you can add me to the "book" category too.... husband had a counseling session, and the last one his therapist wanted me to come, so I brought a book about my favorite subject.... "just in case we had to wait" (yeah, right! I just needed a book to be able to get me through the therapist's visit, and it wasn't even MY visit!)

I have several little plushies and little "guys" that travel with me in my bag.

The Calico Critters kitten I got from my therapist - her name is Ms. Important and she's supposed to serve as a reminder for me to assert what I want and need, or something like that.

well it's not really an object... But my dog. I take him with me everywhere. In bus, store, when we're going to visit someone.. But if there's some place i can't take him with me, i have this plushie looking just like him, as soft and all. I take it with me and it calms me. Also i have my stuffed husky puppy toy named Kira, also i take it with me everywhere. And also i have my i huge fluffy blanket that comforts me at home and sleepovers. And my pillow turtle. And also one necklace my mommy gave me. I always wear it.

My cell phone as an mp3 player to tune out people and a few items (rabbit foot and one of my many rounds - usually .50, .30 or 20mm) to run my fingers across when I need to.

I have Pillow Pet that I sleep with every night. It's the bumble bee one. Oh, and my iPod.

My backpack comes with me everywhere, even to the shop up the road. I never thought it was odd until Mum pointed out that half of the time my bag is empty.

I take books with me sometimes, but not if I'm going somewhere where I can't leave my bag at the main desk because the books set off alarms and such.

The only other thing I can think of is I put ripped up balls of paper in my pockets to play with when I have to go out.

At home I have quite a lot, including my childhood soft toy collection. I also have a soft toy that I've had since birth.

I've slept with a flat dinosaur pillow that I've had since I was 10. It's not comfortable to sleep on at all, so after I've finished watching a movie I'll just hug it while I sleep.

It seems my bicycles are my biggest calming item..
I talk to them, Riding them is paradise. I use to be able to park one in my office. When I'm grocery shopping, all I think about is my bike is right out front.. I'm always customizing them.
My next calming it reading science articles or fantasy books.. I keep both on my PDA.
In a pinch I'll use my key chain.

Interesting to see there's a lot of people who needs to have a whole BAG of stuff with them!

My coworkers have mocked me for YEARS about what they call "Tina's apartment", which is a bag I take with me to work, which contains.. well.. Everything!
Books, first and foremost, not as many now as when I didn't have a kindle, snacks and other foodstuffs that doesn't need refrigeration, vitamin and mineral supplements (a ton, don't know why), gum, pastilles, anti-anxiety meds, ibuprofen, a small screwdriver set, makeup, emergency toiletries, magazines, a small webcam, en external cd drive for laptops, some times my laptop...

All this I bring to work EVERY DAY, whether it's a 7 hour shift or 12 hour shift....

The strange thing is that I detest handbags and while going out and not going to work I bring as little as possible, only wallet and cell phone if I can help it.
Since I got my kindle it has become a staple too, now I almost panic at the idea of being stuck waiting somewhere and NOT having it with me..!

I also always carry something in my pocket, I have a heart shaped piece of rose quartz that lives in my uniform pants for work and I usually keep an assortment of random small stuff in other pants and I've recentlly noticed that I stim with them in my pocket whenever I'm talking at length with someone. I've always done this, but not really been aware of it until now.
I guess it's better than other more obvious stims, heheh..

My iPod and pocket watch comfort me out in public. At home it is my gear wheels, and a weird object of unknown origin. Strange.

I have a whole collection of peculiar trinkets I have found over the last 20 years. I hardly ever use them, but just knowing they are there gives me some sense of warmth and comfort.

My blanket and my little stuffed animal "cechup". (Pronounced ketchup)
And stacking coins also helps me calm down

My iPod and in-ear monitors. Rarely do I leave the apartment without them.

Bringing this thread back. :). I have a blanket that I have to have when I go to bed. I rub the edges of it every night.

Odd, I know, but hey ... they work for me. Snap it on finger, click it, chew it, all sorts of stuff. Not discrete enough to use in public though. The wooden ones are no good, too small.

I carry my Ipod shuffle and my android phone at all times for music and entertainment but mainly music to calm me down and shut off the sounds in the outside world.
