    I find myself in love with sleep. Am I the only one that views it as the ultimate escape, a period of peace and tranquility. Granted I often have bad dreams but still, for the most part, it goes smoothly.

    I find sleep one of the things I look forward to the most, especially during periods of high stress. Its something of a compromise, in that it is the closest one has to the escape and peace granted by death but without the permanence (are death and sleep really so different?)

    Does anyone else know what I mean or can relate?

    Oh God yes :laugh:

    It's great until you start having bad dreams :dry:

    Anyway, yeah I totally know what you mean, sleep is like a haven where you can escape from the problems of the day

    Sleep so you don't have to feel.

    Indeed, you all captured it perfectly. I was in a combination of fatique and depression at the time of writing this, hence its somberness.

    I too love sleep. I love the dreams, good and bad. I suffer from sleep apnea...so at least I know have a machine that provides me the air I need to keep me from snoring.

    Sleep is wonderful. Though whenever I go through heavy depressive episodes I develop insomnia :sad:. It's fucked up.

    I wish I could sleep!! I only average 2/3 hours a night and BAM wide awake.. If I am Lucky I'll get an hour nap during the day..It's not as bad as it use to be..I would go on binges where I was up for three days and then crash for five hours and right back up again..When I would reach that third day it was like euphoria(spelling). I would feel out of body!!!

    Unless you are sleeping so much you can't accomplish anything, then you might as well enjoy sleeping and dreaming for all the restorative power that it has to offer.
