I recently started a new course of medication andn one of the side effects is extremely vivid dreams.
In my dream, my wife and I were taking a walk when we passed a guy who was cleaning his home. He moved suddenly and nudged my wife with his trash bag.
I said, “Hey, watch it!” He muttered an apology but immediately did it again. I said, “Buddy if you don’t knock it off, I am going to have to knock you out!”
He said, “I don’t believe you will,” and then 5 or 6 of his friends came out of nowhere. “Get her!” he yelled, and so I reacted as any protective husband would.
I punched and missed a couple of times so, on the third attack, I really leaned into it to make sure I made contact, and I did.
The next I know, my wife wakes me up yelling, “You hit me in the effing mouth.” It must not have been too hard, because she went back to sleep after I apologized.
TLDR: New medication gives me vivid dreams and I threw a punch in my sleep hitting my wife.
