I attacked my girlfriend in my sleep
This morning I woke up next to my girlfriend, and I rolled over to cuddle with her as normal. As I went over to cuddle with her, she said to me “We need to talk about what happened last night.”
I didn’t know what she was talking about so I asked her. Last night i apparently got on top of her and put my elbow in her neck, choking her.
She said she freaked out then I stopped and apologized, then tried to cuddle again.
However, I don’t remember any of this happening at all, so I had to have been asleep or at least barely awake while it happened.
This isn’t exactly the first time this has happened. I’m an amateur fighter so I dream about fighting a lot, so there’s been times where I’ve kicked her lightly while sleeping, and even once I put her in a headlock, but I always remembered exactly what happened dream included.
But with this, she says my eyes were open and I looked angry at her. And I don’t even remember the dream.
And right now she’s terrified of me. Is there anything I can do?
