    The time would pass quicker.

    I wouldn't have a thing to worry about. But I'd also be stuck with my dreams. There's no winning.

    sometimes I want to remain asleep forever.

    Sleeping helps me kill time.

    . It takes me away from all my sad thoughts, stresses, and heartaches.. The only part I dislike.. Is when I have to wake up feeling depressed again...

    This is something I would really like to do.

    I am currently sitting on the floor in my room. I am so tired, physically and mentally. I would love to go into a deep sleep and not wake up. I'm not suicidal but I do have depression. My mind is all over the place at the moment and my only real comfort is sleep.

    It's 3:20 am and I can't sleep.

    And I'm over thinking and getting suicidal. :/

    Sometimes my dreams don't make sense at all

    but I love it. Sometimes my dreams make me feel amazing and I love it. Sometimes my dreams leave me scared and gasping for air but I love it. If it's either a sweet dream, nightmare, or a dream I've already had, sometimes sleeping forever doesn't sound that bad.

    It's sort of what I feel like

    when I go under a general anaesthetic. Feeling like you've slept a year

    Depression. Wake up, eat something

    if you can bear it, go back to bed and wait for the day to end. Repeat. Until you pluck up enough courage to finish the bottle of sleeping pills under your pillow.

    I can control my dreams,

    I'm loved in my dreams. No one can hurt me, I'm strong, I'm proud, I'm beautiful. I feel safe rapped up in my warm duvet, It's like a shield I never want to take down. The one thing I'd change is having someone to share it with.

    I Just Want to Sleep.

    Sometimes I do wish I could just go to sleep forever.. or at least for a very long time. I love to sleep and I love to dream. It's just an escape from reality and I love it. Sleeping is so much better than staying awake and feeling so bored, lonely and depressed.. at least when...

    I'm not unhappy. But lately I'm always

    exhausted. Even when I get sleep it still never feels like enough. I haven't seen a Dr. so maybe I should double check but I love sleeping and wouldn't mind more of it.

    I wish I could sleep forever.

    I wake up each morning feeling like I have to tolerate the world once more before I can embrace the sweet feeling of REM sleep. Despite the complex and ever changing world around me, I wouldn't mind taking a long break from reality. I think everything is going to be okay...

    I wish I could be put into a medically induced

    coma sometimes. 'Cause when life gets hard or I'm having relationship problems, all I wanna do is go to sleep and wake up when it's safe to open my eyes. .... & It hasn't been safe in a very long time.

    Not in a suicidal way.

    I have gone a few years without a lick of sadness. I'm just always tired. I could use a nap that lasts awhile.

    Basically all I've been doing lately is going

    to work, coming home, getting high and sleeping. I don't even bother to put makeup on and my hair is an absolute mess. I shower every couple of days. Idk what's wrong with me but something has to change. I not sure how tho.. Nothing feels worthwhile anymore. I don't care about...

    Not just sometimes. Every day,

    to wake up is heartbreaking. I used to see the beauty in anything; everything. Waking up was something to look forward to, and sleep was the obstacle in the way of morning bliss. Where does that go? I know people my age who still wake up that way before they go to study or work...

    lifted off my shoulders but the weight is put back on when my 6 o'clock alarm starts to ring.

    Quite often my dreams are more interesting

    than real life. It feels a lot better to be asleep as well. However, it just so happens that you have to do quite a bit while awake in order to earn that sleep. Besides, it's not bad to thrive in your conscience once in a while.

    No matter how hard I try to get my life pieced

    together, there's always something she can suggest which my depressed and self pitying mind just couldn't find the motivation to do quite yet. I keep trying to convince myself that even a tiny step is still a step but she makes it so hard. She just repeats all the things I've...

    Sometimes, my mind cannot seem to stop.

    It races faster and faster with thoughts that become increasingly dramatic and scary. Thoughts like "It would be a good idea to just sleep forever". Sometimes it seems like a good idea. The world can look bleak, and from my personal perspective, it seems like it will always be...
