Lostdaughter Posted September 26, 2010 Report Share Posted September 26, 2010 I go to this support group for depression and a woman there gave my phone number to a woman I'd never even met, telling her to call me and that we have a lot in common. We really don't. Anyway, the woman I had never met called me on Thursday. She told me her life is h*ll and that she is having crying spells (she deals with bipolar). I did speak with her for over an hour that day. However, she called me again on Friday, Saturday and today (Sunday). I have not returned her calls. She has had the same job for 14 years and is just having a tough time. My feeling is that it was really not ok for this other woman (with whom I have been friends) to give her my number without notifying me or even asking me if it was ok (although my number is listed on the group list, which I am thinking of removing. I am ok with anyone emailing me and I will respond, but phone calls can be draining). It hasn't even been a month since Dad died and I am finally feeling like life might go on and I have many of my own problems (unemployed, no income, high insurance premiums, etc). Anyway, I feel like I have nothing to give and I'm really not happy that this stranger keeps calling. What should I do? I just want to be left alone right now yet I know she could use some support but I don't even know her yet I don't want her feelings hurt. Thanks for any responses.
