Sleep Talker

I have a tendency to talk in my sleep.  I usually just say a few random words and it doesn’t make much sense to anyone that may hear me.

I also have a tendency to move around, as if I am acting out a dream.  A few nights ago, I was dreaming about escaping a room with a trip wire at the door.  In my dream, I raised my leg high into the air and crossed over the wire.

In reality, I was sleeping on my side and was on the edge of the bed.  While asleep, I moved my leg over the edge of the bed and toward my head.  This caused me to slide off the bed.

I found myself on the floor after this rude awakening.  The first thing that came to my mind:  I can’t believe I just fell off my bed, how ridiculous.

Has this ever happened to you?  If you have any funny stories about things you have done in your sleep, please share it in the comment section.  I am sure I am not the only adult that falls out of bed on occasion.

Restless Legs Syndrome

Today is Restless Legs Syndrome Awareness Day.  I know Restless Legs Syndrome sounds like some crazy made up disorder, but it is real.

My mother has dealt with Restless Legs Syndrome for over a decade and it does cause a great deal of pain and suffering.

I created this info-graph to explain the disorder and the treatment options.
