I've called a suicide hotline before so idk if it's anything like that, but it's nothing too cheesy. they just ask for the facts and give some suggestions of what you can do in the meantime to distract yourself or make things better just for the short term, and then ask what you can do in the long term (e.g. meds, therapy, etc.). they've been trained and they know what's up so they're not going to say anything too demeaning or corny.

+1 for that,in my experience they dont really say "ohh youre so strong" they just listen to you if you want to talk, sometimes you get responders that will stay with you on the phone for as much time as you can even if you dont talk much. They do talk about things oyu can do to help yourself and distract yourself. The only bad experience I had was when a responder told me to flush my pills down the toilet even though they were prescribed mood stabilisers haha

if people would stop commenting on my height and calling me a fucking freak for it to my faves that would be good thanks. same goes to comments like "you could be a model if you were pretty!" and "if you had bigger boobs you could be a model" haha fuck off and no mom those are not compliments and you threatening to send me to get help because I hate my height isn't helping either thanks and kindly fuck off. also stop screaming at me in front of my friends as my brother laughs thanks I hate myself anyway I don't need your help
