I am a 24 year old Canadian college student who originally found this website while looking for someone to talk to. I found that help and want to give back. I am by no means an expert in anything, but I will do my best to help.
Hey there lovely! My name is Brooke and I’m here to help you through your rough time! I specialize in trauma, anxiety and disability chats!! In my free time I am usually on here, writing, baking or playing video games but most of the time you can find a makeup brush in my hand! I’m super excited for you to reach out and if I am offline feel free to message me to set up a time to meet up!
Community roles!!!im a Doorkeeper!Forum supporter for TSEBI and trauma!And global mod!
One of the first things I ever loved was books, I think. It's something that's remained constant about me throughout the years. My favourite author at the moment's Marie Lu, and here's a quote of hers: Every locked door has a key. Every problem has a solution.
Stories just attract me, I suppose. In much the same way, people do as well. It fascinates me that everyone's so unique, that each possesses a story that's unlike any other. And thus I'm always willing to hear your story, no matter what it is! When I read, I get so caught up in the story that my thoughts and feelings are secondary to what the character's thinking and feeling. I believe - and hope! - that I listen in that way too.
Regardless of your story, you're not a waste of my time, I promise. If you're struggling, I'm really sorry, and I hope that I'll be able to support you. If you've got something you'd like to rant about, then you may think of our chat as a safe space for you, and vent all you'd like. And though these are not the only emotions, I hope my point manages to get across - that no matter who you are or how you're feeling, I'll do my best to be here for you, because you're worth it.
Some things I've dealt with include anxiety, bullying, depression, eating disorders, stress, forgiveness, loneliness and self-harm. I'm a teenager, girl, sister, student and daughter, not necessarily in that order! That being said I'm willing to listen to you even if you're not going through anything that falls under the topics I've mentioned - but if you'd prefer to find someone else, that's okay too. You can do so here.

Along with Mel, I lead the TOZ subcommunity! You can message me if you're interested in joining, or if you have any questions - I'd be glad to bring you on board.
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,
Hey I am a verified listener ^^. The world is a big place filled with wonderful people. I have yet to meet a person who does not have a story to tell.
Ive found that people are afraid of themselves, their own reality and their feelings most of all. Most People only talk about how great love is, but that's bs because love can hurt sometimes and feelings can be disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous but How can they deal with love if they're afraid to feel?
Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain but they dont realize that they end up doing the wrong thing. Pain isint something to be afraid of...It should be something for you to carry because pain breeds empathy. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you; Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them all you are doing is letting society destroy your reality. So stand up and feel your pain.
Triplets with the incredible @ChassyMom and @VinylFlyTwinnies with the amazing @ItsDev and @LeetheUnicorn
