The longer it is between snuggle sessions, the more desperately I need them. The more desperately I need them, the longer I need them to last.
When a potential snuggle session that could defuse me gets me to the point of relaxing enough to start letting me de-stress, but doesn't let me de-stress all the way? That leaves me fragile and easily set off.
But some is better than none.
I wish, though, that I got snuggle-time more often.
