How to help?
If you ever face a situation, when someone sleepwalks, and you don’t know what to do, remember: The best thing to do is gently guide him back to bed, avoiding as much physical contact as possible and talking to him or her soothingly. The idea is to try not to wake the sleepwalker up. If sleepwalkers are startled out of their state they are prone to lashing out violently and can hurt themselves and the person responsible for waking them.
My recomendation? If you ever meet a sleepwalker, remember what i just said – just talk to him calmly and guide back to bed. But: If you also have simptoms that makes you think you have an somnambulism, don’t be nervous – it’s not an illness. Just follow suggestions i just mentioned, advise your relatives to look after you, and you will be alright.
