    I used to have a rolled up fluffy blanket I

    used to cuddle at night, but that has recently been replaced with a 5ft bolster pillow. I sleep so much better with my arms wrapped round it and the lower part of it trapped between my legs. Heaven!

    It's All I Got

    I don't have anyone to hug and haven't for a while now. I just kind of got used to hugging my pillow as I fell asleep. It sucks, I ain't gonna lie to you, I hate it.

    Afternoon naps are my favorite.

    Breeze coming through the window. Silk sheets. My piece of heaven.

    That is literally the only way I can sleep.

    It's just so...comforting and comfortable (I know it sounds weird lol but it's the truth :D )

    Seems like a girly thing to do,

    but I'm a man and I hug my damn pillow, and I'm ******* proud of it! I feel like I always gotta hold onto something in my sleep, probably has something to do with anxiety or something.

    Haha, I don't know why I do it.

    I guess it's just very comfortable ^^ it helps me get through a rough night. I know sad right? It's whatever!! I'm just weird like that!' I think it's really comforting..

    My Pillow

    It's always been there for me when I felt lonely and worthless. I may have shed tears on it but when that would be over i would always wake up happy to be holding it in my arms. :)

    I love to sleep but never will,

    Troubles come when I lie still, My mind awakes ready to kill. Alone with my thoughts i lay awake, "You fail and fail when much is at stake," "Run away, for everyone's sake." I remember all my faults all my flaws Never faltering they hold like iron jaws, To my memories which...

    Don't you find that by hugging your pillow you

    suddenly feel even more snuggled in your bed than if you just lie there? I do. And i can't get to sleep without hugging my pillow. I think it is because when I was a child I'd sleep with a blanket that I'd hug. After all if I don't hug my pillow I hug my duvet...

    I don't know why? But

    why not it just gets so warm and feels like someone's there to care for me Sometimes I just go to bed lay there awake hugging my pillow, crying, telling it all my troubles The pillow can't let me down or leave me and I will never leave it

    It's Better Than Nothing

    I've always had trouble sleeping. It wasn't so bad when I was married, but after I was divorced I could never sleep more than 2 - 3 hours a night. I finally realized that it was because I was sleeping alone. I started buying pillows to tuck around me. I am now the Pillow...

    Because...

    It's like I need to have someone there with me in the darkness protecting me from the creatures of the night. Wanting to be in someone's caring and loving embrace. But alas I do not have what I wish I did, and thus have to make the best out of what I do.

    Habit

    I do have a habit of hugging my pillow as I sleep. I find it helps me sleep better, probably because sometimes I imagine that my pillow is a nice hot guy sleeping in my bed with me lol.

    I never really understood

    why I do this. Its always for different reasons but no matter what I can never fall asleep without hugging it. Sometimes its because I picture im hugging my "boyfriend" and sometimes its just to mufle my crying...or both. Its kind of depressing to think about :(

    To be honest, I hug and cuddle with my pillow.

    My bed is the most comfortable place ever. Especially after a hard day of working on a project or after something bad happened, like a horrible discussion I had with my family yesterday, I always love coming back to my bed and just roll peacefully and hug my pillows<3

    YASSS! I sleep on two!

    NO! Let's say 4! I sleep in the middle so my head is resting on all 4 pillows :) - I can't sleep on flat pillows! :( they have to be comfy and soft! And I have two more on the side so if I roll over when I'm sleeping I can hug them. :D I'd say the pillow is my boyfriend. :D...

    When i was young i didn't hug my pillow.

    I didn't have a soft cuddly teddy bear or any other stuffed animal with me. But ever since i got lonely again few years ago, i started hugging my pillows when i sleep. And i won't let go till i wake up. I even named my pillows. Am i going crazy?
