Celebrities talking about childhood bedwetting.

Jennifer Lawrence Discusses Her Bed-Wetting

The newest face of bedwetting:  Jennifer Lawrence was the latest celebrity with a late-night sharing with Conan O’Brian that she wet the bed even at 13.  More intriguing, were her comments about hyperactivity.

40% of our patients at the Center for Bedwetting Treatment present with both bedwetting and ADD/ADHD symptoms.  Beyond the developmental years we know the leading cause of bedwetting is the sleep condition that keeps the individual in a deep state of sleep rather than five stage gradual cycling every 90 minutes.  They wet the bed in the deepest sleep  and wake up sleep deprived!  Chronic bedwetting takes a toll on the individual.  When the brain is tired it can take on many symptoms including distractibility, hyperactivity, and difficulty focusing. Lawrence revealed her rather hyperactive youth, which included medication at one point. She says she looked at every day as a way to start fresh, cool, calm and collected. It just never worked out that way.

Jennifer Lawrence seem to take her bedwetting experience in stride.  “I wet the bed when I was sleeping, and I just thought, ‘Who wets the bed when they’re 13?’ And so I couldn’t wait to get to school and tell everybody, then I went into the bleachers and was like, ‘Everybody, I wet the bed last night,’ thinking everybody was going to think I was so funny and cool, and it was just silent.”

It was generous of Miss Lawrence to be so honest about this very private matter.  Millions of teenagers and young adults who continue to wet the bed can know they are not alone.





Bed-wetting Embarrassment Leads to Bullying

bedwetters are bullied
I wonder how far the quote “jokes” will go before someone realizes the true bullying that is occurring with James Argent being outed for bedwetting. Bedwetting, or Enuresis, is actually a problem caused by abnormally deep sleep, which doesn’t allow for the bedwetter’s brain and bladder to connect. There is no guarantee that someone will outgrow bedwetting.  More importantly, if a child or teenager  were to outgrow this problem, they are then left with a sleep disorder that can no longer be treated.I wonder if this was the case with the alcohol related bedwetting event which left Towie Star James Argent in such a deep sleep his bladder could not wake his brain. He might have experienced bedwetting as a child and continues to experience the residual deep sleep problem.  Meanwhile, the psychological impact of bedwetting can be devastating at any age and with any event it is still involuntary.Why the need to bully him? Someone who continues to wet the bed lives with the fear of being discovered and bullied. 



The Daily Star posted the following story


TOWIE’S James Argent in bed-wetting embarrassment

The cast have been joking that the Essex lad needs to join TV rival Geordie Shore where 24-year-old Charlotte Crosby’s weeing antics have become legendary.

Poor Arg, 25, ended up in a mess after a drunken night out in Las Vegas.

He and his co-stars partied until the early hours after finishing filming scenes for a new series of the show which starts tomorrow night on ITV2.

“He wet the bed Geordie Shore style”

Arg blacked out when he got back to his hotel suite and was so boozed up he wet his bed.

Fellow cast member Ferne McCann, 22, revealed: “He wet the bed Geordie Shore style.

“Best we get Arg a nappy for next time.”

Bed Wetting, Ricky Lake Discussed Sleep Disorders

Today’s Ricky Lake show discussed sexomnia and other sleep disorders.  Often, talk shows miss the least sexy, but most troublesome sleep disorder symptom:  bed wetting.  

The leading cause of bedwetting is the same sleep disorder that produces sleep walking and night terrors.  The adult sleep eater featured on Ricky Lake’s talk show could have been a bed wetter as a child. This misunderstood (bedwetting) sleep disorder topic needs a voice.

Sean “Diddy” Combs announced, or as he stated it, “confessed” he was a bed wetter because he drank Kool-Aid.  “Someone does not wet their bed because of what they drink,” states Dr. Lyle Danuloff, Ph.D. “Sean wet the bed because he inherited a deep sleep disorder.  The deep sleep resulted in the brain’s inability to receive signals from the bladder.”

Dr. Danuloff is a consulting psychologist and has worked with Barbara Moore, leading bedwetting expert and founder of The Center for Bedwetting Treatment for the past 25 years.  They reached out to Ricky Lake to discuss this very serious problem that is wrapped in shame. The show’s current format, according to USA Today, is a blend of self-help and family issues.

Ricky was quoted in USA Today  “I am so proud of the shows we completed this season, sparking important conversations about everything from raising children to mental illness to suicide prevention to coming out,” Lake said in a statement. “I will continue to be an active and passionate voice for subjects that are close to my heart through a variety of platforms.”

Bedwetting is the unsexiest symptom produced by the deep sleep disorder and Barbara Moore knows that Ricky’s audience will learn how this unsexy problem can negatively impact the rest of someone’s life.

Sexsomnia and other sleeping disorders

March 7 – From insomnia to sexsomnia, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke claims that more than 40 million Americans are affected by sleep disorders.  Ricki explores some of the more bizarre behavior that today’s guests have experienced.

Chelsea and her ex-boyfriend, George, hit it off as soon as they met, but their relationship ran amuck at bedtime when Chelsea was repeatedly awakened by George’s unconscious attempts to have sexual intercourse in the middle of the night, a phenomenon known as “sexomnia.”

Also, Evelyn is a mother of four who suffers from insomnia. For the last 15 years, she’s been taking sleep aids — the only problem is they cause her to sleep walk, talk and eat and she doesn’t remember anything the next morning. Concerned for her safety, her kids have taken to policing her during the night and shot home video of her in action.

And, Ricki meets a young boy, Thomas, who was diagnosed with narcolepsy and cataplexy when he was 11-years-old.
