My name is Jae, and I'm a Verified Active Listener here at 7 Cups. 

I am transitioning back from a self-care break!

First thing, which is always important to me: pronouns, and gender you go by. I go by They/Them/Theirs!   :)

I was adopted from China around the age of 2, where I was brought home to the USA. I was born with a cleft lip and cleft palate, which if you didn't know, if basically a gap in your lip and upper mouth, sometimes nose due to a birth defect. This posed an obstacle for feeding, so I was very malnourished and was at an orphanage. Back to the adoption, I lived a fairly decent life with my adoptive family, until mental health issues started becoming an issue.

I started therapy at 4 years old and still continue with it. Over the years I've gone through rages/meltdowns, anger issues, being bullied, being abused and neglected, S-Attempts and thoughts, loss, grief, parents divorce, moving from place to place, physical illnesses, surgeries, attachment issues, a break up, identifying in LGBTQ+, switching schools a lot, unstable family, lying, stealing. I've done multiple treatment programs and therapists, inpatients, residential, day programs, intensive outpatients, outpatient programs.

I deal with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Dissociative episodes, ADHD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Anorexia Nervosa .
I also deal with a host of medical issues, such as Gastroparesis (a paralyzed stomach) and I have a feeding tube that goes straight into my intestines, I was born with a cleft lip and palate, I also have hearing loss (I wear hearing aids), MTHFR Mutation and Homocystinuria (both rare genetic conditions that affect my metabolism) and have Osgood Schlatter's Disease of both my legs.

But I am slowly making peace with my mind, body and spirit, making each day a reminder why I am still alive and should stay alive. That there's not people out to "get" me. There's people out there to love me and help me. 

These are my roles, here at 7 Cups Of Tea:

- Verified Listener

- Sponsor to Sponsees

- Safety Profile Patrol

- Verified Listening Team

- People Of Colour Support member

- Long Term Listener/Support


Other things:

I enjoyed sharing some of my story--- now, I'd like to hear yours!

Such and amazing human being and this will be a longer message because This conversation meant so much to me. I came looking for help with some stuff that was affecting my life big time and every single day it would just ruin my day and make me sad. I booked a time to talk to them and they made me feel better almost insantly, they helped so much and let me talk and I have a habit of feeling like I annoy people but this person would assure me that I wasnt. If you ever get a chance to talk to this person about lgbtq+ stuff just do it especially if its getting really bad. Thank you so much for everything you helped me so much
