New and Curious


Empath

Hello!

I have been diagnosed with major depression and anxiety, but it wasn't until I met my current therapist that it all started making sense. Like you I thought everyone else experienced life this way, and I still have trouble believing they don't! I am so grateful that I now have someone that sees me for who I am and can guide me through this (at least somewhat- she's not an empath (at least not that she's told me about!) but at least she doesn't think I'm crazy!).

How great is it to be understood???

I am really starting to believe that most of my depression is due to the onslaught of emotions from other people. The anxiety I still kind of own ;)

I do find that taking really good care of myself (lots of sleep, sun, and time to myself) makes a huge difference. I also take a few supplements that help as well.

Nice to meet you!

Cats and Emapths?


Empath

I would have to agree =D I'm not sure if I know why, maybe because cats feel much more intelligent and almost human like, while dogs are way too willing to please and simple. I have three myself and I really feel as though they pick up on my emotions and "get me". Call me crazy!
