If you feel that you are in crisis (beyond the help of a cuddler) & need someone to talk to, please call 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433). This is the National Suicide Hotline. I have used them a few times myself & can honestly say that they are the best resource if you just need someone to talk to.
I highly reccomend The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker. This book talks about using your own intuition to keep yourself safe. Do you ever walk into a room & get that feeling that something is wrong, but you can't tell what it is? Most people would ignore that feeling, but this book teaches you to pay more attention to those feelings & analyze why you are having them.
