Recovery is hard. Sometimes we don't need advice... we just need a hug.

I know that sometimes I've just wanted this so I'm sorry for the overt soppiness, but this is a thread for people to come and say "I just need that hug" and for people to give it in a cyber-style.

Again... apologies for the sentimentality...

I -love- this idea. It's really true, a hug helps. And..I don't think this sounds silly at all actually..it helps to just wrap your arms around and give yourself a squeeze when you know someone's sending one. :3

Now for a little confession; when I get really down and no one's around and I really want a cuddle, I fold up my blanket so it's all long, cuddle my stuffed rabbit (his name is Mister Charlie Rabbit) and wrap the blanket around me, so it feels like a hug. ^.^; It works, y'know.

That's such a good idea :) I hug my teddy too.

:topic: I haven't slept without it since I went to the centre for child abuse investigation (whited out) but I never had him before that... although I had him since I was born.

I could really do with a hug :( I just don't understand why my brain suddenly goes "Yes, you're wrapped up on the sofa with your boyfriend, yes, everything in life is pretty much going a-okay right now, but I'm going to grip you in a serious depression nonetheless while you're supposed to be watching TV."
