I : I am sorry that this is happening to you. You need to know that this is most likely a medical problem. There are several issues that can cause this and you need to see a doctor and be diagnosed. Some conditions such as a stricture or a problem with not having enough of the hormone that stops urine production (adh). It is extremely unlikely that this is cancer so i don't think you need to worry about that, but i urge you to see a doctor and be completely honest although i know this is hard to talk about. There are definitely treatments for your problem.
