Wow, I am so sorry to hear that you have a job that exposes you to so much EMF pollution. That is one problem I do not have, though I cannot go into malls at all, or any place with new items, due to a severe reaction to formaldehyde, including an abnormal heart rhythm that requires an ambulance. I hope someone with more experience in shielding from unwanted EMF will come along and help you out. I also wish you could get another job, since I find the more exposure you have, the worse a particular sensitivity gets, just like with common allergens. I am adding you to my prayer list right now.
Like you, I do not find this to be a gift. I practice and practice various techniques, but my inability to control my extremely sensitive responses to stressors has ruined my life, the illness has made me unable to work or drive, and I am mostly a hermit. I am lucky my husband has stuck with me, especially with the "double depression" I have now. My mom followed the same exact pattern and died very young. I cannot wait to go home also, and pray for it every night.
The only good thing about it is I now notice how many more mistakes I make when I don't have my abilities working like they used to. I see that I took being able to read people for granted. I am in a constant state of fear ranging to outright terror now, due to a voluntary and very long, slow withdrawal from an awful addictive drug they put me on for muscle spasms when I was first diagnosed with FMS. I decided it was destroying my brain and I was tired of being hooked on it. Recently, it was found to cause Alzheimer's so I started an almost two year process of weaning off. It is harder than heroin to get off of, let alone for someone as sick and old as I am. That fear has lowered my vibration to the point where I've lost most of my ability to read people, with some disastrous, very stressful and costly results, so I see now how being an empath has helped me in many ways I took for granted until they were gone. That is something to be thankful for to help balance out the other side.
I do think people with FMS or CFS are canaries in the coal mine, forecasting what all humans will suffer eventually if we don't clean up our act soon. We got it first because all of us have at least two defective detox genes in our methylation pathway (MTHFR labs can confirm this, and have done so for me), so we have a harder time getting rid of the toxic exposures from modern life.
FMS is not a new disease, just newly epidemic, due to modern society. There is an excellent article by Jeffrey Bland, PhD. called "Fibromyalgia: Stone Agers In The Fast Lane" which explains why our hyper vigilance was good throughout most of human history, and made us the most valued members of our tribes, but it is a disaster in modern life, where the stress response hardly ever turns off. That article can be found in Appendix A of Dr. Jacob Teitlebaum's first book on CFS/FMS called "From Fatigued To Fantastic". There is also at least one Indian tribe in the USA where those who get FMS are elevated to automatic Shaman level, and are revered, so they recognize the connection between FMS and empathic ability. That info is from Devin Starlanyl, M.D. in her big book on FMS, the name of which escapes me, but it's easy to find and was her first book on FMS.
I've written my own book here, so I will get on down the road.....
