There's been a lot of excellent advice on this thread. Pensive, it can definitely be frustrating or upsetting when you've just arrived in a foreign country ("just" being a relative term that can mean several months or more). I'd like to add my voice to the people saying to put it out of your mind for a while and see how you feel in a couple or three months. It's amazing how quickly our feelings can change, and by then you'll also have a little more experience to go on. There's no hurry at this point, so take your time and think carefully about your options.

Definitely. The PSG line, in particular, is specifically anonymous. For ease of reference, here are the numbers:
JETLine (talk to a Programme Coordinator)
9 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Mon - Fri
AJET Peer Support Group (talk to another JET trained in listening)
8 p.m. to 7 a.m., every day
