I'm new to the website, and don't know much about sleep disorders, but i know i need some help.
When i was younger, i used to sleep walk all the time, practically every night. All i would do was walk into each room, turn on everyones lights, and then go back to bed.
I also remember occasionally seeing bugs, or spiders on the wall when i woke up in the middle of the night. And i had a bed wetting problem aswell
Eventually the problem went away, and i i havent been prone to sleep walking in quite some time.

I'm 16 now, and i think the sleep walking has come back, but I'm not too sure what to do about it, as ive never herd of somthing like this happening.
I think whats happening is I start sleep walking, and then wake up in the middle of sleep walking, and my mind just figures I'm up getting ready for school. I dont know why, but out of all the times i've done this, i've NEVER looked at a clock. I just assume its time for school, and have a shower. Once ive gotten dressed and what not, i go downstairs to watch tv, only to find its 2am. When i try to go back to sleep, i have an extremely hard time, and obviously can't function the next day because of my lack of sleep the night before.

Tonight, i did the same thing, but it happend way earlier than usual
I went to bed at 8pm, as i was very tired, and ended up waking up at 11pm. Of couse, at the time i thought it was 6 am, and didnt realise it was 11 until i had gone downstairs for breakfast.

If you have any idea on whats going on with me, please help.
I need some answers now, i dont want my schooling to fall because of this.

thanks :]

  • Wear a watch to bed and start checking your watch right before you have a shower, every time (like, every day when you're not sleepwalking). Make it a habit.
