I'm new to this site. I thought I'd try to tell you about my experiences with being an empath, I figured it out when I realized how sensitive I am and can be around people.
As a child, I felt everyone's emotions, even animals! I could read their eyes and body language, I have people who are drawn too me like I'm a safe house, they want my opinion or too tell their story even when I don't know them,
Also, when I'm relaxed, I can hear thoughts and even project them but only when I'm relaxed which isn't often these days. I can sense and absorb others pain, physical pain like a knee pain, chest pain, broken heart.
As a kid, they would put me on medication because my moods were so erratic from over load that only twi weeks later I'd be back to square one as they never worked. I find it so hard some days to go out into the world as I pick up on everything. I'm 29 years old and have 3 wonderful kids and I can feel their emotions even when someone is far away.
I just know to call or I think of them a lot in a day and they call me! So this is my story. I read the other stories on line and I was drawn too a Jessy 2279 as her story is very similar to mine I hope we can chat and see what happens. I'm just glad I'm not alone.
