Phone call:

PeerA. I’m about to call the crisis line. I’ve had horrible anxiety all day; I haven’t eaten, and i’m starting to feel panic now. I’m getting really scared.

(After trying to chat, i could not focus on the conversation any longer, and had to get off the line to call another support that was local. I needed in-person support, and I needed to get away from the house immediately.)

Facebook, about an hour later:

PeerA. Getting sushi and going over to (…)’s. Talked to sponsor too; was good. Good to get out.

PeerB. nice yay! (()) xoxo way to honour the call. I feel excitement when I think back to the day we met it. was a leap of faith for me. I feel comfort to have you in my life and excitement and hope when I Imagine a future with you there, many hugs with love.

PeerA. I am very touched. (and mindful about how i take it, from our previous conversations). Thank you for telling me how you feel about me. This kind of honesty can change the world.
