I'm the opposite; I wake up several times in a night and hardly ever dream, especially in stressful times. Hibernation seems appealing to me.

I do this as well sometimes. I call it recreational sleeping...it is enjoyable sometimes. I also engage in recreational eating when I wake up.

I was just thinking that this morning. I was having such a nice dream--I don't remember exactly what it was, but I was content, and happy, in a house that's not mine, but my cats were there. Then that damn alarm on my phone goes off at 5 a.m. and the good mood is ruined and the anxiety and anger takes over.

Sleep is nice. The problems, the pressure, the shame, and the loneliness aren't there in my dreams. Sleep is a happy place, and wakefulness is full of pain.

I LOVE sleeping, especially dreaming. I don't understand people who say sleep is a waste of time. It's so valuable to our physical and mental health, and sooooo enjoyable (to me, it's better than sex, better than eating, better than almost anything considered fun, except maybe reading).

If I were in the movie The Matrix, I'd be glad to be in a pod, with all my physical needs being met, just sleeping and dreaming away!

I used to be that way, when I was really depressed. I can actually "Will" myself to sleep. I slept like, 20 hours a day. That was some serious depression. It ended, when my unemployment ran out, and I needed to get a job, or be homeless.

I can totally relate. This song has a very personal meaning to me:

The Beatles -I'm Only Sleeping - (REVOLVER) Remastered - YouTube

I love to sleep, lucky for me I can fall asleep anywhere, anytime, I usually have continuation dreams, where the same story picks up where it left off.

Sometimes I think about it something were to happen and I was in a coma, I hope they would let me live, so I could dream and dream.

At the same time, I like the feeling I get when I am deprived of sleep as well. I will prop myself up so I cant fall all the way asleep and stay suspended in the place between awake and sleeping.

They say the mind remembers a lot when in that state, I should play some positive affirmations or educational stuff next time and see..

I'd love to just not wake up tomorrow in this ugly, disfigured body.
