Naughty nighttime terrors

If there is one thing most people find annoying, it’s having to pee in the middle of the night.

You know how it goes. You wake up in the middle of the night. It’s pitch black dark outside, yet you’re a bit worried. Because, you don’t feel properly rested yet. Maybe you’ll have to get up soon to go to school or to work? You haven’t checked what time it is yet. The only thing you know for sure is that you’d absolutely love to sleep more. Because you feel that you really need it.

So, you check the time.

Oh, what a joy. It’s only 2:30 AM, and you have literally the whole night left. You will get your much needed beauty sleep.

Everything is good.

At least so far.

You flip the pillow over to the cold side so that you’re not killed by the temperature and you then relax.


As you attempt to relax and sleep, you can feel how your bladder literally is filled up to the rim. It’s like a bucket or a container of water that’s so overloaded, it’s about to leak. Like a balloon that’s going to burst. And it pushes on you down there. You have to pee. You really have to pee, but you don’t want to get up and visit the restroom, because then you have to turn on the lights and that means your eyes will have to get used to the darkness again.

And even if you were to just pee in the dark without turning on the lights and disregard washing your hands, like so many people do, that won’t do things much better.

Because you still have to get physically up from the bed.

It’s really annoying.

But what’s even more annoying is, if you don’t go to the bathroom now, you may not be able to sleep again.

Despite feeling so tired, so discombobulated, so weak, you have to take a leak.

There’s just no way around it.

At the very least it doesn’t hurt to pee.

At least not yet.

Because, a lot of people who have chronic pain disorders struggle with a full bladder in the middle of the night. For some reason, they just have to pee a lot. Doctors still don’t exactly know what causes this urge to pee, other than that some people have a considerably higher urine production than others.

What does it help you, though?

You just want to sleep.

Every day you’re in deep pain, and your wrists that have started to swell and hurt, prevent you from training properly. So you have actually put on a bit of weight lately because you cannot work out the way you used to do.

That, and the nightly restroom visits are really taking their toll on your health and happiness.

All of a sudden you can’t sleep properly.

CBD oil doesn’t necessarily cure your insomnia right away, nor will it reduce urine production. However, it may relieve you from your daily pain flares that you get throughout the day so that you’re actually able to pretty much live the life you did previously. And who knows, if your pain goes away, then maybe your urine production lowers and your insomnia gets cured?

Maybe, maybe.

You really don’t know.

All you know is, if you don’t do something about your situation, nothing is going to change.

Problems don’t go away by themselves.

Unless you believe in miracles.

And even then, those kinds of miracles really don’t tend to occur too often.

If you struggle with nightly pee breaks that interfere with your sleep and you also have chronic pain issues, then I’d personally say it’s settled.

Get some CBD oil and start trying out.

After all, you’re the Master of your own Life.
