Am I An Empath? Or Do I Need Medication?


I have always been extremely emotional. I would not consider myself bi-polar. But, my emotions fluctuate very rapidly. One minute I can be crying, and the next minute I am completely happy. I can be high energy one day, and low energy the next (or even a few hours later).

When I was ten years old I was depressed, I prayed to God that he would just let me take on other peoples problems too, because I was already depressed, so it didn't matter if I took their pain as well.

I am a human lie detector. I can tell when someone is lying to me very easily. I feed off of the emotions of others. If someone is depressed, than I feel depressed too. If someone is happy, than I am happy. If I drink alcohol, after the first couple drinks of a beer I feel drunk.

I often finish other peoples sentences, or know what they are going to talk about before they start to talk about it. I just always thought that this was normal, and that I was just smart enough to see the signs and know what they were going to talk about. But, I met this guy online and we talk for hours, and he says it is totally weird that I can finish his sentences and know what he is talking about or going to say before he says it. I kind of just think that maybe I am just seeing obvious clues as to what he is going to say. But, it is not just with him. It is with most people.

I prefer to stay to myself. When I am in large crowds I am very quiet and feel really anxious a lot of the time. I am not shy at all. I just need to know if there is something wrong with me, or if maybe I am empathic?

I am twenty-seven years old, and just thought of this today. I have found that when I pray really hard for something, it often happens. As a child we were really poor, and my parents truck would never start. But, I would close my eyes and pray so hard about it over and over it my mind and it would start every time after that. That kind of stuff happens a lot to me. I just always assumed it was just God answering my prayers.

I sense things about people. Sometimes I don't listen to the thoughts that cross my mind, and I regret it later. For example, when I was sixteen my friend and I decided to shop lift. It was the first time I had ever done anything like that. As I walked into the fitting room I saw a customer pushing a cart towards me. I though to myself. That guy is security. But, I was like, "Why did I think that? Security wouldn't be here. We haven't done anything wrong." Turns out he was, and I learned my lesson that day. That kind of stuff happens to me all the time, and I have finally just learned to trust my intuition.

Anyway, I could be way off base here. But, if for some reason it sounds like I am not, could someone please give me some advice? Is there a book I should read or something? If this is what I am, I would love to learn to develop this more so that I can help others.

I have worked in management and in Human Resources most of my life, and I have always been able to motivate people based on their individual motivations. I am now going to school to be a nurse. I have a huge interest in psychology, and am thinking about getting into nurse psychology.

Thanks so much for any advice.

Well, I'm not sure about a book, but you can read up on this stuff online. You sound like an empath, I was diagnosed with bipolar but it turned out to be emapthy. I know how to control it better with certain exercises that help have your own emotions and not someone elses. My email is on my profile if you need help with anything just send me a note if you need help.

Blessed Be,
Tess ❤
