My life has changed while dealing with some health issues. I have learned quite a bit about myself while spending time on doing what I can to keep my body, mind and spirit healthy.
I hope some of the things I have gone through can help you out!
Areas where I can help:
Chronic health problems
Physical health problems
Fear of needles
****Currently not taking on new chats as I am applying for masters programs. If you need to, message me and I will do my best to get back to you asap! If I haven't gotten back to you in 3-5 days please send me another message.****
Hello my name is Anna and I am a twenty-two year old biology healthcare and neuroscience student in Wisconsin. I am getting my degree in genetic counseling. I have always been a listener to those in need and I hope to continue to be so for the rest of my life. I have experience with anxiety and depression as well as other mental illnesses. In addition I am a trained sexual assault victim advocate and human trafficking advocate. I know first hand what it's like to live with anxiety and panic attacks. I know life isn't always easy and I want to be there to walk in your shoes if even for a short time. You'll never walk alone.

Although I am unable to be online all the time feel free to send me a message and we can set up a time to talk! I look forward to chatting with you!
Hey, I'm Anastasia (but that's a long awkward name so Anna is fine!) I enjoy reading, helping others, playing with my cat and makeup and fashion. I've experienced anxiety my whole life and have recently become depressed; I'm currently under diagnostics for other mental health conditions. I hope to help you, and give you a place to vent when you need one - don't hesitate to ask for me!
New job at work has me traveling more, plus life events mean that I'll be away a bit more over time.Â I'll still try to respond to messages if possible, but will be unavailable for live chats and more delayed in responses from:
- May 9
- May 16
- May 20-May 27
- May 30-June 2
Otherwise, my normal availability will stand - I can schedule one hour live chat appointments Monday-Thursday during the day (10am-6pm Eastern) and will try to respond to messages within 24-48 hours, with slightly slower times on weekends as I do not typically log in here Friday-Sunday much.
Â Hi all, I'm glad you've found my profile here! I truly love to listen and help others, and am particularly versed in eating disorders, work stress, and sexual assault, though happy to discuss anything, including sexual issues / sexuality. If you feel like you could use some extra support or help working through a problem, please reach out!
You can start a chat with me if I'm online or to message me if I'm not and we can set up a time. I'm in the US in Central Time and somewhat flexible during the day Monday-Thursday. I'm hard to catch sometimes, so plan to set up an appointment with me.Â I'm also open to messaging back and forth not live, but more frequently, if that's preferable for you.
If you see me in the forums, you'll know I have a few favorite quotes around recovery and strength that I throw around all the time, so I'll share them here, too.
"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think"
"Never forget you are worth more than the value you place on yourself."
"Every day might not be a good day but there is good in every day."
Much love to all,
I am on a break until further notice. I am not taking any new mentees, members or projects; thank you for understanding.
My name is Cadence, but you can call me CadieÂ if you'd like. I've been here for over two years, so I'd like to say I'm pretty well-versed on the ropes of 7Cups. If you have any questions at all, feel free to let me know.
Not one judgment will be passed here. This is a safe space, where you can free your mind, and let go of the things that may have been bothering you for a long while. I am a firm believer that every single person on this entire world deserves a voice, and deserves to be heard. While I can't solve every problem you're going through, I can be there for you. I won't make you feel unwanted. Please feel free to strike up a chat; I will reply as soon as I can. You've made a huge step by just coming here, and I'm proud of you for taking that initial leap. It's the hardest, and you've done it. It's an amazing feat.

My site Involvement:â¥Â I am a community mentor leader, and a quality and forum mentor. I do different projects relating to these three leadership positions.
â¥Â Community Mentor Leader: I am the general leaderÂ of the Appreciation Team, along with the amazing @fluffyUnicorns84 andÂ @Jack. If you would like to join, please click here. For all other questions relating to the team, please reach out via PM. I'm more than happy to answer any questions.
â¥Â Quality: I am the general leader (in-process) for the Listener Written Guides project. I also partake in the Anonymous Evaluation project, and will occasionally pick up a few Quality Coaching chats.Â
â¥Â Forum: I adore the forums, so you will likely see me contributing to the conversation in some sort of way. I edit posts to ensure confidentiality, I remove posts and threads that could be considered harmful to the community, and I work with fellow forum mentors to ensure that the forums are the best place they can be.
I am also always open to new projects and ideas, so if you ever need more manpower behind a project, or need someone to fill a leadership position/add contributions, let me know.
I love you, little flowers <3
@Iara has been my sister from pretty much day one; she's one of the most amazingly spirited people I have ever met, and I love her dearly; if you speak with her you'll be in good hands.
@JackÂ is nothing short of a full-fledged superhero. His optimism, encouragement, love and enthusiasm are enough to make anyone smile for ages. Jack is a beautiful person who I wholeheartedly adore; I am forever indebted to him for his support, kindness and grace. I like him more than cakeÂ and naps. <3
@ZaraSmiles is a beacon of light and peace for all who come her way. Her elegance and compassion alone are enough to humble anyone. She's insightful, intelligent, sweet as candy, and overall just someone I truly aspire to be like one day. <3

@Rebecca is one of the most intelligent and wonderfully amazing people I've ever met. Her insight brings so much to the table, and she never ceases to amaze me with her grace and finesse. Anyone would be lucky to call her a friend!
Hello hello! My name is Danny (pronouns they/them), and welcome to my own personal slice of teacake here at 7 Cups of Tea! To give you an idea of who I am, I'm a college student and part-timeÂ drag queen that fully embodies a phrase that some Saint in like 15th Spain (St. Ignatius) said: Go forth and set the world on fire. While I'm not at all religiousÂ I've found it a really helpful idea and use it as my guiding principle in my day to day life.Â About me as a listener: I've been a listener on and off for about three years now, which has been quite a ride! I love talking with people and providing support in any way that I'm able to, while I'm happy to talk about anything, I do have some specialties based on my own personal experiences:Â LGBTQ+ Issues
Substance Abuse Issues
Relationships & Break Up Support
School Issues & Bullying
Managing Your EmotionsSo let's get down to business to talk (defeat the Huns)Â and share emotions!
NOTE: I am currently working in Australia as an au pair, just outside a small town. I have limited WIFI of only 8GB's a month (yes, it's still possible to not have broadband!) and the connection isn't always strong enough. It might take a while for me to respond. Please keep that in mind :)
Hi there! I am an ambassador on 7 Cups of Tea, which means I spend a lot of time 'behind the scenes'. I am not online to take chats as often as I used to, but I will always respond to your message, even if it takes a couple of days. For questions or concerns about different teams or badges, you can always reach me by email as well (email@example.com).
I've struggled with really low self-esteem, which lead to depression and other problems in my teenage years. Feel free to talk to me about those things and ask me any question you like; I would really like for other teens to not go through these problems as long as I did. Besides the experiences I had personally, I just got my Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology, so I am able and willing to support people struggling with all kinds of problems and ages as well, don't be shy! Besides any mental issues, you could also talk to me about anything else. I would like to think that I am really open minded, so just give it a try :)
I like to sing, read, write and eat, and I would really love to travel the world. My motto is "luctor et emergo" , meaning "I struggle and emerge". I truly believe that anyone can overcome their battles. If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect. Glad you are here and I hope you'll find what you're looking for. Take care, Evi.
Hello! My name is FrancisBacon, and I am a verified listener here at 7cups.
Like most listeners, I have experienced my fair share of ups and downsÂ throughout my life, and I am happy to lend an ear to those going through hard times.
I do not claim to be an expert on anything, but I will definitely try my best to support you - or at the very least put you in contact with those who can support you - through whatever it is you are facing.
I'm happy to talk to you about almost anything, though the areas in which I feel I may be of particular assistanceÂ includeÂ dealing with family stress, supporting sick loved ones, and feelings of loneliness and hopelessness.
If you're in need of immediate support and I am not around, I highly recommend you contactÂ one of the fantastic verified listeners which you may find here - trust me, you're in good hands!Â
Listeners: I am here to help. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about being a listener or using the site in general.
-Verified Listener-A little bit about me!
HeyÂ lovelies my name is Joel (Many of you originally knew me as Renaenae)! I have been through a lot in my life so I would love to be able to help you through anything! I am here to talk even if you just need a friend to come too. My passion in life is playing music and getting involved in the community! Even if it seems like your problems can't be fixed, I am sure it would help you out to just have an ear to talk to, and I would be more than happy to be that ear - even if you can't fix it, I assure you that you will at least feel somewhat better by just letting it all out. You can never be a burden or a bother to me!
I may not appear online but I am on at least once a day so feel free to message me! I will reply as soon as I am free!
Always remember, you are worth so much! You may not feel it but I promise you, you are worth so much more than you can ever think possible!-Projects-

Hello! I am so glad you are here. You have taken the first step in your own self-care and, for that, you are amazing.
I believe in the healing power of being listened to. I know that the fundamental thought of just being listen to may seem like it isn't very healing, but quite the contrary is true. When you are listened to, you feel: empowered, understood, connected, real, relieved. These are just some of the powerful feelings you might have. I am more than happy and excited to be able to help you on your journey of happiness (whatever it is that that means to you).
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you feel more comfortable or if there is something that I do that does not feel helpful; I love to grow and learn and I cannot do that without
Welcome to your journey to happiness!
