Do you talk in your sleep or dream aloud?
Last night I discovered I do.
It was about the same moment that I was rudely awoken by a few gentle *thumps* on my back that I realized that I was verbalizing my dream.
It wasn't a pleasant dream. I was upset, I was trying to yell out, but the words wouldn't come out right.
I heard it, I heard how I sounded when my husband woke me.
It was freaky. I scared myself. Clearly I scared him too...hence the gentle *thumping*.
When I mentioned it to him this afternoon he said I often talk in my sleep.
What the hell am I saying? I don't even want to know!
He said usually he just listens along but last night he said "it wasn't me".
I asked what he meant. I said I knew I sounded strained, I heard myself.
He said, "No, it wasn't you. It was like you were possessed."
Way to freak me the hell out, dude!
Now I'm almost too scared to go to sleep tonight.
I feel weird.
Like I've exposed too much of myself, but it wasn't even myself that I exposed.
Clearly I'm a little piqued right now.
Am I psycho?
Am I a freak?
Has this ever happened to you??
Please tell me I'm not nuts!
