I am 55. Married. Female. Mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother(via step-children). I am a survivor of childhood physical, emotional and sexual abuse as well as some neglect. I became a nurse after many years of dreaming of doing just that. I retired many years ago and I'm no longer licensed or qualified to offer any sort of official advice. That's what I hope you have doctors to assist you with. I find that reaching out and talking about my issues has helped me over the years. I hope to provide an accepting and supportive ear now. Feel free to reach out to me to discuss most anything. I can, and have been known to, say "no" if I feel a question goes too far.

Hi, I am Zoe and I am a psychology student. I love helping others and used to volunteer at a crisis support phone line I found it really rewarding but also demanding and want to help other in the best way I can when I am available. I also work with kids with disabilities and help support them achieve their goals. :)
Hello, my name is Emanuel. I’m currently working as a ABA therapist for kids with autism and studying a Bachelor of Psychology. The reason I volunteer on this site is because i know how important connection is when you’re going through bad times. My parents have suffered from various mental illnesses, and as a kid i suffered from anxiety and depression. Despite getting through them, i felt very alone during these periods so if i could just help one person on this platform i would consider my job done. On a much lighter note, i’m a massive fan of travelling, checking out nature, and watching drama-filled TV shows and movies. If you would like to connect with me, please send me a message, would love to hear from you.
