Can I Just Sleep Forever?

I feel so mentally drained/ill. I hate my life so much right now. The only thing I really want is to go to sleep and never wake up. Life is hard, I know this, but I feel so done half the time. My life is so dull; there is no color. I wish I could just skip 10 years ahead, that way I’d know what’s coming for me so my life isn’t so boring. I want everything to just be over. I know I’m here for a reason, but when I get into this state of mind it’s like I don’t care. I wouldn’t care if I died today, tomorrow, or any time close. I want to up my meds so bad.

I read your post and could feel your pain but you has some positives in there when you say you know you are here for a reason and you are , maybe it is that one day you will be able to help others with this dreadful depression when you have come through this which you will , you are so much stronger than you think even though I know that feeling of been so drained

You say you would like to up your meds ? is this something you have asked your Doctor if this would be possible ?

Know you are not alone in how you feel and remember the contact numbers if you feel you are getting desperate that are in the pinned posts to he right side of the page , sometimes phoning the Samaritans if you are in the UK can really help as hearing another human voice when we feel so down can be a comfort :-)

I hope as members log on they will give you some better advise but just wanted to let you know I had read your post :-)

Take Care x
