    Sleeping Is Better Than Life.

    Some days I wake up and remember I have no job, no friends, nothing to do and the thought of showering and deciding what to have for breakfast is overwhelming. So I just keep giong back to sleep. After 12+ hours I feel almost hungover.

    Eternal Sleep Sounds Lovely <3

    I love sleeping so much, especially ever since I've conquered my insomnia I've been so tired and I tend to sleep a lot. My dreams are usually super vivid and are so much better then my reality. I wish I could just fall asleep peacefully forever, stay in my wonderful dream world...

    I am really wanting to sleep forever tonight.

    I usually hate being negative but my anxiety is really bad and I just want it all to stop.

    The holidays are great,

    but 4 hours of sleep isn't working for me. It's like the bags under my eyes have bags under them too.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Wow I never knew other people thought this too.

    .. It is slightly reassuring to find im not the only one. But the down side is how frequently this thought comes into my mind.... It's breaking me, an im starting to realise, that if I was strong enough to do it, I would.... Sleeping is where I find comfort, because while I'm...

    I'd like to just go to sleep

    and not be called upon to help people or be there when I've lost someone I love so much. It'd be nice to just not be needed for things.

    A feeling of cold, hard steel on the roof of

    the mouth. "It's okay," she says. "You can go. You can sleep. Nobody will judge you." It takes some effort, but I squeeze back. A deafening boom... silence. Sleep now. This won't hurt a bit. Let me go. Let me escape. Please.

    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.

    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...
