The surprising comfort

It helps my anxiety to carry two of my three beanie baby Teddys around with me in my bag. I would carry all 3 but that would take up all the space in my bag. My favourite one is my lamb one I don’t have a name for her yet. It is comforting because they are always with me in my room and so understand me well and still are my friends.

@lekkerhondje :blush:

You kind of inspired me.

I’ll post some photos when I get a chance I do recommend it for anxiety


Glad you found something that provides some comfort. :panda_face::panda_face::panda_face:

Thanks Graybear. Yes I dunno why it helps they aren’t exactly alive but somehow it helps.


I sometimes do the same thing! I have a little black cat beanie, from Kiki’s Delivery Service, an anime movie. The cat’s name is Jiji. I put him in my bag, sometimes.


Aw cool. Snap. Beanie stuffed animals are so cute. I’m glad you get some comfort from it too. U know, just a little, in my case… Better than none. :smiley:

Here she is

Anyone have any name ideas?


The tablecloth or pillow… or whatever that is that the lamb is sitting on… gave me the idea of “Sprinkle”. :smiley:

Or “Star”, because you count sheep to fall asleep, and sleep usually means nighttime, and nighttime means stars! Haha.

Yes I like it. It suits her well. :ok_hand:

I’m gonna take them out my plastic bag in the staff room and let them breathe and sit on the sofa there :sweat_smile:

I also have a rabbit called bunny and an elephant called Ellie


I highly recommend beanie babies they are too cute and cuddly.

And my colleagues are gonna think I’m strange when I lay them out at work. Lol…

Maybe I could do with a teddy too.

When I was a kid I used to make a person by stuffing clothes with other clothes and I would lie beside them. This was long before puberty so I don’t think there was anything sexual about it. But maybe I was longing for company and being close.


Aw that’s creative and clever.

The brand I buy is called Jellycat. If you are interested in the ones like mine. Slighlty pricy but worth it wen it comes to company.

This is Bunny. She is out with me today too. Ellie is chilling in my room though. So have no photo of her at the moment


So I decided not to lay my teddies out in the staffroom it might be a bit too much :joy:

But they are in a clear bag on the bench with the top open so they can breathe.
