I Don't Want to Wake Up

No matter how much I sleep or ignore my problems and try to do something that makes me light-hearted or feel good..

I just don't want to wake up.

Sometimes I think I'm on the right track, suddenly, I just detour into the
WHY? abyss.

I could pretend it is great, but that sure takes energy.
And I could be grateful- it could be a lot worse, but that doesn't make me feel better.

Sleep sleep sleep
I don't feel enough stimulation to get out of bed. Where is the excitement, adventure? The meaning?

Anyway, there's some frustration for you.

I don't know if you do this, it is kind of sad, but I wake up in the mornings sometimes, like this morning for example, feeling very sad that I have to live another day. It's like ugh, that feeling that I don't want to be here is here and I don't want to have to get up and bear another day lol. It's bad but, it isn't like that everyday.

Sounds like you might be talking about sleep like as a metaphor.

I know that feeling as well, we have to get up unfortunately. Every morning I'm like another day in this world, yahhh . The only reason I wake up is because I have my music player next to my bed, that's like medicine or sometimes I listen to my favorite internet radio. Just find that thing that give your strength it could be a book, notebook, hot cup tea/chocolate, looking outside n listening to birds, music, drawing, etc.

I hate to wake up.

When I am asleep then I am dreaming and I feel good and love the dream world.

The panic rushes back in as soon as I wake up.

Cause Of Depression

1. Depression is caused by the lack of mind energy.
2. The lack of mind energy is due to excessive thinking, worrying, and anxiety
3. The first and second comes in pair and fuel each other until one fed up of
everything and see life in grey shades.
4. Study says, exercise 3 hours a day making people use more of the body
then the mind, allowing the mind energy to regenerate. But asking a
depressive people to exercise is indeed difficult.
5. Do not indulge in excessive sexual activities. eg. excessive
Masturbation/Sex when in depression, it does give temporary relief but
sooner fall back into deeper dullness / depression.
6. Acceptance of mental fatigue, accepting dullness in perception, never fight
with "I don't want, I hate, I resent depression, why happen to me" type of
thoughts. As this will drain the mind energy even more, keeping the
depressing patient trapped.
7. Sit down, do nothing, think nothing, just "enjoy" the depression, observe it
let it be, do not react, do not fight. Observe the dullness, observe the
sadness. Observe the negativities in the mind. When we observe, we will
see all those thoughts have no power upon us, it will just passes by.
you will even observe thoughts like "this do not work, it is ****, this guy is
talking bull****" all of these are negativities.
8. Once the mind is aware and still, the mind energies will regenerate.
9. Continue to observe the negativities in the mind, so depression will not
return, relapse when we are under stress or other triggers.
10. I have win the war by mindfulness. And the "enermy" of negativity will not
able to harm us if we don't give it a ****.
11. Sleep early, wake up early.
12. The more self-centered person we are, the easier we get depressed.
Gratitude is key, always appreciate what other done for us, and try our
best to repay to them.

Hi Banana Cream,

I thought your post was very well-worded: a neat expression of a very real and very difficult challenge.

Have you ever considered negative motivation? The ancient stoics used to find motivation not in "thinking positive" but in laying out worst case scenarios. More like "this is all the bad **** that will happen if I don't get out of bed." For some people, this can light the fire.

I always found that what I needed to get up was something I genuinely wanted to do. There's a big difference between something that you 'should be doing' based on the counsel of others, and something you genuinely get excited for, based on the counsel of your heart. Even if it's going to five guys, if it gets you up, take it. The post-wake up phase of the day is easier to grapple with if you're up and about.

Until we meet,
Penn Savage
