Sleep clinics say they are treating more people with sleep disorders than ever before, with more and more strange cases popping up.
Josh Bliszko says: "My latest trick is changing light bulbs in my sleep. And no, the light bulbs don't even require changing."
How about you, do you do weird things in your sleep?

- I read about a girl who sleeps for like months at a time. Gets up only to eat and use the bathroom, then goes back to sleep.
I sometimes can sleep for days like this myself; not sure *can* is the best word for it. But if I know I've nothing to do, nowhere to go, no way to go, going to be stuck for a week with little food, no company, etc... I sometimes find the only way to get through it is to hibernate. It's a slippery slope, though, and I prefer to be much more awake.

Is it like you were dreaming. Wondering if you recall doing these things in your sleep.
I remember trying to pick the flowers off the wallpaper because I woke up while I was doing it. I don't remember sleep walking though.
If I wake up my hubby by my chatter, I do vaguely remember talking rubbish if he tries to have a conversation with me.

What about you Johnny?
Some say I talk in my sleep sometimes, but I never managed to remember saying something. And sometimes I find myself sleeping with my head held in the palms of my hands, usually happens when I'm worried/tense/stressed.
- Here's a really weird example from a BBC website reader:
James Bath: "My wife watched me walk out of the house, get into my car and drive off. I returned 15 minutes later. It only happens occasionally and one particular time I got in the car and returned over an hour later. Having filled the car the previous day, I was able to calculate the mileage from the reset milometer. I had driven 35 miles. Nowadays my wife hides our car keys each night, I go for walks."

Patricia from France - "I have gone online and bought inappropriate dog equipment for my elderly Jack Russell terrier - two large size collars and a complete training course of slalom sticks, tunnel etc. My only clue to the fact that I had purchased anything was finding my purse and credit card beside the computer, not in their usual place. Subsequently, the arrival of the parcels from America was a complete surprise. Even more surprising was a phone call from a kennels about a puppy which I did not want but had ordered in a letter written in French and emailed in the middle of the night. My most disconcerting repeated actions have been writing letters which look OK but have bizarre and inexplicable content."
