Is It Just Me?

I’ve had this post formulating in my head for a few days now, and nearly fell off my chair last night when I watched The Big Bang Theory and realized that this may be just me … and Sheldon!

Since I have kids (and a husband who snores like a banshee), I’m often woken up in the middle of the night. When that happens, I lie there and try to convince myself that I don’t have to get up and pee….trying to not think about the sips of water I’ve had before bed. But as soon as the word “pee” materializes in my head it’s over. I can try to convince myself that it’s ridiculous – I just used the bathroom an hour ago, or even just 20 minutes ago (yes, sometimes just 20, shoosh)…but it doesn’t matter. If I don’t get up and use the bathroom, I’m just awake for the next half hour playing games in my head about how I don’t have to go…and then I have to get up anyway.

And forget about it if I actually have to get up to see to one of the kids! As soon as my feet hit the floor it’s like a signal to my bladder. Again, even if I’ve just gone 20 minutes before!! If I’ve fallen to sleep between – it’s over.

Anyone else…?

  1. Yep. Every time. I bet there’s a word for this phenomenon. Then I have a hard time falling back to sleep.

    What’s worse? When my husband gets up in the middle of the night he always wakes me up. That bathroom needs a revolving door.

  2. Definitely get this. My kids still wake up in the middle of the night sometimes and usually we just let them cry it out. Most times, I then have to get up and go to the bathroom, but I don’t want them to hear me getting up. What to do, what to do? I end up getting up as quietly as possible and hope they don’t hear me.

    BTW-Love Big Bang Theory especially Sheldon!

  3. Oh yes, count me in!

  4. I have said for a long — there areonly 3 times when my kidneys are working — when I am lying down, when I am in the car, or when I am in a meeting.
