I want to let people know about this app, especially for those people who suffer from social anxiety where telephone communications might be triggering or uncomfortable.
It’s called “TalkTo” and is available for iOs devices for FREE here and is also available in Google Play for Android devices! Essentially, it allows you to ask businesses questions by sending a text message instead of calling. For businesses that aren’t set up to answer a text message or an email (it will try to send it either way) a TalkTo agent will make the call FOR you, and then will text you back with the company’s response.
I have used this app to make reservations, check for stock, check store hours, and more. Certain businesses will have a higher response time than others but if you ask ahead of time then you won’t have a problem. I sent a restaurant a question this afternoon (see picture) and i had a response within 15 minutes.
Give it a try!
oh my fucking GOD. Ive needed this so badly. My anxiety is horrendous when talking on the phone or even thinking about calling people like i shake and cry and it puts my life on hold bc of it. this is so helpful
MS day 2014.
MS is a condition where the bodies immune system attacks the central nervous system stripping away the layers of the nerves and leaving them exposed and scar tissue appearing in the brain and spine. This can lead to symptoms such as blindness and loss of sensation in the limbs.
It is one of the most common nervous system conditions in young people yet had the least awareness - mostly diagnose in those 20 - 40. I was a rare case at diagnosis of only 14 years old. Please show your support with red lipstick (on cheeks for men) on the 28th. The condition affects three times more women than men hence ‘kiss goodbye to MS’
