Where are you? What is your city?


Hey WhatIsThis,

If you’re struggling to communicate what it is you’re dealing with to a hot line, we’re happy to help. We also recommend sharing whatever it is you have on here with the person on a hotline, so you don’t have to explain yourself twice. There’s plenty of hotlines in our “About” section on the bottom right of the screen, but should you find the words, the best one is below. 

Suicide hotline: 800-784-2433

Again, the best thing you can do right now is communicate your feelings in an effective way. Since you’re posting on here, you already know this. Try reaching out to someone, any friend, family member, or mental health professional that you know. To bottle up what’s inside will only shake things up more. 

All the best to you,



When the time comes, these hotelines might be of additional help as well.

Hi WhatIsThis,

I know what you can do with yourself- first give yourself a hug.  Go ahead put your arms around yourself (might feel silly at first) and comfort yourself.  Say words that you would say to a friend who was hurting…Then give yourself to others by finding a place to volunteer, a neighbor to help, a park to keep clean, animals to take care of at a shelter….

I have been taking an anti depressent for 20 years now and I still find it hard to believe that my chemicals were out of balance and that was causing the depression.  Find a good therapist to help you see how you process your feelings and thoughts, to help you develop tools to change your thought patterns etc.  And find a good doctor who will help you find the proper medication to help balance the chemical imbalance.

Your English is very good! You could help others learn it!  Even if you can’t talk you can teach.

It may sound corny but You are a wonderful person, you truly are a miracle.
