Listener Rating     
 My name is Mel and I am a verified intermediate listener that suffers from Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, Anxiety, Somatic Symptom Disorder, and a survivor of sexual abuse. I have dealt with years of severe depression cycles where I laid in bed for months at a time in pain and feeling lonely and hopeless and felt like a huge burden to my family. I have had many years of treatment and therapy and group therapy,  thank goodness for some great peer support and my own therapist, I have worked through my issues, and I am finally in a great spot in my life, I want to give back to my community (mental health) in hopes of maybe helping someone by listening and offering my unconditional support.  I have 3 handsome grown sons. I have been married for 25 years to a VERY patient and understanding man and I have a listener twin here at 7 cups, her name is Paula02.  I decided to go back to college since my children are grown to pursue my Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree. I want to become a Therapist or an Addiction Counselor. I am here to listen and support you judgement free through several issues; loneliness, depression, anxiety, self-harm, sexual assault, and bipolar disorder. My preferences are to talk to those suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, Sexual Assault victims and Domestic Violence Victims. I am sorry but I am not accepting long term members at this time. I DO NOT accepting chats on fetishes, sex, or sex fetishes and I DO NOT talk about sex.  I am only taking new chats Mon-Thurs 9am to 12pm EST Please leave me a message and I will return ASAP when I have free time.   Have a wonderful day <3<3  

"Alot of people say that you can't just smile away depression. They are right, but some of it is actually wanting to get better and DOING something to get better. Take your meds, talk to someone or anyone, self-care like eating something delicious and brushing your teeth afterwards"-Anonymous
