Do you ever have dreams about not being able to find a bathroom when you need one? Perhaps you dream about finding a bathroom but it is horribly unclean or somehow unusable? I have these types of dreams all the time, usually when I am under some kind of stress. And, truthfully, it has happened often enough in real life that I encounter a bathroom that is less than perfect. This is why I have tissue, wet wipes, and hand sanitizer in my car and in my purse at all times.
Dreaming about toilets isn't at all unusual for people with IBD. People who have a chronic health condition commonly have dreams closely related to their illness or sometimes even dream about death. The bigger problem is that these dreams can disturb your sleep. How do you deal with sleep problems?
