FI has recently told me that when I’m asleep I’m terrifying like something from a horror movie.
In the four months we’ve lived together I’ve
-Elbowed him very hard in the face
-Sat up in my sleep, looked at him, and lain back down
-Had full conversations with him, during which I tell him I’m fully awake
-Shouted random words (my personal favourite is ‘silence & darkness!’, which we figure was me asking him to turn the TV off
-Slept with my eyes open
So I can’t blame him for being scared. Hell, if he did that I’d want to sleep on the sofa!But it got me wondering, are there any other bees out there whose sleeping habits make them seem like something possessed?

A few of those things are absolutely scary! LOL! Your poor FI! But I can’t stop laughing at picturing these things going on in my head. Hahaha!

I have the habbit of elbowing FI in the face while asleep as well. Sometimes get him with a knee in the balls as well.
You sound terrifying to sleep with though. Hahah.

@ZebraPrintMe: I do most of the things you have outlined. One day my husband woke up and I had the pillow in my hands and was facing him, with my eyes open, but was totally asleep. My husband got up and went to sleep to the couch. lol.

My SO is like that, though it’s calmed down in the past year! But he gets violent sleep-twitches, he sleep-talks, and I’ve woken up in the middle of the night to him standing at the end of the bed, staring at me.

I have a tendency to shoot awake in a blind fright at the smallest noise. It normally goes like this: cat knocks something over in the living room at 2:00am, I jerk straight awake with a gasp and go “what was that?!” and then FI says it was the cat, go to sleep, and I’m already gone. He’s told me once or twice that a few times I’ve done it without him hearing any noise, though, and then it creeps him out, hahah.

I am apparently a vicious kicker in my sleep, but FI and I sleep in separate twin beds right now so it’s not an issue. The most recent thing I did that disturbed FI was wheezing and sobbing in my sleep at the same time because I’m talented like that. My college roommate would talk out loud in coherent sentences in her sleep. The weirdest one was *singsong voice* ‘going up the stairs, going up the stairs, AHH DEMONS!’ on repeat. Sometimes when I told her what she was saying she’d tell me what she had been dreaming about. In one dream her father was kidnapped by a midget pimp…

aww! I don’t think I do anything scary, but I have had phone conversations with him while asleep, which I think it pretty impressive.

My FI told me that I often sing in my sleep and I giggle quite a bit. I’ve laughed myself awake before. He says it’s super creepy.
My sister and I shared a bed once while we were visiting family. In the middle of the night, she sat straight up, shook me awake and frantically asked me where we were. I said “We’re at grandma’s!” then she looked at me incredulously and asked “ROME?!” so I said, “No, GRANDMA’S!” and then she punched me in the nose and went back to sleep. She didnt’ remember any of it.

I am a pillow theif – like literally pull all the pillows out from under my dh’s head.
I also have full on conversations, and I also try to convince him im awake, when clearly I’m not. I have an app on my iPad called Sleep Recorder that records noise in the night while you’re sleeping and it picks up some pretty funny conversations.

When we first moved in together DH would kick me, elbow me, and wake me up with his random spoken words in the middle of the night. Or he would involve me in a conversation he was in having in his dreams. After a few months he seemed to realize someone else was in the bed and stopped flaying around like a fish out of water. As far as the sleep talk I think he stopped it or I just got use to it so it no longer wakes me up.

I am guilty of it all. We sleep in separate rooms.

I have no sleeping habits that I’m aware about (both my and my bf are heavy sleepers), however it is now bedtime for me and I’m crying in bed reading your stories, I feel for you all but man is this funny!!!!!

Wow! You all have some crazy habits! I had friends back in school days that slept like you all. Kicking and talking…etc. I sleep pretty normally. No snoring or drooling, no talking or any violence lol. The only thing I do that drives my husband crazy is I flop from side to side all night. He drools and sometimes snores. We have to sleep with separate blankets because he is the WORST blanket hog. I got tired of waking up cold!

@ZebraPrintMe: lol thats a serious list of terrifying things!
I don’t usually do too many things on my own but if DH kisses me or tries to move me while I’m sleeping I usually speak some gibberish that is barely recognizeable and makes no sense at all… he loves it cuz he thinks its hilarious and I don’t remember a thing the next day.
I wonder why you’re doing all that…? Maybe you should go for a sleep study!
