After you read what I'm about to tell you, you're probably going to think I'm nuts. I assure you, I am only slightly nuts!
I told you that I have 2 liters of TPN running over 12 hours while I sleep. Well that creates a lot of urine and I have to get up every couple of hours or so. It's just how it is. I have been doing this for 6 years now. Most of the time, I wake up on my own but my mind has figured out a way to get through to me if I don't.
My mind creates a scenario in whatever I am dreaming about at that moment and inserts a scene where I am peeing. I am so not kidding. Last night, I must have been sleeping hard and didn't wake up on my own. I remember in my dream that I had climbed up on this thing and it had a bucket like object there filled with ice water. (hey I don't claim to know what the hell all the details mean!) I remember emptying some of the water and sitting on the bucket and peeing. I also remember that after I was done, it had spilled over. I took that to mean that if I didn't wake up quick, I was going to wet my bed.
I woke up. It really doesn't matter to me if you think I am making this up. I know the truth and I have no idea how my mind came up with this way to get through to me while I am sleeping. But I have to admit, the body and mind are freaky things. I am grateful that my mind does this for me. I certainly don't want to wake up in a wet bed!
I thank you, my special dreams.......
