You're Not Alone
Many people have experienced waking up from a dream of going to the bathroom to find that they've either gone, are going, or really have to go. For most, this is a one-time occurrence and it's nothing to worry about. If this is a repeated problem, however, you should seek help. It's not the dream that's causing the accident, it's the fact your body isn't waking up to its need to urinate.
My Experience With Bedwetting Dreams
I was walking upstairs and felt my nightgown against my body. I was warm, surprisingly so for wintertime. My bare feet were not even cold, and usually it's freezing in the house. I made my way to the bathroom where I proceeded to do what all humans do. I peed.
Ahhh, sweet relief....
What the hell have I just done! I'm peeing! I'm peeing in my bed, and I can't stop! Holy crap, this is crazy!
Apparently, the scenario was just a really vivid dream. So much so that I actually let loose in real life. So now here I am, jumping up out of bed, feeling the warm urine turning ice cold on my pajamas, and a big ole steamy stain right on my brand-new mattress.
I know, I'm disgusting, I'm vile...some would even say a sinner. I pissed the bed.
I have never been a bedwetter. Who the hell wets the bed at 26 years old? I had never in my life woken from my sleep to find myself pissing all over the place. There had to be an explanation for why I did what I did.
I took my case to dream books. I wanted to find out what dreaming about peeing meant. Answers were provided (it turns out that dreaming that you are peeing is a sign that relief from a difficult situation may happen soon), yet no book had the answer to why I dreamt I was peeing, and then actually pissed.
The only logical answer I could come up with is that my body knew I had to go, thus the dream. I did have to go, but unfortunately I didn't wake up in time to actually go. The dream of seeing the toilet and relieving myself started the urination process.
