The sheer number of calls is sad. But I'm glad all those people had someone to talk to.

They wouldn't even talk to me. Just kept telling me they'd help me find someone in my area. I called to talk and they wanted to pass me off right away. I didn't feel like going through the whole process so I hung up. Hope they aren't like that to everyone. I just needed to talk to someone right then and there.

That's too bad, I hope you are ok! Hopefully they can further improve access soon

I used to work at a call center handling legal cases, some involving sexual abuse. We’d often get people that mentioned being suicidal and we were instructed to transfer them to the hotline. Every single time I had to call to transfer I was out on a super long hold before being connected. I always felt so bad

I called once at the height of covid and the lady on the other end couldn't give 2 shits about what I was going thru. She barely said anything and it sounded like she was watching netflix and eating popcorn.

The same thing happened to me, she was like 'maayaam, what do you want me ta do about it'. With all the tone, it was an awful experience! I just couldn't believe this is the job she chose.

As someone who has been suicidal… I’m really sorry that happened to you.

Edit- next time I’m in that place…. I might just try one of those sex hotlines. Now that I mention it… I wonder how often those ladies get those kind of calls

Sounds like a fresh take on the call center- suicide scenario (Phoebe in Friends, Reese in Malcolm in the Middle)
