Hey! Do you guys have any sleep walking stories you can share? Funny ones? Embarrassing ones? Even scary ones? I remember watching this documentary on tv in which people did strange things while they were asleep. There was this extraordinary story about a man who draws in his sleep and his drawings were a work of art! In the day time when he's actually awake, he could never draw like that. When I was younger I turned on the radio on full blast at night and the next day, I never remembered doing it. So any tales you guys want to share?

I have not experience sleep walking. I can't imagine myself sleep walking. I am a person who can be awaken easily maybe that's the reason why I have not experience sleep walking. But a friend of my daughter would tell my daughter that she had experience sleep walking and would almost go outside their house in the middle of the night, good thing that her father was awaken and she was stopped then. I find it scary sleep walking, it's dangerous.

Yeah it is! Because you're asleep, you have no idea what you're doing. I'm glad I don't sleep walk anymore.

I know this is an old thread but I had to add a personal experience. Every since I was about 4 or 5 I would have the same sleepwalking dream. It could happen at home or at a relatives home, anywhere. Basically after falling asleep at some point during the night I would wake up from the same dream of needing to find a light switch on a wall. I would walk around an entire room bumping into whatever was in the way until I could find a wall. I would walk an entire room just feeling the walls looking for a switch. It was always traumatic when I was a child and frequently walk up bawling having never found the switch but would instead be woke up by someone walking into the room asking me what was wrong. Worst experience occurred at my aunts home. Bedrooms were located upstairs on second floor. I woke up thy time at the bottom of the staircase with everyone looking down on me once the light was turned on on the stairs. I was about 5 or 6 when that happened. It happened on a regular basis until I was about 19. As I've gotten older, talking 20+ years now, I seem to be more aware of myself in my dreams and can almost always control what is happening. Reoccurring dreams and nightmares still happen on a regular basis though. Thanks for letting me share an odd part of my life. : )

I have this nanny who told me this story. Her son who frequently sleep walks have done this blooper. Their bathroom is near their bedroom. One day during his sleep walking episodes he was dreaming that he was doing some gardening and have think about watering the plants. So he proceeded to do just that. Lo and behold, he was peeing on his parents face. At the same time his mother was also dreaming that she was bathing in the rain. Only to taste that the "rain" was slightly salty and have woke up to find that her son had been peeing.

Woah! I wasn't expecting that! Funny what you can do when you're sleep walking. Thanks for your story.

As a kid, I used to sleep walk quite a bit. My mom has so many funny stories of me sleep walking, and such. None were really extremely scary or anything like that. They were more funny and a little embarrassing, more than anything else.

Haha... like me, I would sleep walk when I was child. Once I started running around the house looking for a light switch and I woke up all my parents up for no reason. The next day, they told me about it and I was like "As if". What's creepy about sleep walking is that you have no idea what you did last night.

Last few years, in our home, i usually slept late at night. I slept beside my brother. My brother and my parents slept first then when i finished watching television, that time i will go on our bed to sleep. Passed midnight i am still awake then my brother stand but his eyes were closed and he is talking anything and few minutes then he went to our bed and sleep again. Last few weeks and last week, while he is sleeping, he again is talking something that is not in our language it is just like murmuring and i don't understand him. Lastly, i have here something to share to you this is from my classmate. Hope you may like it, it is a story. "Kervi was studying his lesson in his bedroom, when he heard a her mother's voice calling him to go out from his room to go to the kitchen for food. While he is running towards the stairs, his mother grabbed him and said,"Kervi, don't go there, i heard it too." " Another one here: "My friend Ian said to his father that he wants to move to another house because there was a ghost inside there mansion and he is afraid of the ghost but his father didn't believed in him and his father want to stay in their mansion no matter what. But when his father asked him who said that to him, Ian told his father that their babysitter said it to him. Then he said to Ian that Ian was right because they have no babysitter and their last babysitter was murdered inside their mansion few months ago which Ian didn't know." I just want to share this. I don't know if it is scary or not for you.

Luckily I don't sleep walk but I do sleeptalk sometimes. When I wake up in the morning I feel like I said something in my sleep and when I ask my mom she would tell me I did talked. Now that I am married, I haven't sleepwalked for quite sometime and I don't feel the loss of not doing it anymore either.

Oh yes! There's sleep talking as well. A friend of mine at camp laughed in her sleep when I was awake in the middle of the night.

I do have one and it goes way back to my elementary days. We were out having a jamboree on one of the local remote mountains. It was still early in the evening but I felt so sleepy. I slept in our very small tent which, by the way, is home to 20 of us. I can still remember the dream I had. I was out looking for the robot I have just invented. The next thing I remember was that I woke up in someone else's tent, angry because on of the guys sleeping above my head kicked my head good. My anger vanished when I could not recognize a single face of them - I WAS IN SOME OTHER SCHOOL'S TENT ! My classmate told me that he saw me walking into the woods. He didn't notice I was sleep walking. He thought I was urinating, so he went back to sleep. Three other classmates of mine saw the phenomenon too. Good thing I end up in someone else's tent than in something else's stomach.

Wow really? You guys went camping in the woods? That's like the worst place to to do some sleep walking. You were lucky you just ended up in someone else' tent and not somewhere dangerous in the woods. No one wants to accidentally get eaten, fall or drown while asleep.

I don't have such stories to share. But I want to say what I hear from my teacher is that a boy who studied in boardiing school walks in sleeping goes to nearest pool and bath and come to bed. When he woke up his body is wet. His friends want to find the mystery behind this. So one day none of his sleep and find that he was walking in the sleep with eyes open, his friends tried to stop him and the boy was hospitalised. The doctor said he was in a position to lose his life and dont interept anyone who walks in sleep.

Woah... Really? That's really scary. Sometimes sleep walking is really dangerous. My Mum told me that never try to wake a person who is sleep walking because during that time, they have no idea what they are doing so they might accidentally fall or hurt themselves.
