    I need help now. I’m an adult. I need someone to talk to. There is nowhere to go. I’m not calling 911 because I don’t feel I deserve or want to be exposed to an emergency number even though there’s no one I can instantly talk to. This all seems fake – like a big corporate media event – but in the end I’ve googled relentless for help now and nothing. What is this? A big PR event or actual help. I need actual help and there’s nowhere for me to go. And now to get this message sent I have to register to login, God – can’t I can’t any immediate help?

      I am here for you whenever you feel like talking… Been there so many times. It’s great to talk about your feelings and what you feel!

    There are a lot of resources for signs and symptoms – what about actual, instant help when it is needed?

    My comments are awaiting moderation – I don’t have the strength to wait. Bye. Thanks to the media. I wish someone was here to actually help me.
