Recently, I’ve had a rough time, I lost my dog and it’s been very hard on me, and the past couple weeks, the way that I’ve coped is when I’m having a panic or anxiety attack or kind of spiraling or just exploding after bottling my emotions all day, I’ve started coping by contacting the crisis line, and of course they tell me it’s ok and they’re always here, but I always feel like I’m not important enough for them, and idk if I should be contacting them almost daily now, and I almost feel like I need to do it because I need that person to talk to on a daily basis with the empathy and validation who aren’t annoyed by me and idk, I guess rn I just want validation that this is okay or validation it’s not and maybe what else I could do (and friends is not an option)
Idk if this is healthy or not - Mental Health Sup...
This is ok! Absolutely. It's called crisis line for a reason; to be used in the case of crisis! And dear, that's exactly what you are doing.
Well of you to be resourceful enough to be calling them, connecting, instead of not talking with anyone, sharing your thoughts and feelings.
It's healthy to seek help and you deserve it!
All the best.
