Hug Clinic!

Today I was reminded of a funny idea I had when I was in the military working in the medical field.

The idea was simple. A clinic you could walk into, at any time, when you feel like you need a hug!

As a man, I'm scared to admit that sometimes I just need a huge hug, to feel cared for. Words only go so far for some people.

haha thank you! :)

A hug clinic would be amazing.

If only it was real!

It could be easily, I mean professional cuddlers exist so I don’t see how a hug clinic couldn’t exist too? Super cool idea:)

Honestly you're right. It could possibly be done as a personal practice, call it "Emotional Massage Therapy" or something. Might run into more speed bumps if its open to the public but I believe its possible.

Now I cant stop thinking about all the possibilities!! Thank you :)

Did you have a Medical job in the military? I'm medical too. I was a medic first and then a nurse. Thank you for your service. Are you still in? My son is a Marine. 😊

I worked in the medical field in the air force, got out about 6 months ago :). Are you still working as a nurse? I have a crazy amount of respect for nurses, it takes a strong heart to do that job

Yes. I work fulltime in surgery. Thank you. I love it. It's been 25 years now. What are you doing now?

I have a job that pays well but is nowhere near what I want to do, yet. So right now I'm just working until I find my purpose in life.

You will find it. Keep searching. You have it in you.

Hi there there's nothing. Wrong with needing a hug it can make a difference to someone they say laughter is the best medicine but a hug comes a close second! ((((hugs))))

Are you sending it through the mail? Does it work like this?

- you hug the UPS person

- they drive to me

- I hug UPS person

Meanwhile the UPS person is slightly confused but also feels much better? :P
