Â NOTE: I am unable to take chat requests as I cannot respond in a timely manner. To find a listener click theÂ Browse Listeners. Listeners indicate if they are taking on new chats in their profile. The green dot indicates they are currently online. For urgent needs please join the general queue and the first available listener will connect.(This is my bird. His name is Tuna, and he is a Jr. Community Manager.)Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.- Max Ehrmann, âDesiderataâÂ
New job at work has me traveling more, plus life events mean that I'll be away a bit more over time.Â I'll still try to respond to messages if possible, but will be unavailable for live chats and more delayed in responses from:
- May 9
- May 16
- May 20-May 27
- May 30-June 2
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.
Â 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.Â 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! Please message another listener for a live session! Thank you for understanding <3Thanks for stumbling into my profile :) It's very nice to see you! I'm Mel and I'm a young girl from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a college student majoring in physics. In the future I would love to work in a laboratory studyingÂ neuroscience andÂ illnesses regarding the human brain!Â I work as a support teacher for young kids mostly. I love teaching and explaining things - I think everybody deserves their chance at understanding a difficult matter, even if they need more time for it than someone else would.Â
I'm not much of a talker as a listener. I feel like it's very important that every single person out there has someone to rely on and be there for them. I want you to feel like you can tell me anything on your mind, feel heard, understood and never judged. That's what I aim for. I know I can't change your life nor magically solve your problems (Although I would really like to be able to do that) but I do can promise to be here, as much as possible and as much as you need. I'm your friend and I'll always care about you. I deal my own battles every day and I know that talking helps. You are never alone here.
I would like to be a writer someday, because books mean a lot to me. Everything I want is what I write to be special for someone, if I could make at least one (only one) person feel something by something I wrote, I would already feel realized. Writing has always come naturally to me. It's who I am. As a kid, I would always grab a pencil and write, instead of drawing. I would always make stories up in my mind to tell other people. I would always write too much, speak too much, and take too longÂ to tell an anecdote. I was born a storyteller. At the moment, I just do it for fun and for myself or my closest ones.Anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to message me and ask, I'm pretty much an open book! and will love to get to know eachother more.Â Right now I have a very tight schedule, and I get aroun 5-10 new chats daily. Therefor my status is mostly offline because I can't take many more chats. I'm mainly working with scheduled chats only. If you need immediate help, I would recommend reaching to someone in the browse listeners page! My responses can take 2-3Â days - but I'm always listening!
