"NTA...I have PTSD and a nightmare disorder. I don't wake up screaming or anything but I do sometimes cry and wake up gasping for air, etc. If it was something that I thought would wake others up.. not only would I inform those whose home I'm sleeping in but maybe not stay there and get my own place to not disturb others. Common sense and courtesy on my part!" 🙏
