My special dream

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.......
