Do you talk in your sleep?

I do most nights. Apparently last night I declared, "I do NOT want to go to Transylvania!" grin grin grin

Many years ago, in my sleep I sat up in bed and said 'the washing machine is on fire'. My husband went down to check. Returned to find me fast asleep.

My exh recorded me once. He had a conversation with me and I was fast asleep. He recorded me as I wouldn't believe him. I was talking about the bears in the garden and they were eating all the peaches.

I often shout in my sleep. DH is not amused. wink

Apparently I whimper ....

Well I did use to but as no one sleeps with me now I don’t know if I still do 😂

I have always walked and talked in my sleep and sometimes wake myself shouting or screaming, the most recent was me shouting MASK.

Apparently I talk in my sleep too. The first I knew of it was when I was about 15 and was staying with my aunt. She told me that I said 'Oooh, he's nice!' I dread to think what I was dreaming about.

DH often says that I've been talking in my sleep although I don't remember, of course. I assume I haven't said anything incriminating. He doesn't talk, he just starts running and accidentally kicks me in the process!

I'm so glad it's not just me. I make my DH's night time life a nightmare. I talk, cry, laugh, whimper, sit up, sleep walk, get cold and take all the quilt or more often get too hot (post menopausal) and throw the whole quilt onto him. I also have restless legs so I even disturb him before I fall asleep.

There are apps you can download, sleep apps.

Records everything sleep, talk, snoring etc.
Shows everything on a graph and you can play it back (if you have time to listen to several hours) hmm

Forgot to say that I snore like an elephant seal with bronchitis grin

I used to talk in my sleep but being single don't know if I still do. My DH used to say I was much better when off work - stress aggravated it. As a child I also sleep walked sometimes.

DH does, regularly. It’s the same old rubbish he talks when he’s awake!😁.

JackyB Sat 13-Feb-21 15:35:29

I don't but I sometimes have to move out to get away from DH shouting. DS1 used to flail and wriggle and now his son seems to do it, too. He has broken bedside lamps and tipped over closed mugs of water when sleeping over at ours.

But everyone's posts so far have given me a good laugh. I wonder why some people do it and some don't. My sister sleeps literally like a log. You can't even hear her breathing.

Not only have I always talked in my sleep but I shout and use swear words that I would never normally use.

I sleep with the window open and sometimes wake myself up shouting F--- Off at the top of my voice. The neighbours must love me.

On a more serious note, I tend to talk in my sleep more when I am anxious about something.

For some reason, I'm reminded of the Crystal Gayle song: "Talking in your Sleep"......

Alioop Sat 13-Feb-21 17:57:17

Yes have done since childhood. I used to drive the family mad on caravan holidays as I chatted all night long and kept them all awake. When my friends and I went in our girly holidays they used to say I gave all my secrets away when I was asleep!

ayse Sat 13-Feb-21 17:59:27

Only when I have a nightmare which fortunately is rare. DH finds it difficult to wake me up as I’m generally a very solid sleeper

Jomarie Sat 13-Feb-21 18:05:38

I do and always have done - not bothered about it now as I sleep alone as OH snores like a trouper - suits us both now and stops silly arguments over who disturbed who the most grin

One morning, years ago, I was asked if I was chasing rabbits last night. Apparently, I had been barking.

Ooh I hope not blush

My eldest daughter talked in her sleep when she was small, in English when she was shouting at her younger sister and in French when talking to her friends.

I know I do ‘operatic’ snoring as my late husband could vouch for and the DC used to say they could hear me from the other end of the house. No wonder I’m exhausted in the morning.
My mother used to give me a fright on holiday by stopping breathing in the middle of a massive snore. Spent the next day sightseeing walking round like a zombie😁

When I am very tired I carry on conversation as though I was at work. I’ve been retired for several years.
