Melissa really listens to me when I have no one else to talk to. I don't know what I am lack of but it seems as she does. That's why I like talking to her, even when the messages come in a little late sometimes, they brighten me up every time.

Melissa has been caring and kind from the start. Whether I need advice or whether I just need to vent, she understands and supports me.
Thank you so much for helping me get a handle on my issues.
