    Seems like the only escape I have from the stress and depression is sleep. I get home in the afternoon and take sleeping pills to knock myself out. I want to sleep forever and not wake up.

    I can relate to that. Some days I feel like I'm only living to sleep.

    Sleep is wonderful, I get to escape to a reality created by my mind. However, recently I have been wondering if my dream could become a reality. We all need rest. We just have to be sure that is not All we are doing.

    I want to help, tell me your stresses. Let me see if I can help.

    I'm with you on this one. Oversleeping is my big problem and I don't even drugs to it. I've had occasions where I've slept for nearly 24 hours, just waking up and going back to sleep. And then I just feel worthless for not having done anything.

    I can relate as well.
    I can easily sleep 24/7 and still just want to go back to sleep.

    Sleep is definitely my way of coping, although if I sleep too much I feel like shit. So I take myself out, do a little shopping, go to the bookstore, sit down and read and take a little nap.

    I dont sleep to well - even with some over the counter sleep aids. I can easily be sitting on my couch at 3 am staring at the tv praying to get tired enough to sleep. I get over tired too while waiting on sleep - I twitch and hurt (the last doctor I saw said it was related to nerve pain or something of that nature). I do feel like sleep is an escape and would sleep forever if I could.. I know it sounds silly but what keeps me going are my dogs - silly coming from someone with a husband and child - my dogs are what keep me from (well you know).... Lately my sleep has been over taken by night mares though :( But still better than being awake and dealing with life.

    Sleep is victory.

    It's a constant struggle. It's impossible to start, and even harder to stop. I always have to beat myself to force myself to begin, which limits the amount of time I sleep, making me exhausted.

    Sleep is solace. I wish I could just sleep and not wake up too sometimes, but I try my best to have a normal 'relationship' with sleep since if I oversleep I feel terrible.

    I wake up discouraged and filled with the anxiety, but a part of me feels, "maybe this is life's way of saying I'm alive. This is a phase" or whatever the f*ck.

    All I know is, I'm gonna keep waking up and try my best at changing my life one day at a time. Slowly. I'm doing it, but it's hard. The memories, thoughts, feelings always make it so difficult but I'm doing it.

    I feel the exact same way. I try to sleep as much as possible to get away from it all but eventually I just can't sleep anymore. I've also noticed that my body's natural response to a lot of emotional stress is to sleep it off. I guess it can go both ways. Sleeping has become one of my target behaviors :/ ...

    Sleep is the biggest pleasure for me. When I'm asleep I feel peace. Awake time is painful but when I am asleep I am free of everything and no longer have to fight the pain or wear the mask. I am so lucky that I can sleep most times. I wish I could be asleep all the time.

    Sleep is the closest a lot of people have come to death. It's alluring, in that sense.
