I can't believe it actually happened but I wet the bed for the first time in about 35 years. Just a quick background, as a small child I wet the bed up to about age 4 1/2. I have no memory of bed wetting accidents after this, but I'm sure i had some.
Physically and mentally life has been a little challenging lately. I am out on work comp due to a work injury that has cause nerve damage mostly in my right arm/hand. I have had 3 surgeries to try and correct it but they have not worked. I have had a pretty stressful week, (as did my roommate) so Thursday evening we spent several hours drinking beer and playing backgammon. Normally if I drink craft beer and rarely have more than 2 since most of them range from 10%-15% APV. But that night I had 3 beers over several hours. (Eel River Blond Organic Ale 5.5% APV) I certainly was not drunk nor do I think I ever got a real "buzz"
My Work Comp Dr. recently changed up my meds (Combo of Anti inflammatory, Acid reducer, muscle relaxers, and sleeping meds.) I took my meds late in the evening since they should not be mixed with alcohol. ( I think I took them around 11:30 PM and finished my last beer around 9ish. I went to bed about 12:30 or so.
I had a very odd nightmare. I was hosting some sort of party, (we entertain a lot BTW) at my house, (but in the dream the house was nothing like mine,) My roommate was not there and somehow I didn't know anyone at this party. The party goers were necessarily rowdy, but they were comply making the place their own, moving furniture etc. There were even people I don't know in the bedrooms doing the same, making the place their own. At this point in my dream I began to panic as I was losing control of the situation. I hadn't yet checked on my room. (My room is MY private space since that is where my diapers are.) I walk in to find a large group of people, furniture moved around, and my stuff gone through.
At this point I am in a complete panic. This is also the point were I woke up in the middle of wetting my self. I was able to stop the flow but pretty much had a complete void. I tend to be a minimalist sleeper so I don't usually wear PJ's and very rarely wear diapers to bed. I was just wearing a pair of thin running shorts that night. The shorts, sheets (some very nice bamboo sheets I just got for my birthday) an mattress were soaked. Fortunately when I purchased my mattress I bought the top of the line one that has a removable pillow top and the main part of the mattress was still dry. So at 4:00AM I'm having to change sheets. I know many here fantasize wetting the bed, but I found it completely horrifying and humiliating.
After my roommate went to work morning I washed the mattress pad. Unfortunately it can not go in the dryer so I had to hang it on some C-stands in the backyard to dry. (I'm a part time photographer that's why I have them.) I had a very busy day planned and thought I had plenty of time to get back home before my roommate saw it hanging outside.
I left for my Dr. appointment, which always takes longer than it should. I mentioned the incident to him but he brushed it off as if it wasn't a big deal. He then sent me out for routine blood work which I had not planned on. I also told a friend that I would help her move stuff out of her storage unit so I had no time to go home. To make matters worse there is major roadwork going on in between the storage place in where I live, so a 10 minute drive turned into 1/2 hour drive.
A bunch of photo friends were due to arrive at my house and then go shooting for the evening so I had to text them to push their arrival time back. Luckily I got home just in time to grab the mattress pad off the stands and tossed it in my room just as my friends showed up and my roommate came home from work. (Normally it would not be a big deal having the pad outside trying because I wash it several times a year, but I had just washed it a couple weeks ago.)
Thank goodness we had a wonderful time shooting in an abandoned whorehouse so my stress levels went way down. I got home just after midnight. I wanted to test my theory that it was the meds or stress that caused me to wet the bed so once again I had a couple of beers took my meds and put on a Tena Slip Ultra just in case. I woke up dry with a full bladder so hopefully this was a one time thing.
Sorry this was so long. I just needed to get it off my chest and really didn't want to talk to friends about it.
