I know about alcohol addiction and Major Depressive Disorder - I am in remission from both. I would be happy to reflect on my experiences when listening to people who are dealing with them. Also, (day job) I know about metabolism, pharmacology and physiology so will be able to listen to people with concerns in those areas though (of course) I will never offer professional advice.
I do not self-harm but I am a volunteer administrator of a board which supports people who do. I may be able to draw on that experience when listening to people who self-harm.
My time-zone is GMT+11. I try (IRL commitments allowing) to be here between 10 am and 2 pm local time.
really effective listener. takes your problems seriously. get them if you can.
Could relate to me really well and was very understanding/non-judgemental
First time I've tried this, and it really helped.
Thanks a lot kokako... It was really great talking to him... he is very kind and caring...
they were really understanding and professional, but I struggled holding a conversation. however, I couls tell they are very helpful.
