Leading up to the 2000s sleepwalking was a phenomenon of combined sleep and wakefulness. Sleepwalking is still common in 5% of children and 1.5% of adults. But a new sensation has risen in the 2010s and forward. Sleep Selfie-ing. It is an oddity that is happening all over the nation.
Ever since Apple released the first iPhone in 2007, reports of what millennials are calling Bedstagraming have exponentially skyrocketed. Cases have been reported all over the U.S and mainly affect the 12-35 age range.
But sadly, people are not just taking pictures of themselves while they sleep, they are posting it to their social media after doing so. Some, having the little mindfulness they possess, are even posting a caption with the photo.
We interviewed a real doctor to get his take on things. Dr. Drake Ramoray of Chicago Lakeshore Hospital stated, “This isn’t a real disease, or illness, or whatever you want to call it, it’s just people faking it.”
Psychologist Amy Wojanowski also said, “People are just doing this for attention. I would diagnose them with ‘Histrionic personality disorder’ which is a personality disorder in which an individual needs constant attention…… even while they fake sleeping”

It even happened to Maria Carey
