Frustration with scam calls and cold calls

Postby shebr » Wed Feb 05, 2020 4:56 pm

Ive got anxiety and sometimes have issues with my temper and Ive been having loads of scam calls lately or random cold calls and they make me really angry to the point where ill burst into tears. I think this is probably irrational but I really dont like it. I hate the way it makes me feel and i hate that i get so angry about it. I've been trying to not answer before checking on online first but then I get worried it could be a call about a family member injured or something :/

Heya :) If this is for a landline, some providers have a spam caller block setup (e.g. you have to approve of the caller before picking up). If this is for a mobile phone, then most phones have some sort of Smart Calling software that you can set up. Either way, worth looking into - I had the same issue and now most spam calls are screened out :)

Remain safe and if it is a issue then block the number/email, talk to someone about the scam message, and see if it is a scam with people around you. Problems come to all, the scams can be the least of our problems, all the best. Good luck.
