...those are the symptoms of Hug Deprivation


  1. Hehe :)

    Thank you for drawing attention to this common, though not widely recognised, syndrome. People should be made more aware so that less cases go untreated!

  2. exactly! I read somewhere that humans need at least 4 hugs a day to live well (but I can't find it anymore)

  3. I am seriously deprived at the moment, get about 1 or 2 a week at the moment if I am lucky!

  4. well then you are lucky! it's been ages since I hugged somebody... (it was at Christmas, to be honest)

  5. Wow that is a long time, but yeah actually while at uni I can go a fairly long time hugless! And people wonder what is wrong with the world!

    But then some people have gone all their adult life without a hug!

  6. yeah, you don't even see the weeks go by without hugging somebody. all you feel is this pressure, tightness and discomfort - that you eventually get used to :(
