Is it really possible to be “sleep drunk” when extremely sleepy or tired? If so, what’s the cause of the feeling and why does it happen
When I used to work a really early shift, I’d be close to knocked out by 8pm. My boyfriend’s told me many times that I, sometimes, say and/do the weirdest things when I’m about to fall asleep. Most of the time I can remember saying or doing these weird things, but it almost feels like they were impulsive reactions that I had no control over.
If anyone could give me some insight as to what being “sleep drunk” really means (if it’s even a thing), and how to prevent/cope with it, I’d really appreciate it!
