New job at work has me traveling more, plus life events mean that I'll be away a bit more over time. I'll still try to respond to messages if possible, but will be unavailable for live chats and more delayed in responses from:
- Jan 21-Jan 24
- Feb 11-Feb 19
- Feb 21-Feb 22
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.
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. 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,
Hi there! I am a graduate student in occupational therapy! We specialize in mental health and physical dysfunction and assist individuals with meaningful and purposeful engagement. Evaluations, assessments, and initiating treatment intervention are a few of the many things we do!
Welcome! I am someone who prefers being truthful and honest as I do not feel pampering is beneficial. I promise, however, to always remain respectful, non-judgmental, and truly invested in your situation. This is my contract with you; the only thing I ask for is your willingness to share. You are on a path and I'd be blessed to walk a little bit of it with you.

===================================================================Hello there, It's really nice to meet you, and thank you for viewing my profile! I am Dovah. (meaning "Dragon")
===================================================================Dear Reader - Unfortunately, inactive - (But please, feel free to connect to another one of our many listeners, we all want to be there)
I care about you. I know those words can sometimes feel like a mirage, or a lie, I know this because I've dealt with homelessness, abuse, depression, anxiety, bullying and things I wouldn't wish upon anyone and I've gone through it without much aid. I know how it feels to feel like you can't go on and when the drought of joy seems unending but I'm here because I could be the First Aid Kit someone has been looking for.
So despite your instinct to say "it's alright, I'm okay" know that you can be honest, leave me a message. Say how you feel without fear or guilt, without remorse or complexity and know that now is only a moment, and that if today is as bad as it gets, see that by tomorrow, today will have ended and that in this moment, you are not alone.
Ignore anything bad others have called you. I am calling you friend.

*****I'M SORRY BUT I WON'T BE ABLE TO TAKE MANY CHATS !!!!!!♥♥♥*****
Heyeyey there! I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea, my name is Nuris and I'm a trained active listener and I like to support people struggling with anxiety, eating dissorders, depression, self-harm, problems with parents, panic attacks, social anxiety or breakups. Appart from that, I'm a normal teenager, I love to watch films and tv shows, reading and listening to music. I don't think people have easy lifes, any of us, neither me, but we can all support each other so we can succeed. I have faith in yourseld and I know you will make it, sweetie! A good wise friend of me once told me that we use to concentrate on the bad parts of life because they are the ones that hurt us the most and the ones we most remember so what we have to do is to focus in the good parts of life even if it is that the sky is pretty beautiful today or that the smell of the rain woke you up, there are good things in life, always. Please never forget that.
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!
If I'm in the chatroom I won't answer 1-on-1 chats and viceversa :)
LISTENERS if you need to be verified, don't be shy and message me, we can set a time when we both are free and do it!
I hope you had a nice day and please remember that you are loved and we all care about you. I'm reeeeeeally happy to see you here♥

I'm Radhika. Or, you could call me Silent, or whatever.
Well, there's not much to say about myself. I'm just a 20 year old who's still working on figuring out her goals and dreams.
I'm not sure if I would be of any help, but I can definitely lend you a supportive ear if you just need to talk or vent. We've all been there, and its nothing to be embarassed about. I myself have had some not so pleasant times in my life, and talking about it on here has immensely helped. So I would wish to be there in the same way for you! :)
I hope you're having a nice day! And if you aren't, I sincerely hope it gets better.
“I know it seems hard sometimes but remember one thing. Through every dark night, there's a bright day after that. So no matter how hard it get, stick your chest out, keep ya head up.... and handle it.” Stay strong
Ah, hello! I'm in my 20s and I support people regardless of their gender identities and orientations (or lack thereof). I particularly gravitate towards those who are struggling with depression, bullying, social anxiety and more. If you're interested in venting or casual chats, that's also okay.
Am I available to chat?
If I'm Online (green circle), don't hesitate to send me a request.
If I'm Busy (orange circle), I'm probably talking to another user. In that case, feel free to send me a message anyway, and I'll let you know if I can talk.
If I'm Offline (grey or red circle), feel free to leave a message to summon me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. =)
I enjoy video games, writing, languages, music, anime and more. I have no triggers, so don't worry about making me uncomfortable. I don't judge, I type fast, and I give you my full attention (if not, I will tell you so in advance, so you know). Don't be nervous, I don't bite!
Praise the sun! \[T]/
I am not currently taking any new chat but if you are a old member then PM me anytime. We have AMAZING listener so please connect to anyone of them and they will be more than happy to help and support you (:
