The only person in my entire family who does sleep walking is my father. He said that this can only manifest when he's really tired. Its rarely happens and I only seen it several times in my entire life. My mother is very vigilant at night to check on my fathers sleeping that we only discovered it when we are already on our teens. Do you have a sleep walker in your house?

ahahaha:p my third brother is a sleep walker, sleep talker...almost everynight he does that at around 2am..and i so hate it because i get disturbed by it. sometimes it's funny and instead of getting pissed by it, i just laugh at it especially when we start teasing him about it. hehe:P i believe it has something to do when they are tired and yes when very stressed. because now that my brother is currently sick and he is forced to sleep early, he doesn't have any sleeping disorders. good that he don't have it for how many weeks now but i hope he'll fully recover.

I, myself was once a sleep walker. But it happened only once in my entire thirty six years of living. It happened when i was at the age of eight or nine. It was a sunny afternoon when all my entire family were watching television when suddenly i got up and saw me "sleep walking". When i woke up, my sister told me the whole story and i was really shocked. Can't believe it happened to me or it had something to do with having a fever.

Oh yes!! my husband sleep walks. He does this most nights but only a couple of times have i caught him doing something that could either be dangerous or embarassing!! For instance I caught him walking downstairs to go and pick someone up from the local pub,he was just about to walk out of the front door,naked!! This was at 3 in the morning and the friend he was 'picking'up was on holiday in another country!!

I used to sleepwalk when I was a grader. One morning, my father asked me what I did because I went down the house in the middle of the night. But I said I couldn't remember. My father already had an idea that I was sleepwalking because it looked like.

hello there! from my father and my uncle down to me and my kids, we all are sleep walkers from time to time, not all the time though. we sleep-walk especially if during the day we were overly fatigued and we're knocked out due to tiredness. it's really awful and funny and embarrassing.

We've seen our brother sleep-walked when he was young. He fell asleep after playing too much. We saw him caught a dragonfly and he woke up when our mother call his attention. One time, he also peed on our shoes while sleep-walking. That was so weird. He didn't know what he was doing. But now that he's a grown up, the disorder no longer manifests.

I don't have in my house but I saw once in my ex-boyfriend's house. He is his little brother. When he was sleeping, he walked to the window side and opened the window, he tried to climbed over the window. It was terrible and scary. My ex-boyfriend ran to hug him back and woke him up. He really didn't know what was he doing at that time

No Not in the house, but my grandmother sleep walks. My late brother had gotten many photos of her whilst sleepwalking as she didn't believe or want to admit she'd eat in her sleep! Things she's not supposed to eat or it will give her a migraine, but she'll get a mirgraine or at the very least a bad headache the next day or few days later. I've slept walked before. When I was younger I Slept walked and used the toilet except it was the kitchen sink! lol!

My nephew would sleep walk when he was a child. Sometimes he'd be sleep walking and he'd walk past us and go to the kitchen and just stand there while sleeping. He doesn't do that anymore though so I think the habit is gone, thankfully.

I think my 9-year old is prone to sleepwalking. Ever since he was a baby, he would sleep with us on the bed. A few years back we forced him to sleep on his own bed, in his room. Most nights he would wake up in the middle of the night and run to our bed. One time, late at night I came across him while he was running to our room. I asked him where he was going. He said he was going to the library in his school. I think he is dreaming during these episodes, and is just sleepwalking.

Hmm.. not really. I guess we don't really have someone who'd really go out or do something. Most would just run in their sleep (with running motion in their beds) or talk. Some would just go stand up then lie down once again. The only noted sleepwalker in the family was my grandmother. She was said to have gone down from the 2nd floor of the house and went and took a shower only to be awakened when she was wet with her clothes on. Hehehe.. But that was just once.
