Priya Singh answers on Quora: I am sleeping peacefully, I am dreaming about monsters, fairies, and knights. I am a fearless queen slaying my enemies. All of a sudden I feel wet and sticky. I wake up. I jump out of my bed and check whether I have stained my bed sheets, to my horror, yes, I have. I feel terrible, terrible to the power infinity, I went to the washroom and did the needful. I change my bedsheets as well. Now, my stomach is aching like the devil and yeah my stomach is in a relationship with my back and my waist, now they are aching as well. So basically, now my upper body has given up on me. I take some painkillers and try to sleep. It takes me 90 minutes and 500 sleeping postures to fall asleep.

You have been crawling in your bed finding the comfortable position since you woke up. Just imagine, there is a bread like structure inside your undergarment, it's wet, sticky, smelly, filled with a pool of blood. Whenever you walk the edges of that thing scratches your soft skin.
