I Try To Sleep Away The Emotional Pain

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 285 People

    I can't lie. I have been guilty of this at

    times. I'd rather sleep than "deal". But that caught up with me eventually. Had to wake up, face reality, and get through it. Lol

    Yeah, it is the only thing I have left.

    I don't drink anymore. I maxed out my credit cards. I went on a diet. So there's literally nothing to take the pain away. Sleep is just an escape. I don't know how to deal with things and I don't have any friends to talk to.

    It works. Sleeping is a good cure to ignore the

    emotional pain for a couple of hours. Sleeping gives me bliss. All my worries and unrequited thoughts drown away with a rest.

    My mom says I sleep a lot.

    But she doesn't see that I sleep when I'm crying or hurt.
