Warning: Messy Diaper discussed in this post.
Today was an astronomically bad day. I can’t even fathom how I even pulled through today.
I woke up from feeling damp sheets. Great, my diaper had leaked from the small wetting the night before and my 8 month no-leaks streak was shattered, I thought to myself.
Then I realised that I had woken up horribly late. So I grabbed my shower things and headed to the bathroom.
As I pulled off my diaper, the mess within fell onto the bathroom floor. For those who do not mess, there is a difference in the way you pull off a wet diaper and a messy diaper.
And then it slowly dawned onto me as I started clearing up, that I had pooped myself in my sleep. I simply can’t recall what happened.
I then had to take a Grab, and I reached late, burning a hole in my pocket in the process.
And these things are not the worst things on the list, mind you. But I shan’t list the subsequent thread because it’s RL stuff. It was really emotionally exhausting, today.
Yeah, I began the day discovering that I had messed in my sleep. I have no idea what in the world caused this. I wasn’t unusually tired, I didn’t drink anything unusual before hitting the haystack at my usual time save for my usual 1 glass of water. I did get up to pee shortly after falling asleep, which has happened a couple of times before.
There are two scenarios that I think are possible. One – I had gotten up a second time to poop, or had pooped the first time I got up, but was too groggy to remember. Two – I really had pooped in my sleep.
I vaguely remember getting up to pee not long after. And that’s it. But what’s even more nuts about this whole poop fiasco is this.
I usually get up to poop my diaper at about 6am, before snoozing. Today I got up at 6am as usual and tried to poop. And I thought that today was one of the common days where I didn’t need to poop, so I sat down for a moment before climbing back into bed to snooze. I’ll come back to this moment in a bit.
Being a person who is pretty much a light sleeper and pretty much ultra-aware of my own diapered state, I’m pretty sure that I would reset my alarm to wake up earlier just to poop if indeed I had gotten up just to go. And even if I did forget to switch it off, when it rang I would have remembered.
That leaves us with scenario two. I really had my doubts on this one, because all these years, whenever I try to poop while lying down I gave up miserably, no matter the position. I just can’t go. So it’s just unlikely that my body can suddenly go, and I did not have any urgent feeling of needing to go.
But the thing that really suggests that it could be number two (mind the pun) is the aforementioned moment where I sat down after trying to poop at 6am.
For you see, I don’t like to sit down on my mess and squish it. Makes clean up unnecessarily difficult. So when I sat down, I vaguely remember feeling something wet and lumpy. At first I thought it was how this diaper felt when it was fully wet (I’m trialling a new diaper, will post a review soon). So I thought nothing more about it and curled up in my bed, making the diaper leak in the process. It was only much later that I realised just what made that texture.
It doesn’t definitively rule out scenario one, but given that it was an ordinary night and I was not very tired or ‘impaired’ in any way, I’d say that despite its unlikeliness, scenario two prevails.
Tl;dr : I pooped myself when I was asleep.
Luckily I was wearing a diaper.
