Hello! My name's Raleigh, and I'm a young woman in my twenties on the east coast, USA-nice to meet you!
I'll be taking a short break from the community, but will try to get back to you if you'd like to send me a message.
I'm a trained active listener and I like to support people struggling with all kinds of things, and I also enjoy just keeping people company, too. You might like to know that I have personal experience (myself or those I love) in dealing with bipolar disorder, anxiety and panic, depression, psychosis, psychiatric hospitalization, eating disorders, OCD, alcohol abuse, ADHD, death of a loved one and chronic illness, among other things. I enjoy reading, writing (I'm a novelist), traveling, and music. I've overcome a lot in life and would like to help by listening to you. If I'm online, then please feel free to say hello and start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and I'll get back to you ASAP. I look forward to hearing from you!
