Hi All,

This board was set to Read Only and I have changed it to allow posting. I am logged into my Admin account, could someone post to this thread so I know there is general access to the board.

Thank you.

Thank you  >star<

I've tried a few times to get through to the Samaritans in recent weeks. It's a challenge to me because I struggle with telephones. But each time it rings and rings and every now and then there's a message saying that although they are busy "do stay on the line". My anxiety gets worse and worse as the wait for an answer continues then I throw in the "they're obviously so busy and other people more deserving/desperate are waiting for an answer" and I have yet to win the battle with my anxiety and stay in the queue long enough to speak to someone. It just shows how needed the Samaritans are though doesn't it, that it takes so long to get through. I always panic that if I ever did get through, I wouldn't know what to say.
