Dreaming of a Toilet

United States

Have you ever dreamed that you had to go to the bathroom really bad and think you are on a toilet? Then you wake up and find that you really thought you were on a toilet and barely make it to the bathroom or worse?

YEP! LOL I don't know if you have that commercial where you live about Good Nites pants for kids? Where the girl says, "....I start dreaming of lakes and rivers and ponds..." LOL - that's me. I dream about water in all forms and then get up running! I have to tell a slightly off-color but funny memory... when I was still living at home, there was one night that I was awakened by a big ruckus in the house. My mom was stomping and running around and so was Dad... although, admittedly, he seemed to be laughing a lot more than Mom was. She seemed REALLY mad. At one point, I heard her in the basement, starting up the washer! I was afraid to leave my bedroom LOL Anyway, as it turns out, Dad had been having a dream about "relieving himself" against a fence (as men have been known to do in the great outdoors, right?)... but... ummmmmm... he wasn't against a FENCE -- and Mom never forgave him for such a rude awakening ;)

I have dreamed of needing to go to the bathroom and then woke needing to go badly. I have walked in my sleep however not since I was a teen. Fortunately it does not happen very often and I am glad since you had to go you were in the right place for it.

I don't know how my partner and I got on this topic the other day...but we were just talking about this yesterday! LOL And I had to tell him to stop telling me about his dream because I feared that if he told me about his dream, I would dream it, and it would happen to me. So, thanks...not only is he putting that thought into my head...now you. ha ha

Oh yes, I sure have. I am 36 yrs old and I did this just about 8 months ago! LOL (Can't believe I just admitted that!). But, I guarantee I am not the only adult who has dreamed of being on the toilet and actually peed the bed. LOL

When I was younger I had a narrow euretha which meant my bladder could not hold much(basically).There were a few times when "worse" happened but it did not affect my growing up in any (^^*(_)*^%* way that I am $*%(_*&^$( aware of.

But I've never had bad experiences of not making it to the toilet..hehe...I wake up and then go...

I think this might be that you have drunk too much water before sleeping. Maybe it would be good practise to empty your bladder before sleeping. This might help you get an uninterrupted sleep. ;-)

I could stop drinking fluids hours before I go to bed and still need to get up in the middle of the night. It is called menopause. Gotta love Mother Nature!

I should stop laughing now,Nut I can't. I was just on the phone with my mother. We laughed so hard till we both had sore cheeks. I was sleeping so hard the other night. I was dreaming of being in a public rest room. Now you all know how this bothers me. So I went to use the bathroom in a bush. The problem was it was really my bed. I felt like a little woozy. LOL I sad am I wet,and went to get up. I was still wetting myself,all the way to the toilet. I told her I really need to get some help if this is old age. LOL She just laughed. The funny thing was when I told my friend the next day,and my daughter. She said mommie you peed the bed? I was still laughing.

Yes, it has happened to me before.. Maybe once or twice.. There was even one time that I dreamt I was brushing my teeth, and I spat out the toothpaste bubbles to rinse my mouth.. I suddenly woke up, and I realized I spat on my pillow.. It was pretty funny.. Hehehehe.. (n_n)

Luckily, my bathroom adjoins my bedroom but sometimes it is still a race to see if I can make it in time when I wake up and the need to go is that strong.

I had a couple accidents when I was younger when having that dream. It mostly happened on nights before a big event when I was nervous. As an adult I have had the dreams for no reason and wake up with JUST enough time to race down the hall (in the dark...bumping something on something HARD along the way) and make it to the toilet. I wonder if you had to go really bad and didn't have the dream if you would just wet the bed?

I would imagine that everyone has had this happen to them at some point or another in their life. As said before, if not then they are lying! I have dreamed that I was on the toilet and actually started going. I woke up a little wet. That only happened once. I have had dreams but have woken up in time. Now I don't think I have those dreams anymore. I am always up a couple of times a night. 'Til the nature of my illness. At least I can get back to sleep again.

Yes, it´s happened to me more than once, even though I avoid drinking a lot of water before going to bed. Until now I´ve always made to the toilet. (Barely), lol.
