Dreading Going to Sleep

I now dread going to sleep. The last thing I would’ve thought would come around with this anxiety.

The reason I say this is because I had urinary incontinence during the night for the FIFTH STRAIGHT night, and I still don’t know why it’s happening, because I’m asleep when it is happening. My ultrasound on my kidneys and bladder are tomorrow.

And I had a scare with my headache episodes again. To catch you all up to speed since my episode on Wednesday, Same thing happened on Saturday night at around 2:00am, headache came on, vomited again. Felt again like a migraine-type headache, which I’ve never felt before having not had a migraine before.

Well last night, I woke up at 3:00am, and I could feel it coming on, like it was about to unleash itself on me. Luckily, I was able to go back to sleep with no problems.

Both these things are just making me dread sleep. Trust me, I value my sleep. I always have. But all these things that have happened are making me not want to go to sleep, because the same cycle is just gonna keep happening. Thankfully my therapist is back in town and I see him today. This sucks..... :(
