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)

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.
Thank you for the validation, I didn’t know if needing someone to talk to about this loss and the daily struggles because of it was a good enough reason to use it but your reassurance helps me a lot
People here are understanding and will listen. Most here struggle with depression and anxiety so therefore know it on a personal level.
Sorry to hear about your dog. That is tough for anyone.
It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever been through, I just don’t really have someone I can vent to about it
You need to vent about losing your dog? I will listen. I have been there.i have had to put down a dog and a cat and it was like losing a family member.
Ya I do, I just have never experienced loss this horrible, and she was murdered by someone who is very unstable, and it’s just killing me inside
I'm sorry to hear that. I couldn't even imagine what that would be like. I'm sure though that it without would bring out a range of emotions.
It does, I just have so much grief I don’t even know where to start
Wish I had something to say that would help but it is a tough situation. Are you seeing a therapist by chance? I don't know if you have PTSD from your dog getting murdered but it sure sounds like a situation that would qualify as such.
