Thanks for sharing that, Jane.
And good to hear you've outgrown the worst parasomnias!
My wife also tends to talk and sometimes laugh while she sleeps. And then, between somniloquies, she grinds her teeth as if she was gnawing on a bone. I used to wake up from that, but I no longer do. I guess I got used to it. Luckily, she doesn't kick nor punch me.
