Its difficult to describe sleep walking in a way that others understand. When I sleep walk, my eyes are open and I incorporate my surroundings into my dreams. I often remember the episodes, hazily when I awake. In fact the act of sleep walking usually wakes me up mid way through it.
For example, once I thought that I had to jump over a opening in the ground to save myself. So I did and landed on the floor of my bedroom confused and with an aching head. It took me several moments to figure out what had happened. I dreamed that my bed was the cliff and jumped over the footboard. :eek: Another time I went to the bathroom because I dreamed that I had to get medicine for sick children and the medicine came out of the faucet. I woke myself up getting back to bed. Luckily I did not turn water on myself.:rolleyes: Because I sleepwalk with my eyes open, I was able to piece together in each instance what I did. I sort of have a memory of each episode. I would have a hazy memory of barking at the moon.
I suppose that I could understand why someone might think that a sleep walker was possessed. But I don’t have super strength when I sleep walk. I don’t buy that this woman couldn’t control her small six year old child.
