"I was camping alone about six hours from the nearest town. By the time I got to camp, it was getting dark so I got my tent set up and immediately started chopping firewood. I had no sooner started when I put the axe through my foot. Crisis Care helped me to settle down and get a plan together to figure out how I was going to deal with this. I can't imagine what might have happened if I had continued on in the state of mind I was initially in. In situations like that you have got to have your head right, and Crisis Care sure set me straight!" -Gary W
