Do you talk in your sleep?

I've been told by my boyfriend that I talk a lot in my sleep. It doesn't happen every night, only when I'm tired or something's playing on my mind. He says that I normally mumble but there have been times when I've been really tired that I continue a conversation with someone from work! He says that when I start talking it catches him by surprise because he knows I'm asleep! Do you know if you talk in your sleep?

Well nobody has ever told me I talk in my sleep. So i guess i dont talk in my sleep. But I do know my cousin does. Its kinda funny when we saw her talk in her sleep cause she sat up and her eyes are even open and she just suddenly lie down. Then we talked to her in the mornign about it and she said she didnt know about it. My cousins and I all had a good laugh about it!

I think that happened to me once! I remember that I was getting pretty stressed at work and brought the stress of the day home with me. During my deep sleep I apparently sat up in bed and started scolding someone for putting samples into the -80 degree freezer! After my outburst I laid back down and continued sleeping. In my boyfriend's own words: "You really scared the crap out of me last night! I thought you were possessed!" Charming!

Haha. That made me laugh too. It would really raise an alarm to me also with a sleeper scolding me...hahaha. Some say its the subconcious sometimes that works in our sleep thats why some people get to talk in their sleep with some things in their mind still. Well dont scare again your bf! Just kidding.LOL

No, I do not talk in my sleep that I know of. My husband has never mentioned me talking in my sleep before. I do know that they say that your subconscious mind has unfinished business or a personal problem, before you go to sleep.

Yes, this sounds about right! I used to talk in my sleep a lot when I was working in a very stressful environment. I don't recall dreaming about what I talk about though.

Seeing as I sleep by myself... I never thought I did, until one day I stayed over at my boyfriends. Being 17 at the time, his parents had us sleep in separate rooms. In the morning his father said he heard me talking and asked if i was on my cell phone? weird

I know I do, my husband knows I do and he says sometimes I even cry in my sleep, so much that he has to wake me up because I get panic attacks. This is not often either but when it happens even I get a bit spooked. I've woken up talking.
