Does anyone know if action dreams, or sleepwalking, can kill you?
I am sure one of these days my heart is going to give out after a night of action in my sleep.
Last night, I woke up screaming with my husband yelling at me to stop. I was dreaming Cosmo our kitten was pulled up to ceiling by his string toy and wrapped around the ceiling fan, which we do not have. I also lost our son and suspected he was up there, too.
Thankful, the baby was in bed and the kitten was lying calmly beside me.
The husband, not so much.
Not only was he extremely displeased I woke him up again, but I think he was embarrassed and kept checking the window and muttering ‘people will think I am murdering you in here.’
My heart was beating so fast and my body was trembling. It took a good 10 minutes before my heart returned to normal speed.
While camping with my mom, sister-in-law and niece, I had another action dream, this one seeing me push hard on the light above my head.
I dreamed someone was trying to get to my family through the light and I was pushing them back in the light.
I was thankful my mom woke me up because I think if she waited much longer I might have broken the light. Again, my heart was racing in fear.
They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger but I am wonder how many years my poor heart can handle this kind of drama.
