I’ve been married for about 7 years now and periodically my husband will do some strange things in his sleep. Sometimes I’ll unknowingly brush up against him or make a noise and the next thing I know he’s sitting up yelling profanities at me and sometimes even hitting me.
When I ask him if he remembers, most of the time he doesn’t, and he thinks I’m just making up stories. I know he sometimes will have something to drink before bed, and I also know when he’s under stress it also happens. What can be done?
