    Dont get me wrong, ive been hugged in the

    recent past. its just they seem so empty lately. Its like a half-assed handshake, you can tell when there just doing it as an obligatory greeting gesture. I need a real hug, the kind that makes a person feel warm-n-fuzzy and.. y'know, loved. I kinda miss that feeling.

    Call For A Group Hug

    I really need a group hug right now.  A few people have reached out to me today and I haven't really felt able to respond. I just wanted to say thanks.  I'm not in best form at the moment but a hug will suffice for now.

    So I don't know what is wrong with me

    but something definitely is. I think I have lost my mind. I can not think like I used to. Nothing seems normal or even real.

    Please

    I'm struggling right now. I'm lonely and depressed, despite the medication I'm on. I just want to wrap my arms around someone and hold them. I want to make them feel safe and loved and supported. I don't know how close I am to the edge of what I can take. Please?

    in my life it is hard to look at all the good things that I have, my beautiful children, food, a roof, and the material things I use through the day. The loss of a 13 year relationship, as well as so many other things in my life has me feeling like I will never feel the touch...

    I'm losing all of my friends

    and I honestly feel so alone, I mean sure I have 1 friend on here and a few on Instagram, but it wouldn't kill to have a friend who I wouldn't have to contact through a screen all the time, would it?

    I love wearing my "Free hugs" shirt.

    It helps to make friends and feels so good to get a free hug . No strings attached. But sadly I have lost my shirt and now conventions, scifi and anime, are banning them due to creeps.

    Omfg. I said to my friend

    that I need help. That I really want to relapse. Then I said "Never mind it doesn't matter." And she was like "okay :)" she then went on to say Bob The Builder. It's like she doesn't even care.
