    My Husband Talks In His Sleep

    Sometimes he talks about work. Last night, when I came back to bed after tending to the baby, he sat up and asked if I was "his wife" or "the other girl." How likely is there "another girl" in reality??

    Sort Of. Does Moaning Count?

    I used to.  But I wouldn't talk, I'd moan.  Moan in pain...not anything sexual.  My boyfriend at the time would wake me up and ask me what was wrong, but I would always say that I didn't know, and I really didn't.  I had to have been dreaming but I could...

    Yesterday i woke myself up

    because of something i said. I wonder why it happens, i mean talking in your sleep. I seem to be doing it more recently. I've took a 'thinking it's funny' approach because it's not something i can control.

    Okay, Maybe I Do...

    I'll admit it., when I do sleep, I talk in my sleep. It's not every night or not even that often but it usually happens when I have a lot on my mind. I didn't believe it at first but I have caught myself a few times right before I fall into a deep sleep. Ugh. My ex partners have...

    My Top 10 Sleep Talk Moments

    I've been a sleep talker for years and have managed to narrow down each night into a top 10 experience list (as told by my fiance when I was conscious again): 1. "The dog looks good in the wetsuit. He says he needs it to fly around the universe." 2. "Mother! Motherrrrr!!! Where...

    Not Sleep Tourettes

    So I have been told.  Not that much I don't think, I have had live-in boyfriends and they hardly ever said it so it must be an occasional thing.My Mum has said she has heard me when I was younger a few times, just garbled nonsense mostly but she used to have actual...

    Walking, Talking Sleeper!

    I woke up in the morning to a very annoyed boyfriend whose first sentence to me was "You better go and apologise to D****e", but I'd only just woken up so I was a bit confused. What had happened was, somehow, someone (maybe me) had let the dog out in the middle of the night??? I...

    Betrayed By My Dreams

    My girlfriend keeps on hearing me saying random girls names (Like Maxine, I've never met a Maxine!) and I do have very violent/terrible or often sexual dreams, which worries me to death because I cant control what I dream, and if I dream of having sex with someone else and I talk...

    Not just talk. I shout

    and scream obscenities. My neighbours think I'm a lunatic, and they're not too far wrong. I heard there's a chemical that stops you doing stuff when you're asleep, and if you don't have enough you can talk and thrash around or get up and walk around.

    Ever since I was a child,

    I've been talking in my sleep. At first it was all cutesy stuff, like about going to Disneyland or riding unicorns. Lately I've been talking about finding someone and killing him. I think I turn into an assassin in my sleep

    My Phone Conversation In My Sleep.

    I only talk in my sleep only if I'm very tired or I have something on my mind. So I was at my grandma's spending the night on a weekend visit and I went to bed earlier than her because I was so exhausted. I went to sleep right when I hit the pillow and the next thing I know my...

    Very Active At Night

    I sleep, very well most nights, anymore.  But I've always had a problem with sleep talking...and sleep walking...and sleep activity.  I've stood up in the bed when I was a child and started talking to nobody, according to my parents.  I've walked out of hotel rooms...

    So My Husband Says

    I punch as hard as I can in my sleep, and even though I'm aiming for some ******* in my dreams, I hit my wall or nightstand furniture.  And in doing so, I mess up my fists real bad.  I can't remember how many times I've woken up with bloody knuckles.  I've got...

    What Don'T I Do In My Sleep?

    I sleep talk, and usually every night I sing something random off-key and usually the tune doesn't match the song. I once sang 'on top of old smokey' to the tune of the theme of the 'pirates of the Caribbean' That tune must be my favorite, because in my sleep I hum it and try to...

    I talk in my sleep occasionally. It doesn't happen as often now as it used to. (Now I tend to just laugh or giggle!) I don't think I've ever said anything incriminating (phew!) or overly embarrassing, thankfully. :D The last time this happened, I dreamed I was in a McDonald's...

    Talking And Kicking

    Apparently, I often talk in my sleep, but it doesn't make any sense. I've spoken about a rock kitchen on numerous occasions. I kick in my sleep as well, and as a result I sometimes wake up with sore feet.
