To Pee Or Not To Pee?!

Yeh, this is a post all about piss, pee, wee, whatever you want to call it and whatever makes you more comfortable. So since my last relapse a few weeks back my whole peeing mechanism has not been the same, no I never knew we even had a peeing mechanism either, well, you know what I mean!

Whilst on my steroids and over the recovery period, all my muscles ache so bad, even the slightest touch hurt so bad but the worst thing was my bladder, every single bloody time I went to pee, my bladder refused to listen to my head and it was mega owchy the more I waited, I’m guessing that’s because I was pushing the old bladder against its will.

Who knew going for a simple piss could be so very complicated?

Its the same with the old bowel when on the roids, having a poo is literally like running a marathon, you would think I would shut the door at times like this.

Anyway, more recently things have got better, but in true MS fashion my bladder still likes to bend the rules and ignore the old brain from time to time, not emptying fully and then sneaking out the last little bit when you least expect it, thanks for that bladder, which makes going to the toilet an incredibly surprising experience.

Surprising in the way that I am 23 AND surprising in the ‘oh shit didn’t expect that kind of way‘.

Giving my daily life that extra, well, edge?!

Well, I guess I need to give the old pelvic floors a bash and see if that helps, really do not need my bladder emptying after pulling my trousers back up, now that would be an interesting story. Maybe I will still to the maxi dresses for now?

  1. Oh, that sounds so horrid, bless you!

    I must admit that I find your honesty on your blog posts so helpful in beginning to build up an understanding of the impact MS has on your life… I mean, I can guess but it’s only when you’re this honest that other people get a real glimpse of the true extent conditions like this affect your life! You know me, I’m all for openness and honesty, I think it is a) good for your soul, b) fantastic support for those going through the same/similar things and nodding their head throughoit your post in agreement and c) raises much needed awareness. So kudos to you for writing your blog and sharing your world xxx

    How are you doing since BritMums… I hadn’t had chance to read your blog before we met so I am trying to catch up now 🙂

    1. Bless you, I cannot believe you came over and commented!! Thank you!!!! For the comment too. Sometimes the openness of it all puts people off, but people love living in the dark, its easier so I share it all! I am okay needed so much rest!!! Start treatment next week so hoping for it to get better!!!!! So looking forward to hanging out next year!!! xxx

  2. Thanks for sharing this and raising awareness. You have so much to deal with, but I’m sure this must be hard because of the worry of accidents and to owing accidents aren’t socially acceptable! 🙁 I have IBS and my life is ruled by the toilet a lot of the time, so I have a tiny bit of understanding of how you are feeling.

    1. Thank you for the supportive comment! I know that feeling, yes not the best conversation starter!!! Hugs and thank you again xxxx

  3. Have you asked your neurologist for any medication to help? My bladder is the one thing that annoys me the most but I now take 4mg of Tovias every day and it has honestly changed my life!! No more dashing at the last minute or frantically searching for toilets when out & about. Hope you get sorted soon x
