When I sleepwalked while taking Ambien medication, I have my eyes open and walk, talk and do everything normally. I have done this several times with my kids or my husband. They don't know to this day that I have no memory of the incidents at all. For instance, I was staying with my daugther one night. Apparently my grandson woke up in the middle of the night and wanted Grammy. I asked my daughter "why didn't you wake me up?"....and she said "I did...and you rocked him back to sleep" -- I sort of changed the subject saying "Oh, right!" - so she doesn't know I have no memory of rocking him back to sleep. Apparently, I did a fine job rocking him and putting him back to bed. I am not about to tell anyone that I was not conscious...I'm old...they may put me in a "home"Originally Posted by Zaius
My youngest daughter walked in her sleep a lot when she was in grade school. She started getting ready for school at 1am - we would have to gently tell her that it wasn't time (her eyes were open, she looked like she knew what she was doing)...usually, her sleepwalking self would get mad at us and tell us "Okay, nevermind!!!" and go back to bed. She had very little memory of what happened...although she sometimes remembered the being mad and yelling "Okay, nevermind!!"
