Crisis Counselor: It’s understandable to feel that way when it’s so hard to see past your depression. Would you be interested in coming up with ways to manage the racing bothersome thoughts?
Caller: It really helps to talk about it, and I guess just figure out how to stop thinking so negatively.
Crisis Counselor: It sounds like you've been carrying your depression for a while, I imagine it's heavy.
Caller: Well my anxiety and depression has ruined a lot of friendships and relationships. I feel like I always end up alone and it's scary.
Crisis Counselor: Hey there. It looks like you're going through a rough patch tonight. Can you tell me a bit about why you’re texting in? I'm here to listen and help as best I can.
Caller: I just need someone to talk to.
