At the end of my tether, I made the mistake of contacting a crisis line. I have been told to do this if I should feel this way. But it has been dangerously counterproductive before and it was counterproductive again. I don't want somebody validating my feelings. And when I am at the end of my tether, I don't want suggestions which are appropriate for someone at the start of his tether: of course I have tried doctors / therapists / medication etc. It isn't helping; if it were, I wouldn't be at the end of my tether. So - what do I do when the crisis line is making matters worse?
