sleep - October 11th 2009, 05:15 AM

last night I was afraid to drift off to sleep cause I thought I was actually dying and if I did drift off I'd never wake up again. Does anyone else ever have this problem?

people like you and me, it's our job to care it's all we know it's what we were created to do. Even if the people we care about weren't real or didn't know us, we just keep on caring anyway. That way we make sure a little piece of that person lingers on watching over us, like the heroes in our dreams like the stars in the sky.

Hey there,

It can be quite common not to want to go to sleep for several reasons. As you said a fear of death can be one of those. It doesn't mean that this is 'normal' though, but then what does normal actually mean? I don't like that word :P

Seriously though, if this is getting in the way of your life (maybe you are more tired the next day, you are more stressed / worried etc.) I would recommend that you visit a doctor. If something is on your mind, talking about it can really help sometimes.

It might also be the case that if you are feeling down, or are scared before you go to bed you could use TeenHelp's Live Help system if it is on line. Again, just talking to somebody when you feel more vulnerable can work wonders!

Have a great day :]
