    Sometimes this happens to me. I try to think about all the bad things going on in my life right now and why I would rather be dead.

    If I'm gonna die in my sleep I'm gonna die in my sleep...... worrying all evening about it will not change the outcome. No point wasting time worrying about something I can't change. That's how I try and think about it anyway.

    If you go to sleep and then not wake up again, its not really gonna bother you is it. Being dead is exactly the same as the way you were before you were born. I dont remember that being too bad. Certainly nothing that bothers me anyway.

    Every night you have slept in your entire life there is always the possibility of not waking up, and it's the same with everyone. However you probably have a better chance at winning the lottery

    I don't fear death at all. I will know **** all in regards to what's happening if I'm dead, so there's nothing to fear.

    try to occupy yourself before you go to bed. like read a book until you can barely keep your eyes open, it may help you take your mind off it and you should fall asleep easier.

    One has to live with uncertainty. Plus, sleep provides an escape from life. It's really the only thing, other than death, where you can just be unconscious and forget everything (or have a nice dream ).

    You can die in your sleep, you can die washing sheets, you can die eating treats. You can die at any time tbh, but letting that kind of fear control you is not what life is about.

    If you live 70 years, that's only 25,550 days, or 'sleeps'.

    You're far more likely to die within 10 minutes of going to sleep tonight, than you are to win the lottery in your lifetime.
