Adults With Comfort Objects


Here is my comfort object:



I am 29 and I still sleep at night with my little bun bun. I love her! I am single and I don't have a man to snuggle with, so this is good as well. LOL! However, even if I did have a man, I would still love my bunny doll!

Another comfort object is my robe; it's very soft, comfortable and it feels like a permanent hug.

There was even a study on adults that sleep with teddy bears or own comfort objects:

Does any adults here still sleep with their stuffed animals or even their pet dog/cat? Or do you have a security blanket, robe, object that you can't imagine losing?

I decline to answer this on the grounds that it may incriminate me.

Your little bun bun is adorable!

Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there.

I consider my various hoodies to be security blankets. Every time I wear them I feel safe and less anxious. I specially enjoy my black hoodies, makes me feel hidden(if that makes any kind of sense). Thankfully fall is on it's way, soon I'll be able to wear hoodies again. Summer is a nightmare for me.

That's just like me and my robe. I wore this robe in the summer and this more like a fall/winter robe.

My dad is 58 and he has a security blanket. I am not lying! But he was always a spoiled brat.

Nope, but I love cute things like this. It's mainly used for decoration.

Lol when I read the title I completely misunderstood what you meant.
Anyway I have two teddy bears but I don't sleep with them. I feel like my coat is a comfort object though. Sadly I can't wear it unless it's cold but I wan't to wear it all the time. Makes me feel safe for some reason.

here's mine:



His name is Toby! Not really an adult though lol (I'M A CHILD.)
I hug him while I sleep, and feel weird without him.

I don't have anything of comfort that I sleep with, though I enjoy hiding under the blankets at times. Some comfort objects I do have are my backpack, internet and jacket/sweaters like others mentioned.

I've been thinking about investing in fidget toys...

Yep, I'm the same, I love hoodies. It's a shame it's too damn hot to wear them most of the year here. I'm really looking forward to cooler weather.

A few years ago my kids gave me this teddy bear, in a Craig Biggio Houston Astros uniform. That was cool. It was a teddy bear. In an Astros uniform. That my kids gave me. That is all.
