For a few months now I have been sleep talking.When I slept in the same room as my friend on holiday a few weeks ago she said I woke her up shouting.Then my cousin said I woke him up saying "NO NO NO,don't, leave me alone",and my mum says she can hear me in the next room talking.I hate this, and am worried I am going to disclose a dreaded secret or something I shouldn't say! Anyone got any advice on what causes it or how to stop it????

Hey Tink,
If ya happen to disclose any info, and someone gets hurt just deny it cause it's all subconscience thoughts coming ot the surface, nothing you can do about it.

I also learned that dreaming is a way of our subconscience kinda cleaning house. A way for the emotions pushed down to escape so by finding another way to release your anxieties may help.

I do this when I am under extreme stress. The other night I yelled that everyone had to stop smoking, stop the pot and quit drinking and it was time to go home. I usually wake myself up. It is funny cause booker thinks I am talking to him. I dreamed the other night that I got stabbed in the foot with a pencil and I screamed.

I sleep talk too...mostly when I am having nightmares. I scare the hell out of Adam most times šŸ™‚

Don't worry about saying something...you don't have to tell anyone what the words mean...just say you were dreaming but you can't remember it.

Most times I don't know what I am saying, but Adam thinks it is funny because he asks me questions when I am asleep and I answer him.

Lots of love Becca xxxxxxx

Yeah its OK to deny it, but what if someone has an idea what you are doing,then you say it in your sleep,it would confirm it.Hmmm.....What if I say something nasty,or that NO ONE should know.I suppose Nattie is right,say it is my subconciuosness.I hate not being in control over what I say,guess I am a control freak.Food,cutting,people and emotions.I dont wana go to bed now cos of this talking!Maybe I should put a dictaphone on my pillow to record what I say,then I'll know!

I talk in my sleep constantly. So does my BF. I don't know what I've been saying, but BF makes me laugh at times if he happens to wake me up with his chatter. He's in the army, so occasionally, he'll bellow out something about "Private Monroe, get yer ass out here, front and center! Where's your weapon???!!!!" It's usually just nonsense. I've been told that I do everything from ask random questions "Where's my flashlight?" to cry out, to meowing, to demanding toilet paper. (Don't ask me where that one is coming from.) Talking in your sleep doesn't necessarily mean that's when the "truth" comes out. You are probably just having a real intense dream, good or bad. I've also woken myself up laughing, so I get up, write down what I was laughing at, then read it the next morning. Honest, I had written down "badgers playing with green balls" as something that was soooo hysterically funny at 2am.

Who knows what happens while we sleep? Our brains do very strange and wonderful things. I would say not to worry about it, unless you are having nightmares and trouble sleeping. Otherwise, it's just a funny habit that will either make it tough for friends to tolerate you when you're camping together, or you and your future husband will have some killer conversations while you are both asleep, provided that he's a "talker" too.

It's just a subconscious thing about whatever is going through your mind at the time eg when I really 'need to go' in the middle of the night I usually dream of toilets.

I've woken myself up by laughing sometimes too.

My boyfriend has also claimed that I talked about a "Luke" in my sleep, although he can't remember exactly what was said just that I said the name. He got really suspicious and started asking who the hell Luke was! And that's the thing I'd like to know! I don't know any Lukes!

Anyway, I guess the point is you can't really control what you say/do in your sleep - just be careful who can hear you I guess!

Hi Tink,

Even if you are dreaming about your therapy session, probably what comes out wouldn't make much sense to anyone else but you. Maybe every other sentence *might* come out, so all a casual listener might hear is "So then I put the cream pitcher in the refrigerator. It really hurt. I can't do my math homework." It really would make no sense for someone who wasn't inside your head.

Try not to worry. *hug* Even if you do say something weird, everyone, including your family, realizes that dreams are just random firings, and that occasionally weird things pop out.

Hi Tink.

I know you have bigger problems on your mind than math homework. Wasn't meaning to imply that you were caught up in trivilatities. Trivialness. Trivia. Whatever. Anyway, the thing about sleep and sleep talking is that it often times has nothing whatsoever to do with the real worries playing on your mind. What is really deep and relevant (cutting?) to you in your waking life might have a 10% chance of triggering a dream. And each dream might have a 10% chance of triggering your mouth to form sentences. And each time you talk in your sleep, it might be understood 10% of the time. So, we can do the math (see, it's relevant here *smile*) and assuming that you are really worried about cutting, you have a less than 1 in 1000 chance of saying something about cutting in a dream that someone else will hear. That's 1 night every three years.

OK, I know you think I'm being ridiculous, and you might think that I'm making fun of you. I'm not. (I've had to do calculations like this for myself when I've been terrified to go to a new city or try something new, actually calculate out the odds that something really bad would happen to me. It made me feel a LOT better.)

If in the off chance that your parents do hear you mumble in your sleep something like "I cut because..." what do you think would happen? I know you don't want them to hear that, but why? Do you feel like they would judge you, or yell at you, or blame you, or blame themselves? In reality, if they raised a daughter as pretty and with as big of a heart as you are and you have (yes, I saw your website last year), they must love you very much, in their way. I'm sure that they aren't perfect, and that you have some very legit reasons for not wanting to talk to them about this. But if they *were* to hear the worst, what do you think their hearts would do? I'm not a mom, but I know lots of good moms, and I know what their hearts would do, and I know what mine would do. Their hearts would go out to you. Their voices and thoughts might be jumbled and confused, but their hearts would be wanting to comfort yours.

It's OK Tink, if the hole is dark and safe and warm for a little while and you just need to relax there to feel safe, go ahead. Recharge the spirit, it's OK to have "downtime" every once in a while. Heck, even SC's servers need downtime sometimes.

*big hug* don't go away Tink, we won't let you.

Thanx Becca šŸ™‚ Yep, I have your new e-mail address if I need it.You have mine too? U can e-mail n e time if u need to talk off here.Hug to U (((((Becca)))))

Hey Ginger.Is that really true? If you have major worries,thats not the thing that will come out if I talk?
No,I don't think u r being ridiculous by what u r saying.

I have big reasons why I cannot tell my mum and dad about cutting.Really,I do.I can't/don't want to discuss them on here tho.But what I will say is that they have enough worried already.My mum worries like hell about me,and if she knew this,fuck knows what would happen.Actually I do know.I don't think they'd blame me, maybe yell at me,but they blame THEMSELVES.

I always end up crying reading some of these threads.Yes,I know.Its stupid,but some of them really get to me.Sometimes anger (not this one), sometimes sadness,and sometimes I just feel like crying.

The hole I am in at the mo isn't too safe.I want to get out, but my arms are not strong enough to pull up.

Thanx Ginger.You guys r really great, you know that?

Love,Tink xxxxx
