    Pillow Hugger

    I have always been a person who hugs my pillow.  I have about 4 of them on the bed and loved to snuggle them all around me.  They give me comfort when I am all alone in bed and make me feel secure.

    Comfy

    I have this body pillow that I like to hug while I sleep. It also help me sleep right. Most of the time when I travel I am unable to bring it with me so I miss it but I do adjust.

    Body Pillow

    I find myself wrapped around my body pillow more and more these days.  I think it is longing, but one can't be sure.  I never leave home without my pillow either.  I cannot sleep unless I have my body pillow in the bed with me.

    It Helps

    Not quite the same as having a warm body next to you to hold while you dream, but it helps on nightmare nights.

    And I like to hug them, it gives me a sense of comfort. When I'm sad, or scared, or depressed... I just hug one of them. It's pretty ridiculous, but it's comforting
