I was pleased to find this forum when searching for something similar. I actually work as a therapist but wanted to be part of an online community where I can interact with others who do not judge mental health, understand it, and/or are in need of support/guidance.

I hope to be able to share some of my own stressors, be able to relate to others experiences, and if desired, help those that are feeling stuck or just need support/validation. I have always had a very big heart & lived with a high degree of empathy. It was only in the past couple years, that I have learned how too much empathy can lead to a lot of stress in life. This is something that I have personally been trying to battle & improve upon. Unfortunately, I have had to learn the hard way.

Although I work as a therapist, I feel it is crucial to be able to put yourself into vulnerable positions. I also have found in my practice how beneficial it has been for some clients to see that I too have to deal with stress, & have had to battle through some very difficult times. I am here to receive support & validation like many of you, but I also am here to help others who may not be able to afford mental health services if anyone ever needs any clarity, guidance, or anything else.

More than anything, I look forward to being part of a community that is open-minded and isn't quick to judge and/or criticize like some are in today's society.

I am someone who loves to interact with people who are non-judgmental, kind, & modest. I am a HUGE supporter of diversity, equality, & civil rights. In regards to interests, I have a strong passion for nature & wildlife. I am also a bigtime sports guy, both playing sports and watching. I am an avid golfer, and love to play basketball, and fly fish.

So HELLO Everybody!!

Empathy can sometimes feel like a burden, when you feel too much. Great of you to still be out here willing to provide guidance to those in need. Welcome :)

Hi Nature143
Welcome. How did you feel role playing different conditions on your way to qualification? At least a few hours pretending to have different MH conditions?
Do you have a new paper due?
If not l am very sorry, l feel empathy too.
