*** I cannot take people looking for long term listener-member support at this time, I'm really sorry <3 ***

Hello lovely people!

Welcome to my little and currently pretty bare corner of 7 Cups! I'm a 20 (help! I'm 20... :o) year old, second year medical student in the UK, dreaming of specialising in paediatric psychaitry. I'm also a Youth Worker at a charity for disabled children and young people. 

You're welcome to PM me if you'd like to talk! I'm not currently taking long term members, but I'm happy to have a one-off chat with you! I have personal experience with self-harm, anxiety and depression, as well as experience supporting people with personality and eating disorders. As a full time student unfortuantely I can be quite busy, so please give me a day or two to get back to you. My timezone is GMT, although I do sometimes keep slightly squiffy hours...
