"Well, I want to wake up and maybe be better. I want to come through and not be second guessed. I want to find the money to fix my nose and learn to breathe without pacing. I don’t want to be depressed. I want to find a haircut that fits me that hasn’t been co-opted by Nazis. I’ll settle for some rest. I want to move on. I want to feel more important. I’m trying to be fine. I swear I’m trying to be my best." 




There may be larger lapses of time between conversations due to some personal matters. Not necessarily on a mental health break. I just have a lot going on in my life to deal with at the moment.


 Hello. I am CoreDad87 but you can call me Core or Dad if thats what you prefer. I googled anxiety and depression help one night and I ended up here. Once arriving on cups and talking to listeners,  I realized  that I was meant to  try and  help others  along with getting the support I need . As someone who has and is going though a lot, I'm here to help others through listening. If you want to just talk about random stuff to distract you, we can do that too. Send a request if you need me.


I would like to warn everybody that I do have two small children so sometimes I'm a little distracted but I will get back to you when I can. Also please remember that I am only human and although I will do my best to help support you, I have my own struggles as well so I am not always available to immediately chat. If you leave me a message explaining in short what you would like to talk about I will always get back to you in the most timely manner I can. ----------------------------
Fun stuff about me....I collect gems and minerals, grew up on a farm, toured in punk and hardcore bands, spent 4 years in an intentional community focused on homeless ministry, love snack cakes, and am shorter than I look in my profile pic
