Suicide hotline hang-up

I called the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. I’ve never called it before. But in a moment of absolute weakness, I did.

We talked a few minutes then the rep put me on hold to answer another call. I got disconnected. While I’m sitting there wondering if it’s a sign…they called back. But just a few minutes in, we were interrupted again by a ringing phone that no one was there to answer. It stopped ringing. Which means a call went unanswered. I felt guilty. It’s the suicide prevention network hotline. By the time people are calling there, it’s nearly to late. Get it together people!
