Welcome Pet, your post sounds like we have a lot in common. Especially the friendly with no friends. I think is is due to our intense vibrational energy field. I have also noticed that "chit chat" doesn't come easy for me, I'd rather talk on a deeper level, which makes most people uncomfortable.

Hi there! I was also in healthcare as a nursing assistant for 3 years at a nyrsing came to be awful. I never understood why i was always emotionally drained, until i look back now. The way i see it is when your that sick and uncomfortable, you are an open book. No walls or barriers to put up around your emotions. So empaths are going to pick up everything in those types of setti gs. I got to the point i just couldnt do it anymore. I was drained, allthe while i had no idea that empath life was even for real. I, too, spent most of my life repressing these odd things that hsppen to me. I also dont have many friends, and tend to choos more closed off people, although I am a very friendly person, i always keep peopke at an arm's distance. This community is so great and helpful. I hope you enjoy it as much as i do!

I am also new to the forum and am an ex-nurse thinking about going back into nursing after a long break. I always found that I was overwhelmed and stressed at work but couldnt quite work out why.

I wonder if now I am aware that I am an empath I may be able to go back into it but will need to learn how to defend myself. In a busy ward or nursing environment I wonder how much energy and concentration I will have spare in order to maintain my defences though.

I too struggle with friendships: I have a few good friends but struggle to make new friends as I cant do the small talk and like to shield myself.
