I have a headache right now and I don't know if it's from having too much coffee or not enough.

Fumble outta bed and stumble to the kitchen. Pour myself a cup of ambition. And yawn and stretch, my life is a mess, And if I never make it home today, God bless.

1 in 3 have sleepwalked at some point in their life. Only about 4% sleepwalk now.

A lot of kids sleepwalk and grow out of it.

//My kid sleep walked and often screamed while sleepwalking, now that's some scary stuff.

No kidding, same with my kid. It was awful - he was hard to wake too, so you would be stuck holding him as he sat on the stairs crying as if the world has ended. Bad scene. Poor guy.

If we're talking about sleep issues, I need some help. I rarely sleep through the night, and haven't since I was a teenager. When I get up, I'm pretty much awake, but I need to eat something. Not some crazy ambien thing, usually a few slices of bread or tortillas. I can't quite manage to not do it. In the past, I have suffered from insomnia and sleep paralysis, but not for 15 years or so. I've had sleep studies done. I don't have sleep apnea, and I've tried several drugs: melitonin, over the counter aids, ambien. No good. Weirdly, I don't tend to do this when I'm traveling: probably my brain knows that there isn't any starch handy.

Does anyone else have this? It's been making me crazy for years.

I don't mind if Mrs. Henry walks in her sleep. It's the damned talking in her sleep that irks me.
Dammit, woman! Doesn't that jaw-bone get sore from all the flapping?

I had a friend growing up whose little brother use to sleep walk. He'd go into the hall closet and pee. They use to get so mad they would close the door with him still in the closet. Man that family was farked up when I look back on it.

Maybe she's like my wife. She has a medical condition where if she goes 5 minutes without talking, she dies.

I sleepwalk, but only occasionally. Most of the time, I return to bed before I wake up, but every once in a while I'll wake up in some really strange place. I used to sleepwalk and turn off my alarm clock in the morning, making me chronically late for work.

Oddly, the more I change up my living arrangements from time to time, the less I sleepwalk. Or, perhaps the less I'm able to figure out where things are in my sleep and so I can't turn the alarm off :)

Once you have the headache, it makes little difference... might as well just pop an aspirin and drink plenty of water.

The last time my kid sleepwalked, I came into her room and she tried to use her stuffed animal basket as a toilet.

I marched her to the bathroom, which she used, then she started trying to wash her hands with toothpaste, at which point I said nevermind the handwashing this time, let's just get you back to bed.

The whole time she was very upset, crying and gabbling complete nonsense. The next morning, she didn't remember a thing.

I've had sleep sex several times before actually.

I wake up and my gf (when I was still single) or wife (now) is all happy and thanks me for a great night last night. I think about it for a few minutes, realize I'm naked, and realize I missed out on the fun.

Sometimes I vaguely remember it, a few times I have no memory at all.

I believe it's the inability to exhale without speaking - quite common among the ladies.

Future Mr Mouse does that too. He gets just as disappointed as well. According to his mother he and his sister used to sleep walk as kids and once in a while they'ed wake up in strange places when they were teens. Once he told me he woke up in middle of trying to cook some eggs and soda on an unlit stove. Another time he went into his room and found his sister just standing in the middle of it staring off and he had to gently guide her back to her room.
 
2012-05-15 12:00:08 PM  
Apparently, I used to sleepwalk when I was a kid. I'd get up, go into the kitchen. And turn the lights on and off repeatedly. My mother would usually hear this, come out, and wake me. One time she let me keep doing it, said I did it for 20 minutes or so, then laid down on the floor.

I used to do that when I was in my 20s, except for me it was cereal. I'd get up around 2 or 3 in the morning, wide awake and hungry as hell, and couldn't go back to sleep unless I went to the kitchen and had a bowl of Rice Chex. I think it's considered an eating disorder. It probably started as necessity, then your body got into a habit. I ended it by actually eating breakfast and forcing myself to NOT get up when I woke up hungry in the middle ofthe night.

When I've written on FARK about taking Ambien for sleeping on the overnight Greyhound or trans-Pacific flights, people tell me stories of people doing all kinds of things in their sleep while on Ambien. I don't know how that works, I just take Ambien to sleep. Even when I take it, I wake up alert sometimes after just 4-5 hours sleep.
 
2012-05-15 12:08:35 PM  
I remember the first time I sleep-walked. It was 2008, and I woke up as my hotel room door slammed behind me. I realized was I standing in my hallway at an all-inclusive in the Dominican Rep. I had to march down to the front desk (in an entirely different building) in my tighty whities. The hotel staff were discrete about my condition, but it was still very odd. Exactly like the dream where you're at work without clothes. Do I cover up? Do I hide in a bush? This is a special type of shame that shouldn't manifest itself in normal, waking life
I've noticed since then that drinking greatly exacerbates my sleepwalking. I once chewed a bar of stolen hotel soap thinking it was a babybel while at home. It was probably the way the bar was wrapped.

With many people if they don't go to bed immediately it will mess them up. Some people take it, think they can get a task done before bed and next thing you know they're trying to get their brownies ready for the school bake sale (key ingredients to include white vinegar and crushed red pepper, of course). Or you take one to get sleep on a trans-continental flight but your body refuses to settle. Then in that weird drug induced state your brain thinks it's a good idea to take whatever is left in the bottle and next thing you know you're screaming naked in a plane and trying to break into the cockpit.

I used to sleepwalk quite a bit growing up. Basically, I would go about early morning routines, such as getting dressed, making the bed and/or walking to the kitchen to eat breakfast and watch TV. I lost count of the times I woke up fully dressed on my bed or in front of the small kitchen TV with a spoonful of cereal in my mouth. Since my mom has always been a light sleeper, she would get up and make sure I didn't accidentally hurt myself.

A few CSBs stand out:

My dreams would often bleed into my sleepwalking. In one instance, I dreamt I was being chased by a huge spider. All of a sudden, I'm back in my bed. I look up to the ceiling and there's that huge spide just chilling there right above me. Calm as a coma, I slip out of bed, wander to the kitchen and turn on the TV. Mom hears this and comes to check on me. According to her, I was still responsive to her questions. "Why don't you go back to bed?" "Can't. Huge spider there. OK here." She assured me there wasn't and led me back to bed.

In another instance, I dreamt that my parents were out of town and told me I could sleep in their bed, as it was summer and only their bedroom had A/C. Again, I find myself in my bed, wondering why I chose to sleep there as it's much cooler in my folks' room. I get up, go to their room and find two people sleeping. I stand there confused, wondering if I had invited people over, and why I would let them sleep in the A/C'ed room while I put up with August heat. My mom later told me she rolled over, opened her eyes and saw a figure looming over her, backlit by the full moon. Needless to say, she screamed her ass off. My dad, ever the protector, simply grunted and rolled over on his side, still fast asleep. I groggily ask when they got back and why they didn't tell me. thinking I was sleepwalking, my mom just reassures me that she told me when they returned and guides me back to bed. Basically, I was actually awake the whole time, but still stuck in that dream. Not sure if that counts as sleepwalking.

Finally, my very last episode, and the one I enjoy telling most, was when I was 16. Again, it was summer time. No dream prompted this, but basically I woke up outside, in our front yeard, naked, staring at the highway, with my legs bleeding. Apparently, I had managed to go through two sets of locks and just step outside. Luckily, I walked a straight line from the front door, which led me into our rose bushes, cutting up my legs and waking me up. Pretty much the biggest WTF moment I ever had. I ran back inside and patched myself up. Never sleepwalked since.

At any given point in my life I've had strange sleep habits. Sleepwalking when I was young, getting up at 2am to eat when I was in my 20s, and now apparently (according to my wife) I occasionally sing medieval songs in a falsetto in my sleep. After reciting some of the songs I know (used to perform in several early music ensembles) we identified "Bacche Bene Venies", "La Mora de Borja", and "Ai Vist lo Loup".

No wonder I turned out crazy.

Somehow I felt that csb alone deserves to have you favorited. As long as you made your lady very happy, that's what matters.

What kind of idiot uses red pepper in brownies? Chipotle's smokey flavor is much better.

I guess the curse that I can wake up so easily or not fall asleep is what allows Ambien to be such a blessing to me, and I respect that and do hold off using it until I'm sure it's needed and I'm more than ready to sleep .... or it's totally intentionally planned like trans-Pacific flight, redeye flight, or overnight Greyhound.

My roomate sleepwalks if she is uncomfortable. When she first moved in years ago she would sleepwalk.......naked. Quite the show. One morning she did it she crawled into my bed full nude and cuddled with me. Then a few hours later got up ripped all the blankets and sheets she could get off the bed and went to her room. It was pretty funny, she made a little nest for herself.

I have sleep walked as an adult a couple of times. Mr Tergiversada says that I bolted out of bed at a full run. I remember waking up at the top of the stairs. I have always had trouble sleeping, but since I started taking Lunesta, I sleep like the dead. Great stuff.

I don't sleepwalk, but sometimes I fall asleep unintentionally, and when I do so I sleep very lightly. If someone happens to enter the room when I'm in such a state I immediately spring up and enter a sort of karate stance. Most of the time it's just my mom and she'll spend the next 2 or 3 minutes talking me down. It's nice to know that I'm battle ready in the dead of night. I used to have sleep paralysis and hypnagogia too, but that stuff has died down since I graduated college.
