Hello!!! I am glad you found me on 7 cup. I am trained active listener and I like to support people struggling with anxiety, bullying, depression, eating disorder, family stress, general mental illness, loneliness, managing emotions, mens and womens issues, panic attacks, self esteem, self harm, sleeping well, social anxiety, and work stress. I enjoy swimming, camping, dancing, and karate. I've overcome a lot in life and would like to help by listening to you. if I am online please feel free to start a chat. if Im offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time connect. Glad you are here!!
1) My response times are slow. Even when I am working on making them faster, please do not talk with me if you won't accept delays.
2) I help myself when I try to help you.
3) Today I found out that "ThankYouForLettingMeTryingToHelp" should be instead "ThankYouForLettingMeTryToHelp". It seems first one is grammarly incorrect in English. I am sorry for my mistake. Thank you for pointing it out, @Nada and @DestroyingAngel (8/August/2019).
4) Accepting Long Term Members!!
Hi, I'm a good listener and have been through a lot of problems myself. I've dealt with social anxiety, depression and body image issues, so I know what it's like to struggle with life's difficulties and I would like to help you as best I can. I will talk to you, no matter your age, gender, sexuality or subject matter. If you want a one-off chat or long term support, that's fine by me. I am also here if you need a general chat. Not everyone has someone they can turn too. I'm non-judgemental and a friendly ear if you need it.

I imagine this is my opportunity to tell you a wee bit about me.
I have a sincere dedication to volunteering my non-structured time to 7 cups.
I have a strong educational background on which to draw from (2 advanced degrees in Psychology and 1 in Business) as well as a life full of rich experiences.
I'm happy to listen and happy to help. All that I ask is that you come willing to invest in yourself, as much as I am willing to invest in you.

MESSAGES FROM THE BIRD HOUSE
(This is just OUR fun spot and may change often...either something that was on the mind of Phoenix or an idea from one of my lovely baby birds ((aka my guests, and members)). Yes, YOU! You are my 7 cups family! Swoop on in, we all learn from one another. If you have a quote, a thought, or a song you would like listed here, let me know)!
Try to sing a little, play a little, and dance a little every day! Remember to love your inner child.
Everything you ever needed to know, you learned in the sandbox

The best of friendships are born from respect. Over time, comes a deep sense of caring, trust, gratitude and love. Octopus Twinnie: @ ItsDev The true Octopus master of multi-tasking. The tried and true and even when the chips are down. They do it all along with a big heart, compassion and a smile. (gosh, that's a lot of arms Dev, how do you do it?) Magical Twinnie: @Alpacaking With wand in hand the Magical twinnie will transform any room and any interaction bringing joy to others. They sprinkle fairy dust as well with knowledge, help and huggles. (got that one right "blaby")Half Nerd Twinnie: @VickyP Never underestimate the power of the half nerd twinnie. Smart, funny, the quintessential onion with so many layers. Quick to rise to the occasion and help others in need. (you might be an onion, but you'll always be my "hi Sausage")
It's been a privilege to stand in the light of all three of you and bask in your glow! *hugs*
ONLY TAKING CHATS WITHIN MY TOPICS. IF POSSIBLE PLEASE READ MY PROFILE BEFORE SENDING A PERSONAL REQUEST. If you're in a too bad condition at least make sure you want to talk about something within my areas of expertise.Ich spreche auch deutschIk spreek ook nederlandsJeg snakker litt norsk (Bokmål)Hablo un poco de españolUrgency first: If you are facing an acute situation like panic attack, flare up or urgent urge you don't need to read the rest of the text and can just drop me a request. I'll take care of you asap. If you're not in a situation like that please read on to see if I am the right Listener for you. If yes you're very welcome to contact me but you may have to wait a bit incase I am occupied with an urgent case, specially if my status is set to busy (orange).Hello and welcome to 7cups. I'm Nadine from Germany, 22 years old and glad you read this. I had and still have to struggle with the things I offer support with and that's why I think I can help you with it. I understand you well and maybe I have suggestions, techniques or skills to help you. My top areas are living with chronic pain or disability, self-harm and panic attacks. I also have non-epileptic (dissociative) seizures which are quite much under control by now and I'd like to exchange experience about this anytime.In the following I will describe myself as a Listener and explain in what case I am the right one for you. It does not mean that I don't welcome other people. I just don't want to waste your time and want to make it easy for you to find a suitable Listener. If you select me as your Listener and I think there is a chance that I might be able to help then I will surely try my best to do so. Yet I do not take chats with any kind of sexual content, not from Members and Guests, nor from Listeners. If you message me with that I will tell you to leave and if you don't do so I might not have another opportunity than blocking you.If I was to describe myself as a listener I would say I'm mostly supportive, reassuring and encouraging. But despite all my empathy and understanding I still tend to be somewhat challenging. If you are looking for someone to pity you or just an empty space to vent to you might be better off with another listener. I am the right one if you are ready to fight in order to make a change for yourself. I can assure that you have my greatest support if you are willing to work with me and I will be here to guide you through whatever struggle you may face. So let us unite our strengths and try to pull you out of your misery. Please understand that it may take a lot of effort, time and patience before there will be any significant change for you but I can assure you that it will be all worth it in the end. However my favorite saying that I took from the saw movies which I really enjoy (don't worry ,I'm not a creep) is "CHERISH YOUR LIFE" and I hope i can help you to do that too along the way.Send me a personal request by chatting to me or leaving me a message if:
- you want to learn strategies to live with chronic pain, especially such that gets worse in flare ups (1)
- you want to manage daily life better with a disability (2)
- you want to stop self-harm (3)
- you want to cope better with panic attacks and possibly get rid of them (4)
- you want to talk about non-epileptic (dissociative/conversion /PNES ) seizures and eventually defeat them (5)- you want to talk about a trauma and /or any kind of dissociation, including DID (6)If you send a personal request please start the chat with a code number from 1 to 6 to show you have read this. I only take requests about these topics, thanks for understanding.I do provide long term support as well! Let me know straight away if you wish that.
If I am offline you can drop me a message still and I will get in touch when I see it.You should always try and choose a topic even for general requests as long as the thing you want to talk about matches any. This increases your chances to get connected to a suitable listener as quick as possible.
As well if you are in condition for this you should always try and find some time to leave a detailed and honest rating and review after each chat with a listener. It's not only that you can give something back to a helpful listener with a good one but mainly that you can help other members to find the suitable listener for them. It should roughly include the topic you talked about, what was good or bad about the chat and if you would recommend the listener to others struggling with the same. Don't worry, you stay anonymous and also you don't have to do it if you're not comfortable.If you actually read everything: Thanks for your patience and attention, you're extra special :-p
