My pdoc has never ever said it's OK to call her while in crises. She has never said I could call her. I don't think she wants me to call her. She asked me what I could do next time I want to OD. We came up with some things to do. I can try to think rationally about things by using cognitive behavioural techniques. I can call the Distress Centre. I can post to Babble about it. I can try to distract myself. Those were the things we came up with. She didn't offer that I could call her. I don't think she wants me to call her.
