    Can you share your personal experience with calling a suicide hotline? What did you expect when you called? Did it help? Were they nice? Judging? Are you glad that you called? Did anything come out of it?

    I really needed someone to talk to the other day, so I called. It was awkward, to say the least. I didn't know how to say what I was feeling or why I was feeling that way, so I ended up hanging up. The person called me back, but I didn't answer. They left a message asking why we lost connection. Tho I wasn't able to speak my feeling thru the phone he was very nice.

    I really appreciate your input, thank you for sharing. It's a very daunting thing for me. I want to call for help, but am afraid the cops will just show up to commit me. I just want someone to talk to.

    i've had good experiences, mostly. their's only been the odd time where i've got someone who is completely rude- and after a while cuts me off.. because "we need to speak to someone else" which i suppose makes sense in a way, but still..
