    I Don't Like Sleeping Without Her

    My teddy bear watches over me when I am asleep and brings me comfort when I feel scared or alone. I bought her in Rome for 1 euro and I named her Lucia. It was the only italian name I could think of. She really does mean a lot to me and if I were ever to lose her I'd be so upset...

    Because I Can

    If I wake up, needing comfort,all I do is stretch out my one arm and - he's there. I curl him under my holding-the-pillow arm and go back to sleep. Maybe I'm several decades past six. I don't care what the reason is. I know he's there. I feel less alone in the pre-dawn hours...

    I still sleep with my teddy bear I got from a

    nurse whenever I first overdosed. I was 13 or 14. I've had her for 3 years. I named her Ashley after the nurse. I also have a 6 foot teddy names Theodore that I sleep with.

    Teddy 2004

    Well not exactly sleep with him, but Teddy2004 sits on my bedside table and comes away with me every time I'm away from home. He's a sort of mascot and is a well travelled bear having travelled around the UK, Eire, Paris, Chicago (both the city and the musical) and New York.
