    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

    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...

    I've always talked in my sleep.  Usually it's just innocent non sensical things.  But, I've lived with my current roomate for about three years and kind of recently I've started being really mean in my sleep. She'll come into my room because she hears me talking, to...

    A Lot

    I talk in my sleep, although I've never heard it myself. My mom used to tell me about it when I was younger. Apparently one time I even said a boys name. How awkward is that? haha. I was a little embarrassed and that was the first time I ever realized that talking in my sleep...

    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 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...

    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.

    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.

    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??

    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.
