Urinary incontinence, in the form of nocturnal enuresis (urge to urinate at night), entered in my life at the age of 34. It drastically affected my life quality, especially when it comes to sleep. I didn’t sleep and did not let others sleep.
I got up about three times to go to the bathroom, with a strong urge to urinate. My sleep was terrible, because it was constantly being interrupted. I was always waking up and could not properly rest. For a long time, I was unable to sleep long enough. I was exhausted, sad and angry.
But this was not the only consequence. The poor sleep quality caused by urinary incontinence changed my life. If did not only affect me. It affected my productivity and the relationship with my boyfriend. Because of me, he also was always waking up at night, unable to rest.
