    To be honest, I don't want to sleep forever,

    but it's better than dealing with reality

    I remember craving oblivion

    since I was 8 years old, I would get excited to have the weekend off from school just so I could sleep.

    Sometimes it just seems better to just stay in

    bed and not confront my problems. But then I remember there may be someone out there that feels worse than I do and I may be able to help them.

    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.

    This day and all the other days the past few

    years it have been a struggle to get out of bed. I do wish to sleep forever and never wake up again, or that somekind of accident happens to me that will make me in that state. That way I don't have to hurt my surroundings by taking my own life. I feel lonely, I feel envious of...

    Since I've started school two weeks ago,

    sleep is something that seems too expensive to have, something that I don't have time for and even on weekends Argh I need a vacation like now.

    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...

    Not because I can dream

    while sleeping. I just would like to sleep, solitude, peace and painlessness is what I'm craving to reach.

    Running away from my problems,

    getting away from everything and everyone who makes me feel worthless, and to stop having mixed feelings all the time

    today, now i also have social stress. i had said a bit of a harsh (not too bad) thing about one of my friends, and now i'm trying to apologize but he refuses to message me back (which is ironic because i had gotten mad at him for ignoring me in the first place). i ALWAYS have to...

    I'm always sleep because I'm not reminded

    that I'm failing school, I'm not getting yelled at, I'm not getting told to do a million and one things while everyone else who lives in the house is playing the xbox or on the computer or whatever.

    I think it might be my medication

    but I can sleep all day and still be able to sleep all night. Sometimes I want to sleep forever. And sometimes I want to sleep forever, and by this, I mean die.

    than normal, because my dreams are better than reality.

    The problem is not wanting to sleep forever,

    it's wanting to never wake up again.

    in this group, but yes sometimes I do want to remain asleep with what I was woken up to this morning. I've spoken a little about my cousin Luigi who has a learning disability. This morning he woke me, bumping into my bed, completely naked with a ha-rd-on which he was rubbing...

    Don't worry I'm talking about death.

    I mean that I wish my dreams could follow me into reality. Like in my dreams I can do anything, I can be anything. I can be a fierce knight fighting off monsters and dragons laying my life down to prove to the king that he needs me more than I need him. I can be the person that...
