Although I may not have faced what you are facing right now. I want to help if I can, so feel free to send me a message anytime and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Sorry, but I do not take sexual focused chats or chats related to relationships, LGBTQ+ and family violence. Sorry for any inconveinences.
I am Emma. Welcome to 7Cups, I am so happy that you are here; may I remind you of how brave you are for reaching out for help. You're amazing.
I am assuming that before you chat with me you were wanting to know a little bit about me-so here it is: -I am 18
-I'm from Australia. -I have Chronic Pain (Which I have had for about 9 years now). -I struggle with depression. -I also battle anxiety.
-I understand what its like to hate your body and have had problems with disorted eating.
-I have expereince with self-harm and suicidal thoughts.
-I have a good sense of humour and always try to light up any situation (my friends and family have often said that I tell great dad jokes for a female )
-I am a very quiet person and an introvert.
-Passionate about Music, reading and Writing. I play the Clarinet and a little bit of Piano although I am no good at Piano as I am very uncoordinated. Haha.
-Although these things are vitally important to me, I became a listener because my greatest passion of all is helping others. I know I can't necessarily solve your problems, but I can ensure you that I will NEVER let you face them alone.
-I Love Elephants, perhaps a little too much, but hey at least they make me happy!!!
-I absolutely love Psychology and the way our minds work, I am not clinically trained nor do I claim to have the skills of a psychologist, but I have done psychology throughout high school and have a reasonable understanding of the human brain.
-My biggest goal right now would be to study Medicine.
I hope to one day become a Paediatrician or a Neuroscientist. I would really love to one day delve deeper into the origins of pain and hopefully develop a cure or at least a more effective treatment for Chronic Pain to reignite the hope of so many people who are suffering from this debilitating and invisible disease.
I want you to know that I am on your team no matter what you are facing; no matter how big or small it may seem to you, because YOU MATTER!!!! Yeah you, the one who believes that they are truly alone, the one who is at the very edge of their rope, the one who is begging for a friend, anything you are facing, YOU ARE NEVER ALONE HERE!! I know what it feels like to be so alone, and you don't have to walk through the darkness on your own; I am here, reach out your hand, you can be real with me.
I will leave you with these quotes:
"Although you didn't choose to be a warrior, you've been drafted into this battle. But you are bravely fighting!!!" (We didn't choose the hard times, and it isn't fair, but face them with kindness and stay strong, because the battle will end and you will come out victorious).
"You can't stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes" -Winnie the Pooh (because sometimes reaching out for help is both the hardest and most rewarding thing you will ever do).
Thank you very much for listening to me during the worst night of my life. The best person I could pick.
