    One Of Life's Unsung Priorities

    Most Of The Time...

    I too am one of those who wakes up to go most nights... but on some nights, unfortunately, I don't wake up in time. I've always had an under-developed bladder and I generally need to go within 2 to 3 hours (give or take) of falling asleep. If I don't wake up and go at that...

    I Enjoy A Night

    I enjoy a night when I don't wake up to go to the bathroom as it gives you a decent rest instead of an interupted one.

    Very Annoying!

    It doesn't matter whether I drink water before bed or not, I still wake up several times in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Sometimes I don't even want to go that bad, but my mind just wakes me up for some reason. Weird reason. The only time when I may not wake up...

    Almost Every Night

    I have been told, not to drink two hours prior to bedtime and I find this hard cause I'm always thirsty.  By drinking, I wake up since I need using the bathroom.
