I dont think Im being abducted...
This last monday I was watching T.V. at about 8:30 when I fell asleep on the couch, this I know for 100% sure... the next thing I remember it was just
after 2:00am and I awoke in my bed sweating like a mad man, alot of sweat, enough to make my sheets wet to the touch and also my blanket wet a little.
I remember dreaming just before I woke up (What I was dreaming, I dont know) and when I woke up instantly I was like "how the hell did I get to my
This (Waking up in my bed without know how I got there) has been happening to me to me alot of late (last 6 months).
~I was stone cold sober(no drinking), I had taken a toke off the bong with my roommate before dinner (5pm) but I do that everyday(for like 3
~I do not remember falling asleep but know I was in the process of falling asleep...
~The sliding door to the living room was wide open when it had been closed...
~The T.V. was on a different channel than I remember watching and my roommate turned it off...
~Some how I made it to my room and into my bed without remembering it...
~And when I asked my roommate if he saw me on the couch that night when he came home he said I wasn't there, or in my room, but my truck was
Now I have been known to sleepwalk, as a kid. I haven't had anyone witness me sleepwalking in about 10 years.
I should give you some back ground on my sleep walks; From the age of about 7-12 I would sleep walk quite a bit. Most of the time my mother would
catch me peeing in the bath tub, or brushing my teeth with the hair comb, or something along those terms... But every now and then my mother would
look at me weird in the morning and I knew I had done something extra special that night. These special nights I would do things that were extreme.
I had step brothers that were IMO a$$ holes at the time, to me and my brother. Constantly bothering my brother. So, in my sleep one night at about the
age of 10 I was told that I went to the kitchen, got the biggest knife I could find (all in my sleep) and went down stairs to my step brothers rooms.
This was late at night, so my step bro's woke up. I was told that I was standing there knife in hand at my side with the door open and the light on,
them in bed. They asked my me what I was doing and supposedly I belted out with a huge voice (like they had never herd, either my mother or my step
bro's) something along these lines or very close to "Silence! Both of you shut up before I have to go... Now both of you listen, if you ever bother
my brother again, verbaly, or physicaly I will be back to finish this job... GOT IT" Supposedly they didnt say anything, and were just looking at me,
and my mother who by this time was behind me kind of watching cause I was swinging the knife around. They told me that they didnt answer right away. I
then yelled out "GOT IT?", they said "Yes" and I turned around walked to the kitchen, put the knife away, and went to my bed. Needless to say my
step brothers never bothered me or my younger brother again. ever!
That was the most "extreme" sleep walk I have been told about. My mother said that I was almost speaking and acting in a different personality when
I would go into these extreme sleepwalk state where I would do rash things like that. The other times that I would sleep walk I would kind of bumble
around like a fool, totaly different than the extreme ones.
Now, there was 2 major things that were going on in my life at that time. One, I was being forced to use my right hand by my grandparents even though
I was distinctly left handed. You see in the Italian culture being left handed is a sign on "Sinistra", or it is considered sinister, or evil. The
second, how shall I put it... well not comfortable in telling the public. So I just tell you that I had a problem dealing with my past, I had held in
a secret for toooooo many years. These things all were the root of my sleepwalking problems. After I/my mother delt with the two problems I hadn't
been witnessed sleepwalking, till I suspect these last few weeks.
As of now, I feel as if I have delt with all those problems and dont hold them in to cause damage any longer. I have learned to deal with these type
of emotions pretty well, so Iam sure that these "new" sleep walks are not of the same kind.
The one thing that has been on my mind for a while is my sudden alergy to Wheat that surfaced about 2 years ago. Iam always dealing with this problem,
as it is hard to be a young man who partys and eats italian and not be able to drink beers, or eat bread and spagetti. I have had to alter my diet in
the last 2 years but I really dont feel like it is emotional straining or anything of the sort. It just hurts my digestive system to eat Wheat.
My questions are to anyone with sleep walking problems or anyone that is a doctor or have knowledge about sleepwalking...
1. Have you ever had streaches of no sleep walking, only to start up again (10 years in between)?
2. Did you have a certain thing that caused/causes your/a person to sleepwalk?
3. How did you stop your sleepwalking?
4. Can diet affect sleepwalking?
5. Can alergys affect sleepwalking?
Iam going to have my roommate keep an eye on me in the next little while and try to catch me sleepwalking, also Ive been thinking of video tapeing my
Anyways, I'm just looking for more information, and possibly someone else with the same deals that has had a solution for sleepwalking... or an
understanding for what causes it.
... the next step is the doctors if it keeps up like this.
