I Want to Die In My Sleep

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,752 People

    Staring out my window.

    Wishing I could jump out of it. Either that or fall asleep and just never wake up. I don't want to exist anymore. I don't want to feel the pain I feel 24/7. I hate that everyday I have to wake up, get up and act like I'm happy.

    That seems to be the most peaceful way to go

    anyway. Just go to sleep and wake up in heaven!

    I want to die. I want it

    so bad. I hate myself. I hate myself so so much. I hate my voice, my face, my smile , my personality. I am a bad person. I always cause drama. Everyboy hates me. Even my boyfriend can't stand me. I want to die. I want to go asleep and never wake up. Nobody would miss me...

    I am sure that this is the graciousest,

    most peaceful way to leave this world. Very often I go to bed with the wish to fall asleep forever and not to wake up again but until now I didnĀ“t get the favor to leave this world while sleeping.

    I have trouble sleeping.

    Mostly because I think too much. When I do get tired and sleep, I wish to sleep more than the normal hours. When my eyes open, signaling that I'm alive, I close them back, and wish they stay closed, and I go back to sleeping in the abyss. Don't bid me a "good night or sleep...

    I could never commit suicide

    I know that eventually,

    my time in this world will be up. When that does occur, and I do eventually die, it would be much more peaceful and painless to do so in my sleep.

    I can't complain, ironically.

    I have two amazing young sons. I am a retired police officer at 42, due to a back injury. I can still function despite the pain. I want to die because of my wife. She is a selfish control-freak. I never noticed before because I was working 60 to 80 hour work weeks. My...

    Every night I go to sleep hoping it will be my

    last. Every morning I wake up and wish I didn't wake; just like every night I remember since I was 15. This is the fact. I don't need advice.

    Death in sleep is most beautiful

    and less painful death. Once, I tried to kill myself by overdosing my insulin at night.

    I am done with my life.

    Last night I wanted to cry my eyes out but I couldn't. I did something terrible I won't ever forgive myself. I could lose everything I care about. My mind is breaking apart and is decaying. I want to die. I can't live with myself anymore.

    Painless and beautiful death.

    I can't endure anymore pain. I don't want people to care because nobody does. I just want death to embrace me in it's arms. I wish to die in my sleep, without anymore pain.
