Am i emphatic or crazy ? confused!


Empath

@shevone I totally agree with@ women who..It's difficult at times even to know who you picked up.I can pick up even if the person isn't near me.We can be so sensitive that even if you pass by a stranger you may pick up from them.Anyway if I'm feeling ok and then out of nowhere, I'm sad that's one way I know it's not me..At times I feel this is a curse..I always pick up the negative,I don't recall being down and then wham happy!😁I feel at times I should just sit in the Epsom salt baths all day ,but if anything it's also a exfoliated and helps my body feel good...I'm in the city and don't have much nature around me...Now I wear gem stones and I was just drawn to them.i sold all my gold when it went up to 1900 dollars an ounce..I have experienced different ways of picking up people's emotions.I was at a wedding and I had to leave.I started crying where the tears were just pouring out,but I went to the ladies room felt fine and went back into the wedding and it started all o ER again.Dud thus 4 times and I said to my husband let's go ..I was fine once out of the room..This wedding when I walked into the room was just beautiful..These were tears to me of being overwhelmed by the beauty and I guess everyone felt like I did,lol...When these experiences started there wasn't a name called Empath that I knew of..I found out about being an Empath only 5 yrs ago,although where I grew up and still live this is normal for many.Who interprets dreams,etc....😁❤️

Selfish people or what ??


Empath

When I was young I thought everyone was like us! Honest,don't lie,hahaaa Lie! I can't get over how lying is so natural to people! I hate liars! Liars were always out of my life fast!..my oldest brother said I was a seeker of the truth! And he was right! If something is true,so be it but lie about something being true,oh no! @ loconnono, it must have taken 3 buildings to fall on me before I realized that the people who asked me questions and I gave my thoughts,really didn't want them..all they wanted even though they said they wanted change but all they wanted was for me to listen and especially at a younger age,I wanted to fix everything for everyone and they didn't want it!  Once I realized that,I just listened and gave no answers....and people will try to manipulate us through fear or guilt that has been said...I have a friend who I grew up with but a few yrs back I was just honest and said don't try to manipulate me with guilt please because it pushes me away from you,not closer and it's great now......Yes, we must put ourselves first in order to be good to ourselves or others...oh,and some people I can see it it in their face when I say that and add it's not selfish to take care of yourself as in taking care of a sick person,you are not well who is going to do it!  I remember when my energy went right through the phone and left me exhausted! And I havnt been a doormat in a long time!  But Iv noticed when people have taken what they needed from you,and need nothing more they throw you away like a piece of garbage!    This has happened to me...but I learned!

exclusivity in a group & how that affects an empath, insight please?


Empath

CONGRATUALATIONS ON YOUR SOBRIETY @strugglebunny!😀❤️And I can relate to so many comments on here!  I'm lucky that for some reason I just did whatever I felt like,and  not trying to fit in anywhere,but I did,lol!  I was always a free spirit!...as far as judging,OMG,who knows or cares what ppl thought about me meaning at 17 having fur coats,clothes galore and people thinking I have a sugar daddy! Lmao....when people were gathered together in the summer in front of each other's houses,I would say People it's called WORKING!   The only people I care about are my close and True friends of how they feel meaning I would never want to hurt them,and if I did through a misunderstanding that's what I want to know because they matter!  Iv been truly blessed! People are lucky to have one true friend,I have 5,and were there for me at the worst time of my life about 5 years ago..They all were there for me! It was truly overwhelming with gratitude!   Unlike my family,all 2 of them..I told my story on here awhile back,looong story but without these friends I don't know what would have happened because One of the members of my family is a Catholic Priest I call the Anti Christ and I never saw it coming....He took over 200,000 from me! Another story!  The worse was the mental and verbal abuse!  Just in case anyone is wondering Priests do not have to take the vow of poverty! Well he didn't because he is a diocesan priest....In the Archdiocese of Chicago but ran to Palm Springs,Ca...only Priests that belong to orders like Jesuits,Franciscans ,ect do and have to live amongst each other..Not that anyone cares but the Anti Christ non of these ever applied to him...Good place to join if you never want to work!....

Body Exhaustion


Empath

@loconono. I had this connection with my brother who was 10 years older than me who is now deceased!  I would take a step and my back would go out,he came home with the exact same pain! I was like WoW....He thought I was making fun of him,I said no and when his pain lessened so did mine and left when his left which was that evening!  All he said to me at that time, was that he said when that happens I really need you!  And if I was laying in bed going to sleep and feeling melancholy,I got up and asked him to please stop so I could sleep!  I couldn't disconnect from him,and I really didn't want to!  But it wasn't an everyday occurance with him,he lived with me and my husband for 3 years,then moved out...He moved, and died shortly after...It was no coincidence he lived with us.i got to know him even better because he was 10 years older....I'm grateful for that! After he died,I didn't want to know anything about anyone!  We weren't even twins,I could only imagine!  When I asked my brother are you feeling this or that? He would answer truthfully where on the other hand I would ask my husband, but he would lie and I knew he was lying so I don't even know why I asked him,lol

When the world feels against you


Empath

Well I'm here I think just to share what a triple whammy is doing to me!  I was hit so fast with multiple people's emotions and pain....one is my daughter who is not living close to me! She was injured....Then 2 other people ,with their emotions and pain...I was hit by a World wind! It was bam,ban,bam.....The last one I felt,actually made me feel like I actually withered down like cartoon characters do! I went right to sleep!  Now it has stopped.phew! I'm finally getting on my feet! Iv grounded,epsom salt,I think I should just sit in one everyday,all day lol my gems,ect....breathing techniques ,ect!  Plus I have my own personal emotions and pain!  I hope this episode is over...I don't know what else to call it..it wiped me out! But rest brought me back,I'm to old for this!  And surprisingly I was able to figure out what went to Who!   I feel I was getting signals from these people in distress!  And I could stay secluded,it doesn't matter,it still happens....So now hopefully this to shall pass,right now!👏 I turned down the volume also,to off!  But  because I want to know what is going on, unconsciously I do this to myself I believe.....I need to mind my bussiness,lol.....I believe for me,this is the first time with this many people!

Questioning The Empath-Narcissist Connection


Empath

@hop-daddy His relationship with my mother was odd to me,although she was always in his life with church funds,etc...But many times she was hurt emotionally from him and would tell me...One time he told her this is my house and blah blah,he was living upstairs from me so I walked into my apt to find my mother sobbing on the couch from what he said! I would never say that to my mother,plus my mother was a great women and mother ...She would call him up and say the tub was clogged and he would tell her,call a plumber! And it goes on...One day I said you treated your own mother,he interrupted and said don't go there with mother! Mother? He never called her that,but the conversation went elsewhere but he knew I had his number!....No matter between me and my mother he was always to busy,Lies..I said one day you are the busiest person in the world a, I still didn't connect  everything!..

Questioning The Empath-Narcissist Connection


Empath

I had 2 brothers and the complete opposite of interacting with me as a child and as adult...We were all 5 yrs apart...The good brother in fact died on this day,36yrs ago..he was 10 yrs older..He introduced the theatre to me,took me as a young kid to the circus,invited me to all his parties,which were massive lol,Had my 21st birthday party,and so on....The Middle one you would think we would have had a similar relationship, but he was always trying to get rid of me as in going to the same dances and interacting with his friends and at 10 I looked 15 and socialized great with his friends..I always blew it off thinking who wants their younger sister with them? But many ppl I know didn't have this problem with siblings,in fact they would look out for them..Well the middle one who became a priest is The narcicists and never knew how much he lied and is an evil person to me anyway...His actions are evil and this all surfaced 5 yrs ago!  I kept saying,where did he come from? Myself and the oldest we are cut from the same cloth!  Well I have had my experiences and didn't know it had a name,Empath!  Now knowing what I know now,I wished I knew way back when...lt all makes more sense of his actions toward me..Although until 5 yrs ago he never really let on just how much he didn't want me around...If I didn't have the older brother I probably would think the relationship with the middle one was normal because of the age difference...With him being a Catholic Priest one would think he would have empathy..He has no empathy,in fact to me he learned how to be empathetic ..Another lie about him..He had 0 empath skills,but he was great as an actor! ..And even as far as someone being a tarot reader,etc he never said,oh that's against our religion,although I said before where I grew up this was normal!....No one in my family was like him,not even close...He is a lying no good Anti Christ rat bastard and I'm being nice.... so for me the narcicists had and still has - 0 empathy!

@angelThis is is the first time I have heard of Indigo Children...Looked it up and as far as gifts,they sound to me as empaths'....What is the difference?  Also when reading about them that they were born in the last 10 yrs ago they are to me described as Milleniums..i.e.,self entitlement,etc....I happen to have a millenium ! Milleniums are born from 1982-2000....

 @ tigerlilly,I think what everyone has shared here is such great info.......I'm at a point in my life, I stay away from over thinking,especially when thee is no answer!😜 We do meet people for a reason,I don't believe in coincidences ,and yrs later it comes out why I met them,i.e.,I met a couple on a cruise,I knew the husband but just met his wife...We hit it off great!  Through her she gave me the name if a urologist that did vasectomy reversals after my Dr said Forgetaboutit! Well it was performed and I had a beautiful son born! Here is the best to me out of this,My sister in law had a urologist in the same office at the same time I was seeking out this procedure!  It took meeting a friend on a cruise to guide me there!  Iv also met people 2 who were friends in fact...These two girls couldn't have been nicer...after awhile my gut said ,break away from them for no reason I could make sense of at that time, and couldn't up until now! The other day someone said to me after I told the story, shed some light on this and said,you would have been under their control! That makes sense...This was 34 yrs ago when I experienced breaking away from someone for no reason other than my gut!

@calmister At that time I didn't know it was my guide!  I'm finding out the terminologies late in life!  Just like Empath! 40 yrs ago I was interested in the esoteric world,but the name Empath was never used!  I wonder if it was used back then! I know empaths have been since the beginning of time, But the term Empath!

@calmidwester When this thought went through my mind I said why am I thinking this? I never thought anything was wrong..I asked lol and he said No..well fast forward a month and my husband was in rehab for alcoholism! I said maybe that's what it was! Well a few nights later I had a dream, well actually I woke up and had a bed mattress coming toward me, and I was Wow, and it dissapeared..Then I went by my friends grandmother to interpret the dream.She said that's someone wanting to be in another bed! Well I went to that hospital and for 3 hrs told him if you admit it or not ,I know you are cheating!  That's all I needed...Now some people need a visual...I don't....Well he fessed up 3 hrs later because he said even though the priest and the Dr said don't say anything, I knew if you found out,he knew I knew, this marriage is over,and he was right!  Sometimes you just know!   Always go with the gut! I always didn't because I dismissed it thinking there isn't anything wrong,or I didn't want to know it!❤

@hip-hopThank You so much from the bottom of my heart for all of your time with me,for I truly appreciate it!  You are so right about letting the anger go...What you hear from me now, is much less for I have been working on that for a long time! And yes I must forget..It's been a long 5 yrs getting to where I am now! But I survived, and will continue to survive.....and with you responding to me ,helped me to move further and I thank you!😀❤as far as legal with the sales of my buildings ,I quick claimed them to him after my divorce when my husband wasn't paying his part and the collectors came after me,and I did that to avoid liens and being who I am, didn't think it was fair to the Anti Christ to have liens because of me on the properties! In hindsight I should have let them pile up!...The only thing I can do is report him to the IRS for fraud for claiming me and my son on his taxes..He never supported him or me!.....My daughter was handling this in between her schedule but now that she will be deployed she can't carry it out....When I finally got away from the Anti's control and moved into this apartment,my friend said maybe now you should let everything just be, your here and forget about getting back at him...I have thought about it especially that my daughter can no longer be my advocate..I don't want to go backwards and I may just let it be and forget it!t...........As far as the people of the Catholic Church that don't go,lol are my friends that helped me financially, moved me ,did everything they could! I'm blessed with great friends around me! People are lucky if they have one!  As far as the institution of the Catholic Church they really think they are above all! When younger and I had my experiences I never knew it had the name empath!  But being who I am, I could care less what that institution had to say about me as you said,Satanic,mentally ill.,I truly could care less! I think living in the city rather than the suburbs the church played a different role in my life meaning we didn't gather there to socialize with our community, or look to it for community functions....and hypocritical,absolutely!...The Catholic Institution never told me anyway about the meditation that the priests did,the charismatic group I never knew were Catholic...I believe in the power of prayer,but I'm not looking for to be in a group...I'm in the middle of the road..oh and slain in the spirit and putting hand over people for healing..I believe Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and I would never allow any institution to come between me and my God ! They are nothing! It's sad many lost faith in Our Lord because of these priests and actions of the church..I'm a straight shooter..And to me,if all the churches were gone,Il still pray and have my faith!

@hop-daddy You stated the church is against empaths,etc ..My whole area growing up were just about all Catholic.and we could care less!  Against birth control,excommunicated if divorce,all bullshit, we never even entertained these wacko man made laws,and I was like this from a kid! No meat on Friday,I hated fish,peanut butter and jelly,etc,my mother made me what I wanted ,lol....The one positive thing I can think of for the Catholic Church finally recognizing these sickM..... is that they are nobody but a man..Some followers felt like idk they were above us,actually at times to me worshiped these men, I would say, you are worshiping the wrong person, It's God to worship!  Well I always said what I meant

A Child Empath, does anyone have one that became apath?


Empath

Thank you so much at @hop-daddy for taking your time to read my story..And yes you are right it's complex..You have pointed out what needs to be done to go forward,plus about my son!  Then also my brother aks Anti Christ....My son never knew I was a empath, no one knew,including me until I saw the word empath! But of course all my experiences I just said intuition...I said all this started when my son got married..Il fast forward to the grandchildren,When the first was born,My son said Mom I need you to cover the lapse time when his wife went back to work..I said Sure! Then the baby was in the hospital an extra day and my son said Mom will you alternate with me to bring her back and forth for his feeding? I said Sure! Well everything he asked me to do,never happened...His mother- in -law,and wife I guess didn't like it!  That was the beginning of the end.......RELIGION..He was raised Catholic meaning he received some sacraments ..we never went to church every Sunday,plus he said he is agnostic...He loved looking and reading about others..Buddhism, I know it's not a religion but he liked it,and so did I because it's about being down the middle of the road to me!.He took many martial arts,in fact one day we went together for Zen,we enjoyed it..The only time the Church came involved is when the Anti Christ did the Baptisms..Now, I understand what you mean about my son and the Church because of the Anti! Well the Anti moved to Palm Springs ASAP after I moved out..He had a time line this rotten no good rat bastard....As far as Anti, the best thing was for me getting out of his Control which I said was verbally and emotionally abusive...That happened 7 mos ago, and Thank You Lord! I was finally able to close that door behind me and he is nothing to mez,   My son, I have forgiven in fact when I was listening to music that we both liked ,I was crying all day and night...The next day I was compelled to call him and I knew he wouldn't pick up the phone! My message was that I miss you..and I'm not calling to be in your life,as you know I havnt shown up anywhere, but you are my son and I love you!...That for me was cutting the cord...As far as the Anti taking him under his wing,my son hid behind him so he wouldn't have to face me! The Anti and the wife were causing enough trouble to me! Plus the Anti had the MONEY!...Just FYI,The Anti had his apt upstairs from me in the building,plus where he was Pastor was 20 blocks away,meaning he was always around! But only for an hour and dissapeared........Now I'm going back to the beginning of my story when my son came down stairs and said Mom we can talk over a cup of coffee,but it's better if there is a 3rd Party...He said you know Mom you can be intimidating.I said What? How? I'm obnoxious? He said no,but you know when you are in the room,I dais well what do you want from me? And then he made a joke your mother should have named you Loretta because there was the Loretta Young Show and she came through the door,lol with a flowing dress on....This is his Mother in law saying that...And another interesting thing I feel is that we agreed to go to therapy, when the time came about 2 mos later because We were on a waiting list...He said I can't I'm emotionally drained...Well him being drained wasn't from me,I left alone until therapy..So who drained him? Going back to being an empath, My son knew I was intuitive ,Il call it,and the Anti I never really said to much..Maybe some experiences from yrs ago..But I don't know if he really knew the depth of it only because where I grew up and still live,this was normal! 😂 It really was..If I had a dream,I'd go by my friends grandmother because she was great at interpretation..Who read cards, even regular decks,etc....Now I feel I figured it out that this depressed feeling I get isn't mine...It comes and goes,and was hard to figure out for me before I realized it was not mine...It's my son I'm picking up...Not saying he is unhappy with his marriage or whatever,but these are his emotions and always had problems sharing them....Thiis may have nothing to do with his family...and prior to this I was feeling sadness for 2 weeks at a time,then it was gone and came back and I'm saying to myself ,I'm sad? So now I have to try and keep thus away!! I should just stay in a bath of Epsom Salt!😂The only thing left that I cannot do, because it's to painful and I dont think about it is that I cannot write a journal to my grandchildren, it's to painful and I don't want to go there!  FYI My son has a half sister and brother...His sister is my daughter we are that bonded..She is a forensic Phsycologist and said she can't even wrap her head around this one..plusshe was by and still is by my side for support ,especially earlier when I treally needed it...Thank God for her and her husband! In fact my daughter paid to move me!  She tells me things that are tears of joy!....as for myself I have no guilt feelings whatsoever about not doing enough for my son,in fact I spent the last 50,000 supporting him for 2 yrs because he said he needed to go to training,I said what? Yes to be Law Enforcement..I said you didn't even apply yet..My boyfriend at the time rolled his eyes,but I wanted to do it and I'm glad I did because he had a path for employment!..Today he is in Law Enforcement,although he said Il pay back 25,000 and I said yes because I need it! But that went out the door when he got married then the baby..His wife was looking for an arguement saying well if I knew I would have made you a bill(he handed over the finances) I kept repeating Forgetaboutit!,he is my son....Although she cost me more money when she took him off my family plan with the cell phone! Example he said Mom don't worry about it if there is a charge I will pay it,325$...He was always a man of his word......Well nothing got paid,oh well...plus the wife was telling me I stole money from my son, NEVER and he knows it..I was screaming in front of my building,I vandalized her mother's car, please and I would get all these texts from the Anti Christ,oh and I have to protect them from you! What? And the worse I got emotionally and asking why are you saying this, i was devistated but Il stop here because there is all that in between in this story!  I posted my story on FB..I even put all the residences and the property I owned,and some evil howdy doody troll looking bitch's Hot dog stand in it with the picture of it! She caused me nothing but grief for she would call the Anti every day and said this one said that,on and on for o ER a year...Then I would get the text ,tell your friends to stop talking about me and my family!   MY FAMILY!  But I felt better after I posted it because I said to him I will expose you for what you are!...........PS I know what you mean about hiding in the church for many different reasons!  And what the Catholic Church did to these children is sickening! No word...oh, and when Pope Paul the 11 was canonized I said What? He covered up all thus child abuse,he knew about it,and theycanonize him? Then someone said,well maybe because of his good work! I said I don't care what this man did nothing Trumps CHILD ABUSE!     My religion is ala carte..I take what I like and leave the rest!     Sorry another long one....I didn't check typos.....But you were on the money! Pun intended😂

Has anyone done a past life regression?


Empath

@cheshire-cat Ihave never done past lives yet..I'm confused when you said I'm sorry I chose this lesson..I definately have experienced lessons in life,but I did not choose them to experience..Through numerology I found my karma that is attached to me! Some people I know feel they are being punished by bad experiences but I say these are lessons to be learned..I agree about not judging people..But if someone comes after me,Il take care of it!

I never knew about the sociopath , if I was aware I would have saved myself heart ache and pain...The sociopath is a brother to me..The only advice I would say to someone is identify the sociopaths around you!  This is so important ,then you know what you are dealing with..Not knowing he destroyed me,but I'm back and was always a free spirit!  The biggest mistake for me was not knowing he was a sociopath@emppire I think once you get off the fence,I hate being there I feel for you to accept you are a empath you will be going forward..I say this because you are describing yourself and to me you are an empath..But the sooner you make a choice if you are or are not an empath, you will feel more calm.😀As far as other people go, You are who you are and sometimes it can't be explained..I know that you want to share this with your friends and to some people it's impossible..Plus don't be on the defense...I am so happy that you came here and you can share with other empaths and who knows you may wind up with a friend that is in your own circle! I know the experiences can be overwhelming and you want to share this!😀Please don't overthink it.. I know because my wheels can do some spinning😀I'm a free spirit all my life,and that's all I know how to be and want to be..someone doesn't understand,oh well...Now I'm 63..I still dance to my own beat to the drum!

Empath

Thank You for all sharing.Your experiences make me go down memory lane,for I never knew I was an empath until a few yrs ago..Although I always knew that these experiences were real,just never had a name..@lotusfly,you are spot on when you said empath is a broad term for many possibilities! Many many yrs ago I was wondering why my emotions were so deep,and then I found out my emotions (Moon) in astrology was in Scorpio,emotions are so intense so I said OMG , now I understood myself better,but here it's just a double whammy for me! 🙄

Parents/Upbringing?


Empath

I grew up in an old Italian neighborhood,in fact I'm still here..I was raised Roman Catholic..I'm trying to put this simple..Where I grew up this was normal😂😂😂Who had a dream and ran by someone's grandmother to see what it meant..We didn't know of the word Empath..No matter what it was that someone said,I feel this is gonna happen,I know someone is gonna die,anything they felt this was all normal where I grew up!

A Child Empath, does anyone have one that became apath?


Empath

Just a FYI....Since all this has happened,all my deceased family is with me! They let you know they are here..But I'm always crying for them.....See what the Anti Christ did to me would have never happened if one other family member was alive!

A Child Empath, does anyone have one that became apath?


Empath

I have a child that I believe was an empath...At 5 yrs old the spirit world came into his life.He told me he met my deceased brother.and he did..We were always tuned into each other,he was always a kind caring child through adulthood..At 30 yrs old, he did a 180, and threw me right out of his life when he married and I have 2 grandchildren..at 8 I took him to the physciatrist dept at U of I university,because he came home and said he had shortness of breath.I have panic/anxiety disorder and I was very worried.They did partial testing on him and he was of superior intelligence and estimated IQ of 123-133..They provided a written report and I kept it.about 5 yrs ago he found the report and was reading it out loud and it said I stated he was a wonderful child and it also said he had a hard time talking about his emotions and said and I'm still the same..The anxiety was over taking tests,so that passed..We lived together until he was married,well he moved out and moved back.We always got along and trusted each other.I know he trusted me....There was an article in here called the empath,apath and sociopath!...Well I almost fell off my chair because it explained the characters in my story..I'm the empath,my son is the apath,my evil brother is the sociopath...This severed relationship caused an emotional breakdown and single episode Major Depression,oh and my brother the Catholic Priest aka Anti Christ stole all my money of over 200,000 and my son was hiding behind him all the while my brother was abusing me verbally and emotionally..The objective was to get me to leave my building,my son wanted 2 floors.All he had to do was ask. But when he took my grandchildren away,it was just unbearable..I did leave my building because I was so sick from them.The Anti Christ in particular..My son just picked up and moved without telling me.This was insanity to me because this was not my son..I was emotionally broken,I didn't have the energy to confront him.Im a free spirit whose wings were broken...It has been 3 yrs since I have seen my son and grandchildren....His wife,mother in law,the Anti Christ were all involved in this plan of a coup...........My son would not attend therapy,which he agreed to because he said he was emotionally drained,but it wasn't from talking to me....I never realized how much influence the sociopath had over him..To this present day none of this makes sense to me....My son just hid behind the sociopath,barely said anything toward the end............To me my empath child turned into an apath,for all I know a sociopath..As far as myself I'm trying to move forward and lock these doors behind me...But I have another problem because I'm picking up depression,sadness and it's not mine.....Not that I am jumping for joy at 63 , let alone the Anti Christ left me homeless and my son did nothing!....thank God for my friends and now I'm in my own apartment. It was overwhelming the support from my friends and truly did support me financially and stayed by my side...I realize his mother in law hates me I guess ,actually she is jealous,jealous of what?  Prior to this,never argued with anyone.........So was my son ever an empath ?  Can a sociopath manipulate an empath that he became apath?  My guard was down ,and I was on the defense...Never in a million yrs would I think this would happen,in fact friends around me said if this can happen to you it could happen to anyone!  Well I always was the example and my Dr said there is one person in every family that gets the blame and it's you!.....I shut my mouth when things were said ,because I didn't want to be the one to blame if they got divorced......This 35 yr old man is not the boy I raised and the man he became until this happened......I tried to shorten the story 😀

Empath

I have fibromyalgia...'This condition mimics other conditions..Now you could be experiencing others, I am an emotional and physical empath...But what you have described also sounds like Fibromyalgia,which there isn't a test for.The nerves are wild in my body..It's hard for me to differentiate my pain from others....Years ago for Fibromyalgia Drs said it was in their heads..Some ,not many don't recognize it although they added this condition for medical marijuana......

Empath

I wish I knew years ago this knowledge on Empath's..I just winged it for years protecting myself the best I could by my own instincts..Situations that made me feel so emotional I didn't go,such as a persons wake.Well now I know why.

Empath

I Agree with@bunnigirl..For so long I didn't listen to my gut,but Il give you an example when I said the gut is always right.....I met 2 wonderful clients who were becoming friends with me..They couldn't be nicer....my gut at one point said stay away and I did..It didn't make any sense to me but I stayed away because of my gut feeling..The gut is always right even if it doesn't make sense.

Empath

I also have experienced feeling someone else's pain...Not that one wants to literally feel it ,it's nice I think at least you know who it is.......Now for me at this point I have arthritis and fibromyalgia,it was simpler when I was younger because I didn't have these conditions. I was able to separate myself from easier from other's pain..I do have an anxiety disorder..When my brother died that's when it started..My Dr said you will find this in your family,it's hereditary..I did find it on my father's side..In the experiences I have had I never knew there was a name for it,Empath!  Then I just found out that there are different kinds of Empaths..I am physical and emotional..Yes you are sensitive to others and you are also sensitive,like a lot of us....I bet your therapist is a Empath!😀
