31 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 11

I stopped __________ at age ___ …

I really don’t like giving away this secret but I didn’t stop wetting the bed until I was ten. I think it was more like nine but very close to ten. It’s not a great feeling having to wake up and change the bed trying to hide the fact from my sister and parents. I don’t recall ever wetting the bed when cousins or friends spent the night so I was spared that embarrassment, however it still took a toll on my self esteem.

If I had the chance to tell someone, male or female, I would let them know bed wetting is something you can get over and sometimes it’s just because you are a deep sleeper or have a bladder that is smaller than normal. My parents would get upset with me and tell me I was just too lazy to get out of the bed during the night. Perhaps it is true for some kids but I was never awake when it happened. Boy, that would be lazy.

I don’t wet the bed anymore.
