How weird, I had a nightmare last night & it was bad enough that I couldn't go back to sleep. It was one of those where everything seems so real and the bad man in my dream did seem real. I haven't had a nightmare in probably 15 or more years. I didn't go to bed until 1:30 or so and woke up at 3:30 with the nightmare. My hubby gets up at 4:00 for work, so I just stayed up because I was too scared to go back to sleep. lol
Maybe with you going to bed late & all the things on your mind? Did you eat anything late? They say sometimes that will also make you dream. It is probably a one time thing and you should quit worrying so much because all of this stress is not helping you! Take care!
Never regret something that made you smile!

Marlee....about ten years ago I woke myself up yelling 'Hail To The Chief'! I was sitting at the end of the bed with my legs hanging over and it scared the living crap outta me...pardon my French. Hail to the chief?? I didn't even vote for Clinton. Hubby heard me and just started laughing....when I sat up he just thought I was getting up to go to the bathroom. It hasn't happened again as far as I know so don't even think about it. ( if it does happen again make sure you scream 'break my ribs...break my ribs!)
Oh! So that's what that racket was last night!!
That can be disconcerting. Have you asked your doctor?
I've had yelling and other weird things for years. The other night I lept out of bed, tore the curtains down and tried to hide under the comfortor at the foot of the bed. Why? Because I dreamt my husband was shooting at the ceiling and the sprinkler fixters (which we don't have) were falling all around me.
Hubby asked, "What are you doing??!!" And I told him, "getting away." "Getting away from what??" At that point I woke up and was embarassed and slunk off to the bathroom.
That can be scary. I hope you relax today and get a good night's sleep, tonight and everynight.
I'm a BIG TIME sleep talker. I talk about everything. I'm always worried that I might say something that will upset the hubby. LOL, one night I was calling the dog.. I don't remember the dreams too often so I don't know why I was calling him.
I'd rather be a sleep talker than have my sister's sleep problem.. she's a sleep walker-sleep eater. One night she woke up making a Windex sandwich. When she lived with my ex and I we had to put a doggy shock collar on her ankle so she wouldn't keep falling down the stairs. She kept hurting herself in her sleep. She's on heavy duty doses of klonapin (sp?). Its been helping but she still occassionally takes a little walk, eats a stick of butter or something weird.
Take care and sleep tight,
I would not worry about it at all. You've got alot on your mind. I don't have nightmares too often and I just had one last week. I could have hollered out too, but no one would be here to hear me except 17 yr old son, and he sleeps like a rock.
Talk about strange doings with the voice activated tape recorder. Back in 1987, I was residence director at the YWCA, a place for transient, and homeless women. One of the ladies worked off her rent by cleaning rooms after women left. She came to me repeatedly asking why Rm. #10 was messed up, bed slept in and so forth, b/c there were no women registered in that room. Some of the girls were nervous, thinking someone was accessing that room at night. So I planted the voice/noise activated, tape recorder, under one of the beds. Next day I retrieved the tape recorder. We heard the fire escape being lowered, then more hushed voices, then heard whispering and then bed springs.
As it turned out the night clerk, was having a boyfriend or two come over to keep her company midshift till 8AM. Funny, but interesting, I'm sure. We exorcized the Ghost from Rm.# 10
Try not to let this upset you too much- You both have gone throught alot and I am sure you have been very worried about his health and even losing him. Under much stress I think alot of us do things we normally would not do. I agree, don't have him tell you if you call out his name in your sleep. You have got enough going on you don't need to worry about this.
