Today, I decided to try an online therapy site seeing as I have been feeling very lonely and don’t have any friends to talk to about my issues. After filling out all the initial forms, the site told me there was no one available to speak to me. FML

You may want to try TalkSpace for counseling. I've used it for the last 2-2.5 years. I use it more than in person as I have chronic pain, it's also helpful to me that I can write stuff to my therapist at 4 in the morning. You can "FaceTime" with them, send vice messages or just type. They give you a choice between 3 counselors (after finding out the main reason you're there). I also find it cheaper per month than my in person therapy. The main point though is that you've decided that you need to speak with someone. You can call your GP and ask them for recommendations according to your healthcare provider. If it is of high priority be sure to relay that to them too. Feel better, OP.

that is really great that you took that step. Keep trying. it is really important. Your GP might also be able to recommend a site or groups you can go to. mine did. I use Silver cloud atm

I forgot to add in my comment above about TalkSpace - if you select a therapist and for whatever reason they're just not suitable for you .. you can switch therapists with ease. My first therapist was very nice but she just wasn't the right for for me. So, I decided I would try someone else, they ask a few more questions as well as why the first wasn't a good fit (that's optional). Then they give you a selection of other therapist's that you can read all about and hopefully find one suited to you. If you need someone to chat until you find a therapist, I'm sure there are many people on here. myself included, who would be happy to chat with you. I hope in time you are able to feel happy. {{(hug)}}

14 people are assholes. Don't give up.

also consider Daily Strength. that site has A LOT of folks to talk with.

Great suggestion, Dream Alone. I've been a daily strength member since 2007 and I met a bunch of great people who helped me me through tough times and I was able to do the same in return.

I provide peer counseling via 7cups, myself. Depending on your needs, whether you just need someone to talk to or if you need professional help, you should be able to find *someone* available to talk.

On the bright side.... At least you didn't call the suicide hotline and get hung up on.

those things always charge. some have hidden charges too

Not a therapist, but if you have discord add me at Sargantanas#4287. Know what it's like on the side you're on now. I've no issue lending an ear.

This happened to me once. I don't remember which site I tried to use, but it was specifically for depression and was advertise to people with suicidal thoughts. I didn't have insurance and couldn't afford to see a therapist. After filling out the questionnaire I was basically told I was too depressed and to seek out an actual office.
