    Talking In My Sleep/Keeping Hubby Awake!!!!
    bpcookie posted:
    Hello my Dahlings, Ive had an issue with talking in my sleep for years now. Recently it has gotten worse. Last night it was so constant that it kept my hubby awake. Also it kept my dog awake also. She kept thinking that I was awake, so she kept jumping on the bed, which kept waking up my hubby again. Poor guy.

    Also, for the last year or so, I have been talking to myself, out loud, all day long. Its to the point that my voice is hoarse. Im not sure if the two are related but if they are, I need to figure out how to stop talking all day long.

    Have any of you or are any of you, going through the same thing? Do you have any suggestions as to how to stop? Especially how to stop talking in my sleep?

    Thanks. muahs.

    Cookie!!! I just wanted to say it's so nice to see your smile on the board. I talk to myself mostly when I am alone. It doesn't matter that I talk and laugh in my sleep because dh is such a light sleeper anyway lol
    A little yoga goes a long way
