A MUM-OF-THREE set her own mouth on FIRE and nearly spent £200 on Disney merch while fast asleep.
Kelly Mitchell, 40, said she woke up clutching her ex-husband’s lighter with blisters covering the inside of her mouth and arms in the terrifying ordeal at home in Basildon, Essex.
Another night saw Kelly fill an online shopping basket with £200-worth of merch for Disney film Encanto – which she had only seen once.
Single mum Kelly – who has suffered from the rare sleeping disorder for years – has been left terrified for her safety after the episodes got progressively worse.
One horrifying night, she took a bottle full of diabetes meds while fast asleep.
Kelly was prescribed the pills while she was pregnant with her youngest son Carson – now six. The mum was rushed to hospital but luckily both she and baby were ok.
She told The Sun: “I have sleep apnoea. I do things in my sleep.
“The main thing is sleep shopping. Two nights ago I nearly bought £200-worth of Encanto merch. I had only watched it once.”
Kelly’s more sinister episodes have seen her set fire to herself – and she once took an overdose.
“I was prescribed metformin for diabetes when I was pregnant. I was having a dream where I was telling the doctor that I couldn’t take the medication any more.”
Kelly was rushed to hospital where she was admitted overnight for monitoring.
Both she and her baby were fine.
“I was quite lucky I was in my second trimester,” Kelly added.
“Doctors said if I had been in my first or the last it could have some nasty effects for me and the baby.”
I think people really underestimate sleep walking, I can do anything in my sleep.
Another incident saw her set fire to her mouth in 2018.
“I can only assume it was my ex-husband’s lighter. My arm and the inside of my mouth were all blistered and I woke up with the lighter.
“It scares me. I think people really underestimate sleep walking, I can do anything in my sleep.
“I am not allowed to drive because I could drive in my sleep.”
One other occasions, Kelly was stunned to get a surprise delivery of a £100 plastic basketball court she didn’t have a clue she’d ordered.
She’s also bought tins of paint, a Wendy house, two fridges and a table in some of her nocturnal shops.
Kelly added: “I have been making a lot of reservations at Argos to go and collect it in the morning. I just have to be really careful.”
