I fully agree with your comments. While one can fully understand that we're not always fully rational when we're very distressed, it takes more thought, time, and work, to connect to this site correctly, compose and type a message, and post it here, than to pick up the phone and call an ambulance, doctor, family or friend. Although we care about everyone who posts here, and would all like to be helpful, its rather cruel to choose to call for help in a way that you know specifically prevents those you're addressing from actually being helpful to you. None of us need more examples of situations we greatly care about, in which we are made to feel helpless. We must encourage people to be responsible and take the appropriate steps to get the help they need. By all means talk with us here before a crisis, and after it. But, as I said in another responsec--- if your house or office is on fire, PLEASE call the fire brigade, and don't just post a message about it here on the forum.
