Listener Rating     
I am a listener in her mid 50s born and raised in the US. I have been a single mother since 1996 and have worked in the adult industry since 2001 as a "cam model". Areas of personal experience are surviving narcissistic abuse via a parent suffering from "Narcissistic Personality Disorder" (NPD) as well as living with undiagnosed autism until my 50s. I also consider myself a go-to person during breakups because there are four types of people--happily married, happily single, unhappily married, and unhappily single--and I've been all four! 
My goal as a Listener is to continue to develop a deepening compassion for all as well as to assist others to the best of my ability in overcoming issues I have either overcome myself or am actively working to overcome. I am here to listen without judging but I'm currently not a therapist and will refer you to one if I feel it is what you need. Before I became a Listener on this site, I was (and still am) a Member. Feel free to contact me even if I'm not online and I will respond (usually within 24 hours). While I may not be able to connect with you live, we can essentially text each other via this website responding when we both have time. 
I got online in 1993 so can I be a good source of information regarding sites on the Internet that you may not be aware of. For those of you aware of the Myers-Briggs Personaltiy test, I am a ENFP but am an "ambivert" imo. http://www.myersbriggs.org/my-mbti-personality-type/mbti-basics/
I've been into healthy living since I was a teen and have been able to maintain my weight and health despite coming from a family of obesity. My children are grown and out on their own. 7Cups is my way of giving back as I approach my senior years volunteering to help others via my life experiences.
