During a severe dumping episode today I feel asleep on the toliet there is a wall right next to my toliet, this is not abnormal for me.  But I realized I am moving in 3 weeks and figured out that there is no way that I am going to be able to do that with my new place.  Whoever would have thought that a wall to rest on would be important when looking for a new place...I should have realized.  lol

I prop my elbows on my knees and hold my head up when I'm so exhausted at night (and day too). If only I had a wall... what a great idea. ;-)

if the toilet is close to the vanity, open the vanity door , grab on and rest your head on it. This technique also works well for extremely painful bm's or violent diarrhea.

if the vanity is too far away, i've also done it with the bathroom door, ajar, put one hand on each knob, head against the edge of the door.. however this position may be hard on the back for a long sleep.. you know they have breastfeeding pillows that attach to your waist,, do that and instant pillow!

I sometime bring my pillow to the bathroom so I can fall asleep leaning on the wall. What would I do if there was no wall ? That could be a messy situation .
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

In one of the many apartments I had, there was no wall. I ended up dragging my pillow to the bathroom and hugging it. Kinda like sleeping on an airplane. I am glad for my wall in current house.

I was just going through this last night. And on top of it I was wide awake and had a little anxiety too. So I made a chamomile tea, took a half of a sleeping pill and finally fell asleep with no more bathroom problems.

Anyone take sleeping pills and do you still have to get up to go to the bathroom?

LOL! If they knew anything about crohn's you'd think the throne would be the first place they'd look.. hahaha

I just started sleeping pills yesterday due to insane insomnia but I have an ostomy pouch so I don't know the answer to your question..but was kinda wondering the same, sometimes it gets so full of air (gas) it's about to explode and I have to burp it in the middle of the night.. wonder how sound your sleep is on these things>

Better to fall asleep on the toilet than in the toilet!

True true, and while I will be able to lean on the sink (I made sure I would be able to vomit into the sink when on the throne), why did I not think about sleeping on the throne? ARGH!

Sometimes things become so natural that you don't think about them until they are gone. For example trying to turn on the TV because you can't read cause the power is out lol

How about a wooden chair, just the right height, with a hole cut in the seat? You could place it right over the bowl and sit and be OK. The chair would need to have arms. Done right you could even adjust it to slightly recline by trimming the rear legs.

Possible?

You need an air bag on the floor to catch you when you doze. By the way its a bad idea to throw up in the sink. You may clog up the drain that way. Thats a mess to fix . I have a nice plastic trash can next to the toilet just for that reason and I can pour it in after and flush it. I had a bad flare on an Alaskan cruse one time and ended up stopping up the little sink because my rear end had the toilet busy at the same time. I really felt sorry for the maintenance guy that had to fix it. Bad enough when I have to clean up such a thing that I did myself but I dont want to make someone else clean up my stomach contents. You know you could always buy one of those walkers that people use to get around. You know the ones they always put the tennis balls on the feet . You can prop your pillow up on it and rest your head while you rest your , ahhhhh, your other end..

I know it is bad to throw up in the sink, but it happens when the barf bucket is full. So liquid by that time.

Sniper, I want a bathroom like the picture of "your bathroom office" with the easy chair loo, computer, and TV.

If your bathtub is right next to the toilet you could replace the shower curtain with those sliding shower doors. That way you will have a "wall" to rest on when needed.
