Somniloquy or Sleep-talking. Do you have homies who do this?

I've had a couple of homies who sleep talk and it's hilariously annoying sometimes when you're in the middle of your REM cycle and suddenly you hear them talk or sing. People said you can ask their secrets and they would be open to you but I am not comfortable doing this and never does. One night I had a new roommate who had to leave very early in the morning and few minutes after she had closed the door behind her, another roommate said, You take care, okay? Bye! I was stunned nevertheless giggled by myself.

My husband and I both talk in our sleep. : ) HOWEVER, we actually talk to each other. : ) One night I can remember waking up and we were both looking for a tool he needed to fix the truck. Apparently it was under the blankets somewhere and we were both looking for it. My husband also sleepwalks and whenever I feel him getting up out of the bed I usually just grab him and pull him back down. We don't make fun of each other as we both talk in our sleep, but it does make for some interesting conversations the next day. : )

I had never thought of it as being unusual. : ) I may do a search myself and find out how unusual it is. This happens probably once every other month or so. Now my curiosity is piqued.

Well, I do sometimes talk during my sleep. My wife tells me that I'm still lecturing during my sleep and sometimes I just mumble things. It's funny to think that your day at school has not yet ended as I still lecture hehe.

My ex-girlfriend that sometimes that I would talk in my sleep at night and it made her laugh. I do not remember what she told me that I said while I was sleeping but I remember her telling me that. I don't think that I do this a regular basis though it probably happens more times than I realize. I have never experienced anyone talking in their sleep as of yet.

I have a farm help whose entire family comes to work during weekends. I allow them to occupy one of the rooms in the house. It is funny how the husband sleep talks. Really loud and clear as though awake. If anyone will talk to him along the line of his utterings, it is amazing how he give relevant answers. He knows that his wife and kids make fun of this habit of his, but he finds it amusing,too, and laughs with all of them all the way, as the entire scenario is being narrated in his presence.

Wow!that's really cool B-D The reason why he can give relevant answer is that he's practically awake. His subconscious mind is awake but not his conscious mind which makes him unable to have enough control of his actions.

Yes, I heard from others that it's stress-related. It's good no one asks you questions about your tope secrets, eh?

Portrait of Jesus Christ - As painted by an artist. This does not mean that it's the real face of Jesus.
I thought it was creepy too but when I looked it up on the net I changed my opinion. They are awake subconsciously but their conscious mind is not which makes them unable to have a full control of what's going on.

I think you room mate was half awake and when she saw your other room mate leaving the room, she just said you take care, okay. I don't sleep talk but I snore very loud :D

You think so? I think you have never had a sleep-talker roommate. Actually, sleep talkers are awake subconsciously, which you are right at a certain point. You can read other's responses to this discussion and you will know more.

I'm lucky that my experience from sleep-talkers are now long been gone!;) I have an uncle who sleeps like that, especially when he's drunk. Not only that, he also moves alot when sleeping. We used to sleep on a double decked bed, he's on the lower part and I'm on the top. Whenever he's drunk, he moves alot and utters words that I can't understand. The only thing I do is slap him!;)LoL But I feel sorry for his wife, she's the one now who suffers on his unusual behavior while sleeping. I only try to laugh about it, and tell her that he's gonna be her worst nightmare forever!;)

Hi Jemina! My hubby is like that! He sometimes talks in his sleep. I think this is stress related because he usually does this when he comes home from work late and really tired. Sometimes I would hear him with a stern voice making orders to his subordinates, I suppose. And sometimes, he would say different kinds of food. I guess all that stress makes him hungry,lol :) I've tried talking to him while he sleeptalk but I forget what we talk about the next morning, lol.

You do? :-D Maybe you can ask him secret questions eh? oopsss!! It should not cause trouble. Sorry, I was only kidding. Maybe you're right that it's stress related. Well, leave him alone then and let him sleep peacefully instead. Thanks Sophy!
