What's the strangest thing you've ever done in your sleep?

    Driving home in the rain today, listening to the radio, I heard them talking about this very thing and they were telling the story of some 44 year old woman who apparently sent three very bizarre emails in her sleep.  As a child I used to sleepwalk, but I can't think of anything really strange I've done.  I guess, probably because I was asleep and don't know what I did.  Do any of you do strange things in your sleep?

      I've heard that story. 

      The craziest thing I've done is talk in my sleep in a room full of people, while at a ladies retreat.

    As a young mother, I read a book one evening that I didn't like.  Sleep walking in my birthday suit, my husband followed me to the balcony of our apartment overlooking a mall and watched me throw the book over the rail page by page.  Must have gotten it out of my system as I haven't had any incidents since.  P.S. Real glad we didn't have cell phones with cameras back then as he thought it hilarious.  Told me that was what I got for reading too much.

    My now ex-hubby loved motorcycles. He had been Harley shopping for a while and was just waiting for the spring to come before purchasing. One night, I heard the strangest noises and woke to see him still under the covers, but sitting straight up in bed with his arms out in front of him pretending to ride a motorcycle. He was making the noises and everything, moving his hands and swaying back and forth just like he was riding. And he was dead sound asleep!

    I read an article about a man who said his infidelity was due to Ambien. That he had slept with another woman while actually asleep. You be the judge big_smile

    As far as me, I laugh in my sleep alllll the time. I've also been known to sleep walk, but I never get very far.

    A couple of years ago I was on some medication called Ambien for sleep.  I do not recommend it.  When I started taking this medication I started getting up about 4 hours later and eating.  I had to go downstairs, fix a bowl of cereal (I guess my food of choice) walk back upstairs and sit at the top and eat my cereal, leave my bowl there and go back to bed.  This went on for about 5 months once or twice a week.  I always blamed my daughters until they caught me and said they had a full conversation with me.  That is when I stopped taking it.  Walking down stairs in your sleep and eating is bad enough but when you start talking to your teens in your sleep, something had to change.

    When I was only a little one (my mom remembers I must have been about 3 or 4 years old), I would get up at night to use the restroom.  But instead of going to the bathroom I would go to the back door and when I couldn't get it open because it was locked I would start to pull my pants down and go right there at the back door.  My mom, who would be up and talking on the phone to my aunt would stand there and watch.  Back then it was believed you should never wake someone up when they were sleep walking because it would cause psychological problems (or something lke that).  Fortunately, I would wake up before I actually made a mess at the back door.

      I've never done anything unusual in my sleep, just snore or drool, but when we were kids, I caught my brother--on two separate occasions--peeing in the garbage can in the kitchen.

    crazybeanriderposted 8 years ago

    Not to long ago I moved with my GF into her parents house. Her brother also lived there as well. We  had rooms on the second floor. Her parents had the ground floor. The basement was neutral ground. They always had company over, the other brothers and sisters. Somebody was always going to work or coming to work. Or hanging out. I was always kind of shy about living there. So I basically kind of hung out in my room.

    I used to sleepwalk since  childhood, but rarely in adulthood. I took out the air conditioner on the 2nd floor and started to climb out the window. But I was stopped by the police driving by on patrol. This was in a Detroit neighborhood. Sirens and flashing lights helped wake me up. It was very scarey.

    i've been told i have conversations with other people who are also asleep...as witnessed by those who are awake.  but my favorite story came from my dad: he told me that at age six, i walked into my parents room and straight up to him as he was reading in bed, to inform him that my wings wouldn't open up.  he played along for a bit and then sent me back to bed somewhat recommitted to humanity.   smile 

    i think i had watched 'Barbarella' that night and thought i was Pygar.  why on earth was that movie on tv where a six-year-old could see it??

    I gave orders to my Executives that with only 3 days remaining for the month closure I want all of them to achieve their sales targets. My guy recorded the conversation in his cell phone and we had a hearty laugh in the morning. I realized that the pressure of Work and targets was really getting into me. However, I quit my Bank job after three months and have not talked in my sleep after that.

    I was in a town doing a show and myself and another actor were being housed in the University dorms. It was during Christmas vacation so they were mostly empty, but there were a few people here and there.  I woke up at three o'clock in the morning looking in the shower room mirror down the hall, then noticed that I was buck naked. I didn't know what to do, so I ran down the hall to my room but I had locked myself out.  So I ran back to the shower room. The head resident, who could've unlocked my door was three floors down off the main lobby so I wasn't going there. I spent a half hour in there trying to figure out what to do. There were no dirty towels to wrap myself in and no shower curtains. I looked for a bobby pin or something thinking maybe I could pick the lock. A couple of times I ran back down to my room and rammed the door as hard as I could with my shoulder, and then ran back to the shower room with a sore shoulder. I knew my window was open so I checked the ledge thinking maybe I could scooch along the ledge and get in my window, but it was only 3 inches wide and several floors up so I didn't. Finally, I gave up and crept as quietly as I could, naked, to the room where the other actor was, which wasn't so close and through a more public area.  I knocked on his door and it took me several minutes to convince him to throw me some clothes. Finally, the door opened quickly, shorts and a tee shirt came flying out, and then the door slammed. He finally let me crash on his floor.  I never slept naked again.

    According to my college roommate, I sat up in bed one morning as she was getting ready for class and yelled, "Fire! Fire! Fire!  Put it out!  Put it out!  Put it out!" and just as quickly, laid back down and continued sleeping.

    When I related the story to a friend, she told me she'd once had a friend that taught her an entire song while sleeping.  Words and music.

    When I was younger my parents said I would take my blanket and walk up and down the street. The neighbors would holler for me to go home. They said I scared them because I just walked slow with the blanket over my head like a vampire.

    We lived along a river so parents were always freaking out.
