Feeling Depressed?

I was feeling a bit depressed the other day, so I called the Help Hotline.

I was put through to a 'call center' in Pakistan.

I explained that I was feeling suicidal.

They were very excited at this news and wanted to know if I could drive a truck or fly an airplane....

(this is a joke sent from my sister in Germany)

Dear Gabrielle,
Not sure if you're just joking or actually depressed. If you're depressed, I hope you'll call your local mental health association for a referral for someone to speak with. Today at church I prayed for you, as I had read your request for prayers in an earlier post about the video production course. I have been thinking for over a year about a career change myself, so I know that can be very unsettling. Hope to hear from you soon.

That's hilarious!

Hi Gabrielle;

That is ridiculous; the call center would almost certainly be in India :)

Dear Lea,

thank you for such a loving response. I was feeling depressed when I wrote that post about video production, but this post was a joke my sister sent me from Germany. I should have noted that.

Livingsword,

You have to suspend your disbelief a little....

By the way, Lea, I will pray for you too about your career change.
