Am I the only one who gets really hungry right after emptying? I’ll try liquids as a snack before bed.
I try ignoring the urge to empty but either the cramping hurts so badly that I’m not sleeping anyway so I need to empty to stop the pain. Or it’s so full in the morning that I struggle to get the catheter in - causing more pain.
The only solution I’ve found is drugs - muscle relaxers, OTC sleep aids, etc., whatever to help me sleep through the urge. However it leaves me groggy in the morning and I know I can’t do that forever.
For those of you who struggle with this nighttime nonsense, how are you maintaining employment and getting to work on time and not crashing from exhaustion every day? I currently have ADA accommodations and a very understanding supervisor but that won’t last forever. I’m not sure how to work without getting solid sleep.
