to hers the next, everything has been perfect for nearly 2 years. I dont know if it was luck but even though its happend a couple of times in my appartment, up untill last weekend its never happened when weve slept together, only when ive been on my own. But last weekend it did happen, to make matters worse it happened in her place and she still lives with her parents, my only saving grace was I didnt get any on her. She's totally cool about it, partly due to the line of work she's in but mostly beause she's very loving, but obviously Im sure she doesnt want to get pee'd on if we can avoid it. I was out drinking on friday while she was over and it didnt happen, she had to go home yesterday for a family thing so I went out with my mates last night and ... well .... it happened again.
Has anyone had any similar experience ?, it only happens when Im drinking and it doesnt even happen all the time but its happening enough that its becoming a problem. At first I put it down to drinking too much beer, and to be fair most of the nights it has happened ive been pretty wasted, but there was one weekend were I drank so much I couldnt remember stuff from the night before but woke up dry as a bone, then the next night all I had was was 6 cans (nothing in comparison to the previous night), remembered everything (even setting my alarm for work) and still woke up in a puddle of pee.
Would really appreciate if anyone has any tips, Im 29 and this has only started happening in the last 2 months, I just hope its a phase like the one I had when I was 19 and will go away after a while. Im a really bad sleeper and sometimes I used to avoid drinking because id wake up 4 or 5 hours later needing to pee and then not be tired enough to get back to sleep, now I wish my body would just do its bloody job!
