Kev,

My sis gave me a an oversized teddy bear (not real huge though). I fall asleep each night holding it in my arms. I also take with me when I go on trips.

You are not alone.

I have a bunch of teddy bears and sometimes when all the shit in my head gets to be too much, I'll curl up with my favorite one and just cry.

If the little boy inside this big ole shy bear likes to have his teddy sometimes, that's ok.

And I'm 49 years old. \:\)

Kev and the "Stuffed Animal Lovers" - I learned from another therapist a long time ago the value of stuffed animals. I have two. #1 is a cuddly, soft rabit who rides in the car with me everywhere I go. #2 is a giant, very soft stuffed Teddy Bear (sitting: two and a half feet high). #2 resides in my ofice and I share him with my kids and teens...and yeah! even my teen guys!!
Glad for those who know the value of these cuddly little treasures!!

Hi Kev,

Yeah, stuffed animals can have a important place in our lives well into adulthood and that should be perfectly fine and should not be laughed at by anyone... (my 88 y/o grandmother still has a couple of stuffed animals on her bed and I deffinately consider her a 'grown up') - I still got a stuffed bear that I've had since I was 4 (Ted)(yeah, I kno - mighty original - but hey!, I was 4 when I named him) - that bear is absolutely priceless to me!!! - that bear was there all of the years that I was going through the abuse - that bear knows every last one of my deepest secrets - that bear has been there through every one of my tears - I no longer sleep with that bear (he's got a bit ragged over the years and I could'nt bear the thought of him fallin appart on me) but he sits on a shelf near the bed where he can still watch over me while I sleep and he still helps me to feel safe - he has a brother bear (love that movie!) that I now sleep with sometimes when I'm hurtin inside (Harry - named after Harry Potter)

Never let anyone make you feel like less of a man cause you still got stuffed animals - it just means that you got feelins (a good heart) and that they are unfeeling/uncareing (no heart) - as I see it the uncareing ones are the ones with the problem! - this world would be a much better place to live in if more people cared more for those around them...

Hey Kev,

I have an orange orangitane that I have had since I was a kid along with a small troll that what do you know I call troll lol, and a small garilla I keep on my bed at all times. I love stuffed animals and I think that they can be a great help in recovery. I believe that they help tramendously in getting in touch with your inner child and comforting that part of yourself. Thats great that you like stuufed animals.
