I wonder what it would be like meeting face to face with some members here

I talked on the phone with a member here a few days ago, which i was so nervous i couldn't stay in one spot and my body was getting hot,my face got sweaty.... but then when we started chatting it was amazing how much we have in common she knew exactly what i meant we both got a little emotional and we actually laughed together (i loved it)

  • I can't talk on phones they drive me nuts lol

    But it would be cool if I could โ˜บ

  • I hate talking on the phone it usually givesme anxiety i mostly texts... i really wanted to talk to her and she was funny

  • It gives me anxiety too I have a phobia of talking on them.

    It's sounds like you had fun though.

  • ๐Ÿ˜ i actually did.

  • Goooood ๐Ÿ˜‹

  • I have a phobia about answering them. I always hate when it is one of those stupid call centers where they have the automated dialing systems where you end up with silence on the phone. Don't they think about the people who have had to deal with nuisance callers?

    So I let my answer machine get all the calls. Needless to say that really bugs my family. Admittedly about 50% of the time I don't get to the phone quick enough to answer it. I keep telling them that my phone is not permanently attached to my hand. :-D

    Anyway I made a good friend through the forums, we do video calls now rather than phone calls, because it is cheaper if you have the internet and no worries about talking on the phone. :-D

  • The people in those call centres are only doing their jobs ,even though they are really annoying.

    I hardly ever answer any calls anyway ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • I know they are, it is just hard when you get flash backs when you answer the phone and no one is there. So rather than give them a row I let me answer machine take the calls. :-D

  • I just hang up straight away.

  • What if it's someone important

  • If they know me they will text me.

  • Get an answer machine or someone who just hangs up. :-D

    Suppose that is not the worst responses they get. :-D

  • I prefer texting it makes me less anxious

  • Same here.

  • Plus i like the emojis lol

  • Another reason to not answer the phone lol

  • ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ i know right. Another perfect reason

  • Nobody will answer the phone anymore if they read these reasons ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • I mean look at these little guys๐Ÿค“๐Ÿคก๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ‘บ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฅ˜ too adorable

  • Yeah even the crap ones are great. ๐Ÿ˜

  • And mobile phones are supposed to make communication easier. :-D

  • They do make it easier but annoying also cause people can call you at anytime. โ˜บ

  • ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š they also make it easier to block too .

  • True, it's bliss! ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Pure bliss ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ it just doesn't get any better than this

  • Well I might put a message on my answering machine with two words only.. hehe


  • ๐Ÿค“ what two words lol

  • I forget them now ๐Ÿ˜š

  • Comee onnnnnnn LMAO i think i know

  • You are correct! Lol

  • ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ lol ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  • ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  • So does my Dad, he hates technology, but managed to find the emojis. I get odd texts from him with all these emojis. :-D

  • Lol your dad knows the emojis are too cute not to be shared

  • I'd be happy to whatsapp fellow sufferers x

  • Do you need to swap numbers for that WhatsApp?

  • Yes

  • Ok not for me then. I use hangouts, but I'd not talk anyway. ๐Ÿ˜ถ

  • Is that the blushing emoji ๐Ÿ˜

  • No its me with my mouth shut ๐Ÿ˜

  • ๐Ÿ™„ alright then lol

  • ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Me too regarding the phone. Does it cause you anxiety?

  • I always thought it was me, get very uncomfortable talking on phones, but I guess I'm not alone. Would you mind me asking you what you don't like about it and/or if it's a source of anxiety for you?

  • It's a source of anxiety for me, i get nervous my body tensed up i can't even stay in one place.it usually helps if the person is funny it calms me since i love laughing... What about you why is it uncomfortable for you??

  • Where r u ๐Ÿ˜”

  • I think it be cool xx

  • Me too

  • I think it would be nice to have close lifelines or buddies.

  • Definitely

  • I talked with someone from the group too! โ˜บ she's a total sweetheart. So easy to talk to and can't wait to speak to her again. Felt like I've known her a long time. Love ya๐Ÿ˜—

  • I was hoping you would see the post hun ๐Ÿ˜˜

  • I'm scared for you. I've been crying non stop. I hope you are ok. I wish there was some way to communicate

  • I loveeeeeeee you ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ i was so shocked when mom got the mail and she gave me the envelope you're amazing

  • I need to do this as well a call I'm totally awkward but I know it would be good for me

  • You have to try it, it was amazing cause the other person will get it since they might be going through something similar to what you're going through

  • Absolutely

  • I wouldn't mind meeting you Danielle you were the first person to reach out to me made me feel better as well, wouldn't mind texting if that's not weird

  • I was happy to help, how are things btw

  • Still dealing with anxiety and trying to push the depression aside, hoping that focusing on the task at hand will help me feel better about the debt situation so far so good

  • I'm from Scotland
