Quite a scary condition if you ask me. Was around a friends last night, a small group of us went round to play Poker. Anyway, to cut the long story short, my mates girlfriend mentioned that she has been known to sleepwalk (and sleepdrive) it seems. I believe this too be true, but the thought of it scares the living shit out of me, I don't know about anyone else... A person, driving, who is effectively 'sleep walking' is worrying. Would they stop at traffic lights, what would happen if they broke the speed limit and were pulled over? There are even known cases of people killing others in their sleep. Seriously fucked up that is. I've not done anything to that extent, though used to sleep walk when younger. Apparently, I'd just go down stairs, walk around the living room, then go back to bed. Anyone else here sleepwalk, or been told they've done some crazy things whilst sleepwalking? From what I've read, you can practically do anything you'd normally do (cook food, watch TV, have sex, go driving, go shopping etc), but you'd not have any memory of it when you woke. Scary stuff I think.

I've seen people sleepwalking (not in real life, in videos) it's scary what people can get up to. I even saw a video of a person going to the toilet out the window, cooking and lots more...

Heard of a guy who killed his wife in his sleep once. :lol: Wonder what Freud would have said about that...

Odd.

I used to sleepwalk. My mom told me that I once tried to go through the laundary room door out into the garage, but just kept bumping the door because I couldn't figure out how to open it.

Scary indeed.

Well, one time I woke up mumbling, "Not safe, they'll be found. I'll be found. Not safe..." I was standing in the doorway to my room holding a baseball bat. Nothing was broken, so maybe the cold metal bat shocked me awake. Hmm. I agree, it is very scary. Almost...zombie-like.

That's... very scary.

Fortunately, I don't sleepwalk at all, never did, and hope I never will. :lol:

When I was in junior high I was at summer camp with my friend and we were sharing a room. She apparently forgot to tell me she sleepwalks and scared me to death when she woke me up be screaming at the top of her lungs. Completely asleep. Of course I was like 13 so I didn't know what to do about it. :p

Oh, yes, "sleepdriving". It's a good way to go from manslaughter charges to mandatory psychiatry visits.
