Surreal bus journey

On the way home from my lecture I had a panic attack, because I thought I had a needle in my arm.

Except I've never actually had a needle in that part of my arm before, could see my arm (and no needle) and am not actually scared of needles.

Anyway, I'm fully recovered due to the miracle of bacon, lettuce and cheese [I had a disagreement with the tomato people after they refused to buy my slaves – fortunately the cheese growers have no such foibles when it comes to picking their fruit] sandwiches

The snuggletatsic theory of depression

I haven't really finalised the details and implications, but in one of the 3 hours of insomnia last night I conglomerated the following facts/trends:

  1. I am often depressed
  2. I often feel tired
  3. I often want a hug
  4. When I'm depressed I feel even tireder
  5. When I'm tired I feel more in need of a hug
  6. When I'm depressed a hug can reduce depression
  7. I have noticed similar trends to 4, 5 and 6 in other people

Now, the link between tiredness and depression is quite well observed, but has there been a proper in-depth study of the effect of snuggling? If it reduces depression and reduced depression reduces tiredness, then theoretically hugging should reduce tiredness. On the other hand, the links are not quite so clearly defined and may have other explainations.
