I am new to this site as of a few hours. I have been Empathic my entire life and have told NO ONE!! I have been self medicating with alcohol for the last 2 yrs so I dont have to deal with this. I have chronic pain issues,severe depression, anxiety among other things. You already know them all. I am 50 and tired of denying all this. My grandmother, great grandmother, and my eldest son are Empathic. I dont want his to suffer as I have. Its so interesting to read all the questions and comments. I feel like I am reading the story of my life. I have beent he caretaker/counselor of the world my entire life! I have a sister who is a very unhappy person. She had an affair 15 yrs ago and I begged her not to tell me. As the worlds counselor she told me. I couldnt hold this secret/emotion. i confided in someone who I thought I could trust. The entire world found out. I cant get past what I did. It has severely effected my life for 15 years. I now realize it is all her negative energy that I continue to harbor. She has emotionally hurt me multiple times in my life. I can apologize a million times but why can she not. Why do I not expect that from her? How do I get past this. Way to much for me to handle. It is in my mind constantly. How could I have hurt someone so bad. Am I crazy or what. Therapists tell me just leave it in the past why can I not? Ok I will stop now. I welcome any advice!!
