Hugging Plushies makes me feel calm. They work better than real people but i'm scared to carry one around because i'm an adult. I feel like people would make fun of me for carrying a baby bop plush ๐Ÿ˜… or just treat me differently if you know what i mean. I've gotten laughed at before and it just added to my anxiety. Guess i can't win either way lol

Hi, maybe it could be a talking point!? Could you hug one before leaving the house or get a smaller one so people wouldn't notice so much!

Maybe you can have a small plush doll and keep it your purse? Then you could touch it in your purse and still get the benefit.
