About MeHey there I am Bear! I am so glad you have stumbled across my profile! I enjoy watching netflix, walking my dog, reading and meditating in my spare time. Self-Care is highly important to me to ensure a balance within my life and I highly recommend some form of self-care to everyone to include in their day - even if it is something as simple as making a cup of tea and taking a moment of reflection. cick me to find some free mindfulness audio guides My involvement 🐻 Self-Harm Recovery Support Room Leader 🐻 Self-Harm Recovery Forum Mentor 🐻Q&A Approval Team 🐻Chatroom Mentor 🐻Verifiers Team 🐻Quality Mentor 🐻Global Mod All the images on this page have hyperlinks related to the information above them.

***I am sorry I can't take any new chats at the moment***When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.- Harriet Beecher Stowe
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:
- July 11-14
- July 19-28
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,

"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.
