omg that’s terrifying!  Maybe he should see a therapist?

You might want to ask him mom if this is common behavior for him or if this is a sleep thing. Either way, that’s scary if you’re not going to feel safe sleeping with him.

My SO sleepwalks, and apparently I’ve started to as well (It’s contagious now, it seems. I’ve never done it before.) and unless it’s a common thing, I wouldn’t be afraid of it. I have been with my SO since March and living together since July and I have only seen him sleepwalk once.

Talk to his mother, or perhaps him. Is this a common occurance? As far as I know, there isn’t any “treatment” to sleep walking.

I’ve sleep walked once when I was 8 and found myself sleeping on the floor in the bathroom downstairs. Don’t know how I managed to get there, but it never happened after that. I agree with pp’s about talking to his mom to find out if this is a usual thing for him. I would be worried, too. I once had a friend sit up in her sleep and tell me she was going to drown me in her turtles tank and then laid back down and went to sleep. I don’t sleep over at her house anymore lol. She didn’t remember anything in the morning and blamed it on spicy food. Don’t think there is a correlation, though. Seems too random.

He needs to get treatment, or somehow stop it. Hopefully he wants to, for your sake. What was your FI’s reaction when he found out he almost hurt you?

Thats is very scary! I think you should start visiting a sleep specialist, and maybe even a therapist

@stepchild:  He sleepwalks, he can’t guarantee that!

Get him to a sleep clinic and discuss this until he does. If he doesn’t I would tell him that you do not feel safe sleeping in the same house so you will get a separate bedroom and lock it each night.

@stepchild: I think you should explain to him that this past time he kicked you, and the only reason he stopped is his mom woke him up, but when your married his mom wont be there, and you could get seriously injured, your safety is the most important thing
