I Hug My Pillow While Sleeping

    I actually hug a stuff toy.

    My hello kitty stuff toy that a person close to my heart gave me 2 years ago. Every time I go to sleep, it's always beside me and I hug it. I'm actually obsessed with pillows. Well not really obsessed but I can't sleep with just one pillow. I have 7 pillows actually. I don't how...

    But I wish it was you.

    And maybe it will be. Maybe it wont. That's cool too. I'm bored. And so are you. So let's get together and make things better. And all that stuff. Bladdy bladdy blah. I am out of my mind. Someone please shut me off. I'm spinning in a strange direction. Where am I? Oh.. Hello

    I don't understand how its possible to sleep

    without hugging your pillow. I've tried to plenty of times, but I just end up tossing and turning. I just feel much more safer and comfortable while hugging a pillow at night. Is it only me or?

    I don't own a what you call a traditional

    pillow. Those go flat, I sleep with my 4yr olds stuffed animals. I use them like pillows but when I wake up, I find myself hugging the "pillow." Can't sleep without one idk why. Comfort maybe? All I know is it makes me happy to hug something even when it's unconsciously done.

    If my pillow was human I'd make love to it.

    Haha! Seriously. King sized bed. Tons of comforters. Nothing like waking up at 4am and then realizing I have the day off and a feeling of happiness and joy hits me and then bring my pillow in for some lovin'! :) Happy Holidays All.

    I feel like this helps me have a sense of

    closeness, holding things tight (such as my pillow) makes me feel like it will be there forever my pillows there for everything tears, heart breaks, funny times and many more I love hugging my pillow!!

    Last night, after making my daughter dinner,

    I grabbed a pillow and plopped myself on my bed thinking I might take a ten-minute nap. It was 8 a.m. Next thing I knew, it was 5 in the morning. So, I am trying to stay awake a bit longer tonight before going to bed. So, entertain me if you're out there. :)

    20/03/2016 - I do this sometimes.

    Not every night but every now and then I do. Probably makes me a weirdo but that's okay cause I already know I'm weird anyway.

    I always feel so lonely

    and crave affection but I have nobody. whenever I get sad, lonely or tired, I just hug my pillow. I sleep with 3 pillows, 2 for my head and one to cuddle. it's so comfy, it's like hugging a person. hopefully one day I'll find someone to replace my pillow.

    I think it's a natural thing

    for most people to crave to be with someone while they are at their weakest state, sleep. So when no one is there, we curl up to whatever feels like another human body. That's why we hug our pillows I think.

    One night when I was younger I couldn't get to

    sleep. Everybody was just so mean and I didn't get it. That night was the first time I hugged my pillow. Ever since I usually fall asleep hugging my pillow. It also helps, with the crying.

    Microwaveable pillows are the best!
