Hi everyone :) My name is Maddie. I love being a 7 cups listener and being able to help others every day! If you ever are having a hard day or just need to chat feel free to message me! I would love hearing from you.
Hello. I am here, because being here helps me. When I find myself capable enough to listen to someone and connect with someone, and as I help someone feel better, I feel a bliss in me. I am here for that bliss. Let us feel that bliss sometime, if we get lucky sometime. Even if not, I wish a good life and good times for anyone who comes across the profile and read this intro. : )
I have so many twins here, I will mention more and more as the time comes, mentioning one for now: the best flying twin @wisdomeyes
What is common among us? We have compassion in our heart for one another and for all. Wish we could be good for you, sometime. : )
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 Deutsch.Urgency 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 5 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.
Welcome to 7cups! Applaud yourself for reaching out. I hope to make your day better.I'm from Hong Kong and was educated in the UK as well so I understand student stress in both Asian and Western education and racism. I have depression and Asperger's. These are only labels that help categorise us but do not define who we are.Disclaimer: I'm the most confident with Student Life, Loneliness and Self-Esteem but open to talk about anything that I'm trained on (see Badges). I won't take chats on Domestic Violence, I'd refer you to a different listener for that. I’m available 10pm - 11am EST. Chats are for 30 minutes to an hour. If you need more support after this time you can message again for our next session or use the "Browse Listeners" tab. For scheduled chats message me and I’ll do my best to accommodate. Highly recommend my listener twins @dbubblepuff and @Alpacaking 💖💖

"DON'T QUIT "
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, when the road your trudging seems
all uphill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but
you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Hey! I'm so glad you're here, I'm not an expertise in anything just want to help someone in any way I can, because sometimes we just need someone to talk to.
I'm rarely online so If I'm not around just leave a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can or set a time.....
keep smiling :)

My name is Mel and I am a verified intermediate listener that suffers from Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, Anxiety, Somatic Symptom Disorder, and a survivor of sexual abuse. I have dealt with years of severe depression cycles where I laid in bed for months at a time in pain and feeling lonely and hopeless and felt like a huge burden to my family. I have had many years of treatment and therapy and group therapy, thank goodness for some great peer support and my own therapist, I have worked through my issues, and I am finally in a great spot in my life, I want to give back to my community (mental health) in hopes of maybe helping someone by listening and offering my unconditional support. I have 3 handsome grown sons. I have been married for 25 years to a VERY patient and understanding man and I have a listener twin here at 7 cups, her name is Paula02. I decided to go back to college since my children are grown to pursue my Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree. I want to become a Therapist or an Addiction Counselor. I am here to listen and support you judgement free through several issues; loneliness, depression, anxiety, self-harm, sexual assault, and bipolar disorder. My preferences are to talk to those suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, Sexual Assault victims and Domestic Violence Victims.

Have a wonderful day <3<3 "Alot of people say that you can't just smile away depression. They are right, but some of it is actually wanting to get better and DOING something to get better.
