Since I was little, I've always been very active during my sleep. I talk a lot when I'm dreaming and I will often kick or punch my blankets. This happens the most after I eat red meat or food that is too "yeet hay". My sister has even heard me shout out profanities from the other room at night. "F*CK YOU!", "SHUT THE HELL UP", and so on. This must be surprising to most of you considering how well mannered and non-violent I usually am when I'm awake.
This has never really been a problem since I used to sleep alone. But since I've started dating and sharing a bed with other boys, this active dreaming has got me in a bit of trouble. In a previous relationship, there was one night where I ended up punching my ex in the face while I was asleep. What really got me in trouble was when I told him the truth in the morning that I was actually dreaming about punching him. I should've lied.
Well, last night when I was sharing a bed with my current main squeeze (who I haven't given a proper pet name yet. He will temporarily be called Muffin), I had a nightmare where I was in the shower and vampiric zombies were attacking me. I woke up to Muffin making light whimpering noises and me kicking him aggressively. I apologized and went back to sleep. In the morning he told me that I actually kicked him five times and he thought I'd stop after the first few kicks but finally decided to wake me up. That was smart because the zombies weren't going to stop attacking so I would've kept kicking. Luckily, Muffin was very forgiving.
