I’ve done a lot of research into sleeping and dreaming while working on the Dream Weavers series. I’m always on the lookout for interesting articles, and this one definitely caught my eye. The article in The Atlantic is already two years old, but, apparently, there’s a new parasomnia (sleep disorder) — sleeptexting. Seen mainly in the younger generation, people are actually sending texts while they sleep. And they’re not all gibberish. People are sending out messages, although they don’t always make sense or go to the right people. Can you imagine?
I only remember sleepwalking once when I was a teenager. I woke up in the basement — and I never, ever went to the basement after dark. Fortunately, it was a one-time incident. Have you ever suffered from sleepwalking? Ever sleeptexted someone?
