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 30-Aug 6
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! My name's Allison and I'm hoping I can lend you an ear. I know how helpful it is to have someone to just talk to and I'm looking to make sure that's available for anyone who would like to chat, vent, or ask for advice.
| Teen Quality Mentor | Teen Transition Mentor |Active Listening 1 (Grading & Feedback)You can call me Amp!Greetings, I'm so glad that you've reached out for help. I know that life can seem like a complicated journey sometimes. During this time, it is not unusual to feel overwhelmed, confused or frustrated. My goal is to provide comfort and care for you as well as a safe and non-judgemental space to talk about everything and anything. Sometimes we just want someone to listen, and even that alone can be therapeutic. I am willing to listen to you and help you understand your thoughts and feelings better. You don't have to feel you are alone on the journey.
Hello! I enjoy supporting anyone that is struggling in their life. I LOVE cooking, hiking, camping, reading, movies and listening to music. I appreciate the little things in life. I've overcome a lot of struggles in my life and would like to help by listening to you. 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. I am Happy that you are here! :)

Relax. Take a nice, deep, long breath... and just let it all out. there you go. It's going to be alright. just focus on this for now and let everything else go. You just survived 12 seconds, all you have to do now is take life 12 seconds at a time. and whenever you just feel like you can't even take that; that's why I'll always be here, to help you through every obstacle that seems too large to defeat About Me!!!Hey there beautiful people <3. I'm Angel XDfrom the day I joined 7 cups I have always wanted to create a little corner where everyone can just forget about everything in life that kind of sucks to just take a moment to breathe. no matter who you are and what your little amazing quirks are, I want to help be a backbone to those who need someone to just be THERE! I've been through a lot and personally, I didn't have anyone to help through that. I believe that everyone is amazing and has the ability to do great things and most people myself included doubt their selves. You don’t need to have certain characteristics to be special, and you certainly don’t need a specific look to be beautiful <3. I just wanted to create a little space here on 7 cups where you can feel safe, confident, and loved! I will always be there for you, I may not solve your problems but I'll be right there with you so we could pass that obstacle together! always remember that no matter what your problem is it's never too big or too small, we all go through things and they all are problems that do matter.If I'm online then please feel free to start a chat if I'm not, leave me a message and I'll reply to you as soon as I can😊! I'm here for you through whatever, whenever. I will stand by you no matter what ❤️ggffffffjfdfjdkjfksjdfksdjfdshfsdhfsdnbfbsdjfbnsdjbfjdsbnfjdnskjfjsdfksdfjjdsf

I am a 37 year old single female. I have struggled with depression and anxiety most of my life. I have also struggled with addiction, self harm, bulimia, have lost my sweet daughter Who passed away at 16 months. I have multiple chronic illnesses and all of these things have taught me that we only have so much time on earth and I want to make the best of it. I've definitely been through my fair share of heart ache and pain and I can empathize with where you are coming from.
I enjoy writing, painting and horseback riding in my spare time. I'm an avid animal lover. I have 1 dog, 2 birds, 5 fish tanks and 2 horses. My horses names are Stardust and Starlight. They are both rescues. My dog is a certified service dog and a certified search and rescue dog. He is my companion and best friend. My family has just purchased a ranch where we will be retraining abused and neglected horses.
I also enjoy learning new languages and speak 7 languages fluently.
