Over the past couple days, a couple really nice call takers have encouraged me to continue blogging about the things I’ve experienced with the call lines and the mental health field.
I’ve been reading these posts from the past years. I thought they would sound hyperbolic. If anything, they sound too accepting. Some of the things that happens on these lines are so way past unacceptable. Even from this view, when I’m not as upset about it, the things people have said are way past unacceptable.
I’m glad that I wrote this down back when it happened. Some of it is so beyond toxic. I don’t even remember all the details of how toxic much of it was at this point. I also notice that many of the people who said the toxic stuff aren’t around, or I haven’t heard their voice in months or years.
Thank you to the nice people who encouraged me to continue on with this blog.
