    Josey

    My boyfriend got me this cheap black teddy bear at walmart around two years ago and I still have it. I named her josey. There's a hole in her leg and her fur isn't as soft as it once was, but I love her just the same. I take her everywhere I go because she reminds of my...

    Actually

    I sleep with a huge stuffed animal that Silver01ta bought me.  He calls it BEVO but I just call it my baby cow.  I take this thing everywhere I go.  It is one of my most special possessions and would be one of the things I grab if my house ever caught on fire or...

    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...

    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.
