My poor husband did not get very much sleep this weekend, for it was almost as though he had to take care of some old, confused person with "sun-downers" (which is a type of condition where normal elderly people get totally confused, disoriented, looney, and demented when the sun goes down....hence the name)
I just told him, "Well, now you know what it will feel like when we grow old together"
Lord, I hope not.
Twice this WEEKEND ......I sleep walked!!!
Thursday night, I just found myself wandering around the bedroom -- also talking to him. No biggy.
Then Saturday night, (I only VAGUELY remember this)........I apparently got up to go to the bathroom.
All was well. I crawled back into bed. I was alert & awake for this
Then about 20 minutes later, I got up again
I started rummaging around the room. Going into our closet. Flipped on and off the light switch.
And this is how our conversation went:
Ryan: "Abby....?? Is everything okay? What are you looking for?"
Abby: *in an almost tearful voice* "I'm just real disoriented right now and I don't know where I'm going!"
Ryan: *laughing* Well, why don't know come back to bed?
Abby: *still tearful* "I just don't know where our bed is!!!"
This was the point where Ryan had to sit up, and direct me back to the bed.
I've always been a weird sleeper. I've always been kinda restless, a talker, and a laugher in my sleep.
But never have I sleep-walked so much! I've done it 3 times in the past 2 months! I wonder if I attempted sleep walking at all when Ryan out-of-town last week???
Let's hope this is a phase! And a short one at that!!!
I wonder if maybe I'm starting to get used to sleeping during the day, when it's slightly light in our room - so when I sleep at NIGHT when it's totally dark.
Is the a crazy, weird side effect of the melatonin? I only have to take it when I sleep at night -- b/c that's the only time I have trouble now days. The bottle did warn that dreams may be funny.
It DIDN'T say "You will sleep walk like a loon around your house after taking this medications" ...however.
Do you sleep walk ever? Sleep talk? Am I the only one in this world that does this over the age of 6?
