"Sometimes there is no darker place than our thoughts, the moonless midnight of our mind" -Dean Koontz"We're all needed, even those who sometimes think we're worthless, plain and dull. If we love and allow ourselves to be loved...Well a person who loves is the most precious thing in the world, worth all the fortunes that ever were." -Dean Koontz"Being polite is not only the right way to respond to people, but also the easiest. Life is so filled with unavoidable conflict that I see no reason to promote more confrontations." -Dean Koontz"There's no such thing as being cowardly in a fight" -Edward Elric"Sometimes its good to be scared, it means you have something to lose" -Richard Webber"Just put one foot in front of the other, just get through the day." - Meredith Grey "I'm a human being, I make mistakes.

Proud triplet of the terrific trio @InternalAcceptance and @Chassymom
Former leader of the addiction support team and have since passed the torch on to @InternalAcceptance. So proud of my amazing tripply <3Hi there, I'm AJ but you can call me vinyl, viny or fly. Welcome to my listener profile. Glad you're here with us on 7 cups.
I'm a verified active listener. I'm happy to support you on your journey and help you navigate the bumps in the road you may come across. I've driven over many myself and have acquired much wisdom and compassion along the way. Message me if you're looking for a caring, wise and open-minded set of ears.I'm passionate about helping people in need and am currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree with a major in Psychology and minor in Sociology. I've spent most of my career working with youth with special needs and have recently been spending much of my time volunteering with a local peer-based harm reduction group.I'm happy to chat about whatever's on your mind but I have the most knowledge in the areas of anxiety and panic attacks, drug/alcohol use and harm reduction, autism, ADHD, chronic illnesses and disabilities, coping with strong emotions, sexual orientation and gender identity, and post-traumatic stress.
Please note that I take 1-1 chats in 1 hour time blocks. I do this to make sure that everyone has a chance to be listened to. I'll let you know when there are 10 minutes remaining in your chat so it's easier to start wrapping things up.Looking forward to hearing from all you lovely people. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help when you need it. Through our struggles, we can learn how to harness our strengths
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 (:

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:
- October 23-28
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,
*Not taking new chats at the moment due to time constraints!**Life is a journey that everyone goes through. Think of it as a story told by you. There are many ups in life as well as many downs but it is up to the author of each story to determine the next chapter.* ~Anya Members/GuestMental health is important 365 days/year. Many people suffer from mental health struggles but they are too afraid to speak about it because of the stigma all around us. But what’s harder than dealing with mental health issues, is pretending that you aren’t struggling. You shouldn’t have to pretend like you are always okay, out of fear that others will judge you or talk about you or think any less of you. No matter what you are dealing with, you are still you. The only thing that matters is that you know your strength and your courage, and let me tell you, everything that you are is more than enough, no matter who you are or what you are going through. So don’t be ashamed of any part of it. Your battles are what shape you into the strong and amazing person you are. And no matter what anyone tells you, it’s okay not to feel that you are strong and amazing every day. It’s okay not to believe it for a while. It’s okay to struggle. I assure you, you are not alone. Every single one of us goes through that at some point or another.I will always be here to listen to your story, and I will not ever judge you, or make you feel ashamed of what you are going through, or see you as anything less than the wonderful person you are. Because I know that at the end of the day, the one who has the courage to speak about it, is the one who is the bravest of them all.ListenersI want you all to remember that you guys are truly amazing. Spending time on here to help others during your free time shows dedication, compassion, and kindness on your part. Thank you so much for doing this. I know that all of our fellow members truly appreciate it! Got a question for me? Feel free to send me a message at any time and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Piney is not available as she is off living her life. Many apologies to all the people who I have talked to and since have stopped. I know how rude and selfish that is of me, but it's really for the best of everyone involved. As always, my love goes out to everyone.
