    Do you talk in your sleep?

    And if you do talk in your sleep, does it wake you up?  If other's hear what you've said does it make any sense to them, or do they laugh at you?

    I do not talk but I know my husband and daughter talk in their sleep. They do not believe it though.

    I talk in my sleep sometimes and I get laughed at when I do. I never wake up because of it though.

    I've been told that I occasionally talk in my sleep, but I'm difficult to understand.

    According to my wife, I do talk occasionally in my sleep.

    It is likely relating to certain dreams that I had in the nights. When I wake up, I usually remember my dreams but after awhile, I will forget totally. I usually to write down my dreams when I wake up immediately and trying to figure out if there is any meanings to the dream.

    Don't know - I woke myself up laughing out loud once though. I never did find out what was so funny.

    Yes and I've woke my self up talking before. Usually it doesn't make any sense because my dreams are always nonsensical.

    I think most people do it because I've heard my husband and kids.

    My whole family does. My son walks in his sleep also. He will come out in the living room and have a conversation with you while asleep. You figure it out after a few minutes and I just tell him it is time to go to bed. He wanders off back to bed and never remembers it.
    My dad would talk in his sleep and if he was having a dream would tell you about it if you asked. When we were kids, we would haunt the bedroom if he was asleep, waiting for him to tell us a story.

    sometimes i talked when i am sleeping, but the funny thing is, if i talk i easily wake up, and ask my husband, what are you saying, then he will tell me, it was you who is talking.

    In the past, I have talked in my sleep, and I actually found myself walking in my sleep once. It was all part of a dream I was having. I woke up at the end of the bed trying to pull the blankets off. I don't remember why now.
    I find this kind of thing intriguing. I believe it is our brains way of trying to work something out.

    My husband of 4 years talks in his sleep! And about the most random things.I remember the first time I heard him talk in his sleep (he didn't warn me). He just starts yelling, "I want sunflower seeds"! And I looked at him like "what? it's 2 am". And he just kept yelling it. So I got up to look for sunflower seeds, and when I  came back to tell him we didn't have any, he seemed confused and asked "what are you talking about?" I also remember another time he was just mumbling some jibberish, and then all of a sudden yells "ballpoint pen"! When I asked him about it later he just laughed and said he had no idea what I was talking about. We've learned that he only talks in his sleep if he eats right before bed, or if he is EXTREMELY tired. So no midnight snacks, and if he is exhausted he will take a little nap during the day to avoid the awkward 2am yellings.

    Yes, sometimes. Thankfully, I never talk loudly enough for anybody to hear me. I just wake up mumbling, usually when having a dream at the same time.

    Hello Eric,

    Ohhhh yes. Back in the days when I was still at boarding school I used to freak people out because I would start talking very loudly in the middle of the night. On top of this, my friend was a sleepwalker...can you imagine, one girl babbling the other walking around like a zombie :-)

    Unfortunately to this day there is noone who could tell what I am saying. They always forget. Maybe one day I will get a voicerecorder out.

    I have to say I am a proud sleep talker and this to snorring.

    Your 'Team Leader'
