It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to 7 Cups!  I am glad you're here and excited to talk with you. I've worked for many years as a high school English teacher and guidance counselor. After that, I worked and taught at two universities.

I have been living with bipolar disorder for almost 20 years, and I've studied the disorder extensively, along with many others covered in the DSM-V; however, I prefer not to rely on or to get anxious about such labels and diagnoses, as label-focusing takes away from dealing with the symptoms. I have also worked in the past as a drug and alcohol sponsor.

Wherever you've been, I've likely been there too at some point. I am happy to help in any small way I can. Message me any time. If I am not online for a live chat, I will return your message and we can talk.

All the best,

Great listener helped my find the solution myself, very responsive and insists to help you more than you do. Definitely recommended
Tony understood my experiences and offered to keep in contact. They were insightful and so kind. Thank you.
Tony4200 is the kind of listener I came hoping for. He's honest, attentive and very informative and I feel that his method of relating issues to his personal experiences made the conversations more engaging. Thank you so much Mr. Tony! It's been a pleasure discussing things out with you :)
