2. We use the following expressions without an adjective (my, his, the, etc.):

Stay in bed Go to bed Get out of bed Lie in bed Be in bed

INCORRECT: I decided to stay in my bed this morning.
CORRECT: I decided to stay in bed this morning.

INCORRECT: I never go to my bed before 11 p.m.

COMPARE
“Who’s been sleeping in my bed?” asked my father.

[ Here MY before BED is correct as here the verb is SLEEP, not anyone of the one said above.]
