    Default Talking in Your Sleep

    So I talk in my sleep - I literally talk in full, complete sentences. I sometimes wake my husband up and he thinks I'm talking to him, but I'm dreaming. Needless to say, I don't know I'm talking and I don't 'remember' anything.

    Does anyone else do that? Or am I just crazier than I thought?

    I do this as well!! I've had my friends point out several times me tossing or groaning during nightmares (THey can distinguish nightmares from dreams if that's any hint) and laughing, or giggling, or talking. I tend to talk in those mid-steps as well.. where you're not quite all the way asleep, but still don't remember nevertheless..

    OMG!!!!! We have so much in common - amazing! Yeah, it kind of weirds me out when my husband tells me these stories. When I did not believe him, he said he would put a tape recorder beside my bed!!! I've even woken myself up laughing!!! And then when I'm awake, I'm like, "Wait a minute, why the hell am I laughing???" Fall over and go back to sleep.

    Whewwwww that I'm not the only one!

    I wonder if you two can have a conversation with each other while a sleep. Either way, do you say anything in particular in your sleep or just random stuff?

    I've done it, which makes me paranoid to sleep with other people around me.

    I've answered questions people have asked me, etc. while asleep.

    I suppose it depends. My littlest sister talks gibberish that has nothing to do with what she's dreaming or who's around her. I, on the otherhand, have had reports saying that I've talked to the person themselves, while asleep, and dreaming of something else entirely.. but usually I suppose I am so within my own dream world that my body reacts to it as if it were reality.. But then again, I dream very vividly.

    My husband told me that once when I was working in a job I hated at a German company doing a lousy secretarial job and working long hours I talked in my sleep.

    He came in, and said something sweet, and I said (apparently, I don't remember) clear as day "ICH HABE DAS SCHON ABGELEGT!!!!!!!!!" in a very grumpy and aggravated voice. In German. A full sentence.

    He started, thinking I was talking to him. Apparently he tried to figure out what the hell my problem was and probably thought . The next morning he asked me what my problem was and if I was okay. I said sure, and asked him why. He told me that.

    Other times, I moan and groan, laugh, giggle, clench my fists, clench my jaw, toss and turn, etc. in bed while sleeping.

    Another time my husband told me that I said in my sleep, "Try harder. I know you can do this. No, try again. Don't be a dumbass!!!" Apparently I was talking to a frustrating student in my sleep and saying in my dream what I wanted to say in real life but couldn't because I had to keep it professional.

    I don't even *want* to know what other things I've said.

    However, I dream extremely vividly - always have, ever since I was a little kid. But never when it's good. Only when it's bad. Gahhh!

    I lived with a polite ISFJ that used to talk all the time in her sleep. ESTJ, INTJ and ENFP roommates were highly entertained.

    I talk about all sorts of weird stuff in my sleep. "No! Don't make me go topside! There's a troll there and he's going to eat me!" ........... Most of the time, it's just sentences without any meaning. My girlfriend writes down a lot of the crap I say while sleeping.. and laughs at me ^^
