♡ hi ! ♡

i'm rrretsuko ! i love helping others and i am comfortable with providing support for just about any topic (except the ones listed under the "chats i do not take" section, thank you ! <3). though i cannot say i've had experience with every subject, i'd like to try my best with listening to others who need someone to talk to.

i have had personal experience/been medically diagnosed with the following:

MDD (major depression disorder)

DMDD (disruptive mood dysregulation disorder)

psychosis

ED (eating disorder)

on a happier note, i also love glitter, the color pink, animals, and music !

my availability :

green - i am online and accepting chats !

orange - i am online but either busy helping a member or in the support rooms. if you leave a message, i won't reply until i am done helping the member i am listening to at that moment or when i leave the support rooms !

red - i am offline and not responding to any messages at the moment. if you leave a message, i may take awhile to respond depending on how busy i am !

mondays - saturdays : i am usually accepting chats the whole day, but i may be busy at times :)

sundays : i am normally more busy on these days ! <3

my roles on cups ! :

i am refraining from holding any roles besides chatroom moderator, peer supporter, and safety patrol team member at the time as i feel i am not able to fulfill any other responsibilities <3 but please feel free to ask me about any roles i may have held in the past !

verified listener : i have been verified by the community based on my commitment to active listening skills and quality chatting ! i passed a mock chat with a mentor in order to receive this badge :)

chatroom moderator : i moderate the chatrooms for the newbie hub (teen community room 24/7 and sharing circle) community and the eating disorder community to make the rooms a safe and supportive place for everyone !

• safety patrol team member : i help to make sure user profiles are following the 7 Cups guidelines ! <3

 peer supporter : i help support listeners after a difficult chat or with specific chat situations <3

previous roles: peer appreciation team member, listener check-in host, forum supporter, subcommunity leadership events team member, listener events team member, LDP mentor, project agent, listener verifier team member, teen discussion host, and listener coach

chats i do not take ! [please read] :

• any flirty or sexual conversations

• chats from members who are suicidal or actively self-harming and seeking crisis support as it is against 7 cups guidelines and a big trigger for me. please refer to a hotline here instead

• roleplaying chats of any sort <3

• chats from members who treat me disrespectfully as it upsets me

• topics on age regression as it can be triggering for me <3

• chats that get too graphic/detailed when describing sexual events

side notes ! [please read] :

• i do not recommend relying on me for fast replies if you message me out of the blue for an unscheduled chat 

there are chances i may not get back to you in certain circumstances. this most likely means that i am busy and unable to give you support at the time. you can find another listener here in the meantime !

• i tend to use emojis such as ‘❤️, ‘:O’, ‘:)’, and :( frequently. if this is a trigger for you, please feel free to let me know !

• i also have experience with dissociation, mania, phobias, finding/questioning sexual and gender identities (i'm bisexual !), toxic/abusive relationships, and sexual assault. if any of my experience (as well as the issues i have listed as direct lived experienced aka the topics with stars by them and have been diagnosed with) could be useful for you, let me know !
