Anxiety or Depression Sponsor

I wish there was an anxiety or depression sponsor. As in, when I’m feeling anxious or depressed and acting irrationally, there can be someone I can call anytime who can help calm my emotional brain and not to cause any damage to my relationships or life. Someone who I have some sort of relationship with and knows what it feels like.

Is this a thing? I know about crisis lines, but this is different.

Is this weird? stupid? helpful? thoughts please… message or comment.

  1. You know, there are a few groups on Facebook that I’ve found helpful. Groups of people that can support one another when someone is having a really hard day/week/year, and a place to vent. Has been an amazing outlet.

  2. Aloha,

    There are self-help groups for almost everything these days. I might look into Meet- ups in your area. Sometimes they have surprising groups in existence. Actually you can make your own group on Meet- Ups…not a bad idea.

    I turn to food…getting large though!

  3. Hi Sylvia,

    I’ve been looking for the same source around my area but I haven’t been able to find a group or association. Is not weird or stupid to reach out for help, specially if you can find someone knowledgeable and that can relate to up and downs of this condition. If you need someone to talk to we could email. Have you found an association or groups that could help?
    Stay positive and ignore intrusive thoughts.
    Best Wishes

    1. Thank you so much for your comment ! I haven’t found anything yet, but I’m been overwhelmed with school and work. Hoping to look into it more soon or even end up organizing something.


  4. I agree, this would be so helpful to many including myself. I often find myself overwhelmed with my thoughts and just end up winding myself up and self destructing. I’m not a fan of medication and would really help to have someone to reach out to when things become unbearable. If you find anything please do post it up. And I’d be willing to be there for someone if they would be willing to be there for me.
