Certainly In My Case

I have wet my bed on and off all my life and have been back to nightly wetting for almost 3 years now. Some of us will always wet the bed. The best thing for me has been accepting this and stop trying to fight it. I was a chronic bedwetter as a child who became a purposful wetter during my teens, at first out of lasiness but then realised I was enjoying it. During my adult life I have had dry periods and periods when I have wet on purpose plus regular un planned wettings. Eventually I decided to hell with it and just set out to regress to full time bedwetting. My goal was to regress to my childlike condition where I wet every night without any control over it. This wasn't difficult for me. After a few weeks of wetting every night on purpose I was soon wetting in my sleep. I am so much more relaxed and genuinely sleep more soundly. I have wet sheets or soaking nappies to deal with every morning but I wouldn't go back to being dry at night now.

I have been a bedwetter all my life & wouldn't have it any other way.

Great story and can relate to so much of it. It is a long process, but I am also being returned to an every night bedwetting habit, that will mean soaking wet diapers or wet bed, and having to deal with it every morning. Being put back in my place for good.

Great to hear you are returning to being a bedwetter. Dealing with the wet nappies or a wet bed every morning is all part of the experience. I for one would never go back to being dry at night again. I love everything about being a bedwetter.

Thanks. Bedwetting has really always been there, even during the years I was Dry, but have never really have been able to completely escape or outgrow it. Have resisted much along the way, but more and more am accepting that this is a part of me, and always will be. I did not accept bedwetting as a boy and teen, so now am learning how to. Having to deal with it each morning is definitely part of the experience.

I think if you are meant to be a bedwetter fighting it will only make you miserable. I had many dry spells but always missed being wet and then while I was wet I felt guilty about it. Accepting you are always going to be this way and just getting on with it worked for me. I am happy being a bedwetter now.
