A friend was trying to convince me to stay awake into 72 hours. Said "Yeah sleep is important, but you never know if you'll ever wake up. Kind of scary right?" He was joking naturally. But in sleepless stupor I replied "pfft I'm more afraid to wake up than not." Anyone else feel this way? Like everything everywhere is a risk? Like you can die walking down the street via errant turn by a car driver, or a snapped power line dropping over your head? Anyone else ever feel like falling asleep and not waking up, might not be all that bad? No suicide. No pain. You just don't wake up. Nobody feels the guilt of having not been able to prevent a suicide, they just feel a part of the tragedy in a life cut short. But you're gone. Some internal organ has dropped the ball, and you're gone. I'm not entirely depressed or suicidal. I have my ups and downs. But this kind of thing is in my mind. If I had the option, would I take it.
