    One Of Life's Unsung Priorities

    This is not a unique experience.  If you'll pardon the tongue stuck in my cheek (I mean my own tongue, folks), I'd say doing this -- getting up to use the washroom -- is preferrable to the vast majority (I know there are exceptions, even here in E.P.) than the alternative...

    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.

    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.

    Several Times a Night

    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...

    I normally stay up all night (until the sun rises again), I like to sleep around 5 am or whenever the sun rises. But I also like to wake up when the sun rises -_-; What a dilemma.
