If somone were to call a helpline, like a suicide helpline, what would happen. Would they ask you questions, or would they just want you to talk? What would you even say? Would they make you give them you name and address, would they trace your number? What would they do? Does anyone have any experience with this?? Are people only supposed to call there if they are like one step away from doing it? Or can people call if they are just having those thoughts but feel like they might be able to make it for awhile longer? Is it better just to call your own mental health professionsals? I'm just confused. I'm just confused at what I feel anymore lately, it changes so much so often. That in itself is so hard to handle. I'm ok, I just need these answers so I'm not as scared aabout asking for help. I've always just *acted* and did sometihing bad, I don't know if I've ever asked for help before acting. I don't know. I want to be better.
