I just found this and am so happy to see that there are others like me. No one I know understands what it's like to fear something as normal as sleep. This is a recent development for me and I believe it's because I recently moved away from my family. I fear that I will die in my sleep and not get to say goodbye or worse miss one of my loved ones calling with bad news. It all has made my hyper aware of death and falling asleep feels like what I imagine dying to feel like. Very terrifying. I just wish I knew how to stop it.
