Ok within the past week I have been sleepwalking alot. Normally I just end up going to the bathroom, sometimes waking on my way back to bed. This past week I have been sleep eating. I wake up and I am sitting at the table eating STRANGE concoctions. Last night I was eating wheat bread with butterscotch topping (the kind for icecream) and maple syrup. Earlier in the week I woke up in bed with a terrible taste in my mouth. I went to go gargle or brush my teeth to get rid of the taste. On the kitchen table was an empty jar of pickles, part of a red bell pepper and half the condiments from the fridge. The ketchup, mustard, horseradish, and steak sauce. I practically gagged, thinking I could eat that, well at least all of it together. In the morning I also noticed that all my hubby's tastycake cupcakes were gone and it was a full box. Then I found all the wrappers under the table. If I had not woken up in the midst of eating these weird things, I would have blamed the kids. I have type 1 dibetes, so I work hard maintaining a good blood sugar during the day, so my morning lood sugars ar in the 300's. I am going to mess up my blood sugars bad if this keeps happening, but I dont know how to stop it. Also sometimes while I am getting things out of the fridge in my sleep, I am kinda aware of it. I just cant wake up or stop...its like I am a zombie. Hubby has seen me and says my eyes are open, and I even yelled at him to go away and leave me alone. This has me freaked out, and I dont know if it can be related to some other illness I might have or if it is an independent disorder. At the very least, let me know I am not alone.
