Unhappy anyone talk in their sleep? - January 10th 2018, 01:39 AM

This is really embarrassing but when I was sleeping by my friend's, her mom said she overheard me talking in my sleep but that she purposely did not listen because she knows it can be embarrassing depending on what I say. I also am a heavy snore-er. But some nights are more than other nights.

Anyway, I know in sleep away camp, the counselors had asked if I was okay one morning and I was like yeah why are you asking? and they were like oh, no reason, just that you were "loud" last night. I then figured out from thrm and campers that I was screaming in my sleep.

Also there's that story my sisters and cousins laughed at me for non stop. One time we were having my cousins sleepover at ours' and that's rare btw because the apartment is small but they might be been snowed in or something. Anyway, we watched Cinderella to find out if the cat was black or white (we argued about this and even though the cat was evil, my sisters wanted the cat to be black like our cat and our cousins wAntes the cat to be white) Anyway I fell asleep midway and starter screaming in my sleep. Apparently I said "nooooo. I do not want to be cinderella"
Obvioudly we were kids and they probably just went with what it sounded most closely to. I doubt I said that but it made a funny story. I van believe I said "nooo" but probably mimbued the redt. Regardless, I was actually somewhat treated like cinderella and no I don't like that feeling. Whatever, I'm off topic.

How do I overcome feeling embarassed by this? It wasn't mentioned to me in a long time till a few days ago by my friend's mother. Sleep away camp was 10 years ago and my cousins sleeping over was 13 years ago.

I was at a grief camp but I was having panic attacks all night and barely slept, both years I went. My father whom I've shared a room with haven't mentioned this to me. I mean we aren't close anyway. And my older sister said I talk in my sleep and snore but and I think my 2 younger sisters have mentioned it bit like I don't want more people finding out.

I don't think I talk in my sleep. But I have in the past slept walked, had sleep paralysis, potentially laughed in my sleep, and have kind of woken up (but not quite) and looked for things under my pillow, or panicked and got out of bed worrying about intruders. No-one has ever witnessed these things, but I do understand how they could definitely be embarrassing.

But with things related to sleep, you don't have much control over it. I think perhaps just accepting that it happens and you don't have control over it, might help with the embarrassment a bit. If you are in a position where someone might hear you talking in your sleep, you can just let them know that it might happen (if you feel comfortable doing that). Talking about it and perhaps laughing it off as something that just happens, can also help as with embarrassment we feel we have done something that we could've done differently. But this isn't the case with sleep related things. Also, sleep related issues are quite common, so many people should be understanding and you can always ignore the ignorance of those that don't understand.
