I called Social Phobics Anonymous

I called last week but nobody was there. Today I called again, the Social Phobics Anonymous, asked the guy what I'm supposed to press so nobody can hear me, this guy told me not to interrupt, disconnected me, I called again, then he said he's goin to press criminal charges if I call again and disconnected me. All I wanted to do was listen to the conversation and maybe then participate. I've only been there a few times and you can't give advice to people, this is not therapy or support, it's just a guy reading material from the site which other people get a chance to read the same thing, so if you're thinking about calling, be careful, this guy whoever he is, he has some major problems. This so called support group is useless.

I was on the line and remember hearing your call. I would call in every week. The moderator i think his name is Phil, seems to have paranoia about people gossiping and spreading rumors about the callers. And would go on long rants about it. Ive heard him several times hang up on people and threaten legal action. Yeah, right. Really not a good atmosphere for socially anxious people, and not helpful at all. i Havent called back in a while

Sounds like a scam...

i bet the whole things being run by psych patients in a hospital somewhere as part of there treatment plan or as just something to keep em occupied during the day.

" Dad died and I slipped in a coma, I was awake but I listened to no one. I was distant, I was pissed off, I was the last living Christoff, and I was angry with the other side of my window. A side that I wasnt built for. A side that I wasnt fit for. Convinced I was better off indoors, untill my pills run out and my killed buzz makes me sick till I refill my script up "

At least he didn't tell you to snap out of it and then declare you too stubborn to be cured.
