Question: My partner of 2 years and I have just moved in together. Though its only been a week in our new home its been a week of HELL and sleepless nights on my account.
Every single night for the past week my partner has sleep talked. He has done it quite often during the 2 years and then stopped for a few months now it is worse than ever.Tonight for example he sat bolt upright and started frantically searching the bed and tearing the sheets off the bed talking about a metal hook – at first I thought he had a nightmare and when I questioned him he started repeating “metal hook” then he had a terrified look on his face and then got angry and told me not to bother and laid back down taking the sheets with him. I then questioned him a little further and he told me it was the metal hooks that hang the shower curtain up, then when i asked if he meant it was in the bed and it stabbed him all his reply was “F**k it I cant be bothered”. He was so angry at me and I have no idea why. He is now snoring away beside me as i write this.I am getting to the point where I can’t handle this anymore, between working and unpacking the house and not having much sleep I’m like a walking zombie. I have done a Google search and pretty much all that comes up is that it’s really not that common in adult males and that it seems to have no cure although ensuring the person gets enough sleep is frequently mentioned. Well what about those of us who have to deal with those who sleep talk/sleep walk? What are we meant to do?! If this is what is in store for the rest of my life with him I think I may have to create a separate bedroom for me!I need a solution for this situation as its driving me cuckoo. Please if anyone has any ideas on what to do (please don’t quote the websites about proper sleeping patterns as he is asleep by 9:30pm and gets up at 5:30am for work (Mon-Fri) and on weekends he sleeps the day and night away) please leave a comment with any suggestions you may have on this matter.Thank you for dealing with my rant.
