I Sometimes Want to Sleep Forever

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,422 People

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

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

    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.
