As opposed to a suicide hotline? what was it like?
I have the number for my local community services board. It’s a 24/7 crisis line for mental health patients in need. I spent two weeks inpatient through the same agency back in October 2014, so I’m comfortable with the place.
I’m worried about calling though because I don’t want police showing up at my door to take me to the hospital. I don’t need to go to the hospital, nor can I afford to go. Is it safe to call a crisis line, or do they send police to you? I’m very paranoid and don’'t want to have to expain myself to the cops.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
I called one twice in one day. I made the first person laugh a bit so she assumed I was okay. The second time I called a police came by for a check up and I got hospitalized. They try to help.
I messaged a veteran crisis line, we talked through a chat room, you can also text them too. This was back in June.
When I called, they sent police to my house. Never again!
I don’t know any crisis lines that are not suicide hotlines. In my area, they are all suicide hotlines. When I was younger, I used to call them a lot. For suicidal thoughts and plans, for paranoia, for delusions, for hallucinations, for mania, for relationship problems. I was calling them all of the time. Now, never.
When I first got fired from my job and I was hallucinating, depressed and delusional I called a crisis line. I didn’t feel comfortable talking so they had a chat rooms set up for that reason. And I told them how i was doing they encouraged me to get help. I wasn’t suicidal at that point so cops weren’t called.
Thanks for the feedback everyone. Sounds like there’s a good chance they’ll call police, which is NOT what I want. I didn’t call yesterday and I’m not as bad today, so I guess I’ll have to wonder until next time.
yes, said my mother is trying to eliminate all my living.
Ha! it’s funny now I think about it.
I called a suicide line when I was a teen. No cops showed up but that was in the 90s.
I’ve called before, bawling. I’ve called a few times in the past. I’ve never had the cops arrive at my house afterward. I texted the crisis line this morning. They didn’t call the cops, either. I said I didn’t plan to kill myself yet, just that I know how I would do it, and that I just want the emotional pain to end. They gave me some coping resources.
Good luck, @Shmookitty.
keep keeping on, honey. Til the end. Til it’s actual, and then it’s heaven.
Thanks @Daze and @GrayBear. I’m doing ok, I guess…
@Blossom. You’re not suicidal? are you?
Also are you still learning Japanese? I’m learning German on duolingo. It’s an intricate language.
Hey, @Loke. I am, but I don’t plan on doing it. Not yet. I’m trying to cope.
That’s cool that you’re learning German.
Just be sure to keep talking to us and your husband.
Thank you for caring, Loke. I’ll periodically let you know how I’m doing.
