I’ve spent the last hour picking up the phone, dialling nine of the ten numbers before hanging the reciever back up again.
After nearly an hour of searching for someone who might be able to help, I have the number but I can’t.
What can anybody say to make this all better?
Is it possible for a counsellor on the other end of the phone line to just say some magic words and make the darkness disappear? No, I should think not.
Finally I put the phone back in its cradle and walk away,
Today is not the day.
