Oh I wanted to pm you ;_;I'm a 26-year-old male from England; with the accent to prove it; fighting his way through recovery to avoid CTB. I've suffered a few setbacks recently, but I'm feeling stronger than before and I now feel as though I've got enough strength to share with someone else who is also on their recovery journey.
What can I say about me other than that I'm an oddball? I work in the film industry and part-time as a hypnotherapist specialising in the treatment of somatoform disorders; and functional nausea and vomiting. I'm a good listener and a very unjudgemental person; my clients are often people who have been labelled as attention seekers or lost-causes - all too often those are labels given out by bombastic therapists who rigidly fail to connect and thus 'blame the patient' to spare their own ego. So I think of myself as a good problem-solver, I'm willing to listen and provide a different perspective on things to help someone on their journey to recovery.
My hobbies are equally eccentric. I'm currently studying dreams and consciousness and have a mini sleep lab set-up conducting my own research. My friends quite frequently ask me to interpret their dreams for them and I've conducted nightmare therapy before, so if you're interested in any of that you might find it hard to shut me up. I love all different kinds of music and art - I'm rubbish at drawing (as you can see from my avatar) but I still try...
It would be really nice to have someone to chat with regularly about anything suicidal or non-suicidal, someone to joke with about the funny things that happen in our day; to get excited about our progress and achievements and remind one another of our strengths when we are feeling weak. Honestly, I will talk to just about anyone who can put up with me, but if there's anyone here in the UK, that's a bonus.
So if you haven't been completely bored out of your mind reading this post then firstly, wow; you have the patience of a saint! Secondly, feel free to send me a PM and perhaps we'll be a good fit for recovery partners; you never know, it could lead to us both getting a new friend for life :)
