To anyone who has called one of them before: What was it like? Did it help you at all? What kind of people answer the phones for them, anyway? Would you recommend it? If I call them, am i likely to be reported to police or hospitals? I have been feeling like i really need to talk to somebody about my problems, it just seems like venting on the internet does not cut it. It's scary for me to just pick up the phone and call some stranger... or telling a stranger about myself at all... but I don't have anyone in my personal life i can really talk to, either.
