Does anyone else just want to sleep and not wake up?

I don’t want to kill myself, but every time I sleep I feel safe, secure, closed off. It’s then that I think: if I died, that would be ok? That’s a nice way to go. Sigh.

I used to not think about not waking up (sorry for the double negative), but since I've been reading about this topic on this forum, I scare myself silly about not waking up.

I just think it would be a relief at times, and you wouldn’t even know it had happened.

I do want to kill myself and I don't feel secure sleeping. I mean I like sleeping and good lord am I grateful for ambien. But I hate dreaming. Either it's a task when I should be relaxing or worse...one of my physical issues is less than completely soul crushing. I say hey that's not so bad...then I think oh crud I'm probably dreaming. But no this feels real...do I dare hope? Then I wake up. But yeah that would be a convenient time to die. No fussing over preparation and stuff.

I do want to kill myself
It may help to have a look at these two pages on the forum: Suicidal Crisis and Mental Health Forum - Getting Help about what to do if you're feeling suicidal, or if you need emergency help. I hope you can use the forum for support during this difficult time.

If you’re thinking about suicide and are in immediate danger, please call your local emergency number (i.e. in the UK call 999, in the USA or Canada call 911, in Australia call 000 and in New Zealand call 111) or call the international emergency number of 112.

If you have been affected by the contents of this thread and would like to speak to someone about your feelings you can call one of the following helplines:

In the UK and Ireland, the Samaritans can be contacted on 116 123.
In the US, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255.
In Canada, the Suicide Prevention Service on 1.833.456.4566.
In Australia, the crisis support service Lifeline is on 13 11 14.
In New Zealand, the Need to Talk service is on 1737 or 080017371737.
Other international helplines can be found at www.befrienders.org.

that's how i want to die too. I've always been afraid of being tortured to death or eaten to death. those two ways of dying scare the crud out of me. i think everyone wants to die in their sleep for the same reason: it's peaceful
i seriously think robin williams wanted to control his death

Yeah. Right now I'm really low so I keep wishing for the worst. Not waking up would be a delightful way to go. Maybe with a really good dream just before.
