An Empth Or Mood Disorder


I have no doubt about people having certain abilities. I believe myself, at least I used to, to be empathic for both people and spirits. I also have had numerous other "unexplainable" or weird things happen.

I was raised in a family that either didn't talk bout or just didn't believe in the supernatural. I was always lead to think there was something wrong with me have been on and off many different meds for depression starting around 16. None of them seemed to work. They didn't help with the emotions and frequent mood swings and of course not because they weren't my own (most of the time) and they (meds) would never work on spirits or block out info I get that there no way I should no about.

I recently have had a lot of stress in my life (which I see certain things coming) and have been able to see my first psychiatrist (after 17) years and he diagnosed me with a non-specific mood disorder and now has me on lithum due to the fact nothin else to seem to work.

I'm kind of embarrassed only because of the stigma attached to it. Anyway, now I'm kind of confused. I'm left with the question did my abilities cause a mood disorder or am I just crazy? I have had countless things happen to me some can be validated by other people so if I'm crazy are they too? Please help does anyone else found a link between an empath and mood disorders I'm also afraid if the lithum will block things too I don't want to lose any abilites I just want to feel a bit more normal.

I think drug are like ANYTHING you put in your mouth affects your body and mind. That includes food, meat, vitamins, drinks, etc. It affects your material body, you just have to learn how and if it is beneficial to YOUR life. I think if you find the foods and medicine which works for you, then that is most important.

Some people believe that you have to be vegetarian to be able to progress on higher astral planes. I don't know if that is true are not, but I'm happy were I'm at and like a good hamburger (sorry for the vegans out there)

I avoid drugs personally because they give me headaches, even headache medicine gives me headaches. It messes up my chemical balance. However, if I am really sick with a baterical infection I deal with the headache and take the antiboditics.

You can't lose your abilities unless you misuse them and try and force your will on others or other such actions. However the line between sanity and being able to function in this world effectively while still using your abilities is a very thin line to walk. Most prefer being "normal" with no ability or being always "right" and not questioning themselves and their "abilities" or the spirits they meet. Remember Truth and Love are more important than being "right" all the time. Test all spirits/advice and see if they really have your best interest at heart or are useful to YOUR life.

Your wrong. Meds CAN affect abilitys. I HATE my aderol for ADD. In 4th grade I began seeing the future, sometimes a year into, and in 5th I got diagnosed with ADD. I took emds, and I can honestly say The Aderol is TEARING AWAY at the ability to zone out and see the future. I doont take it if I can help.

Really, taking any drugs will weaken you, and I really wouldn't take them if I were you. Secondly, You are not crazy at all- you're special and unique and probably have a very strong mind and spirit. I would love to help you out in any way I can, and I think I know what you mean when you say you see something coming that is stressing you out- and I can help a lot in that area. Please feel free to contact me, at annie.haftl [at] I'd love to help:)
God's Love-

hey Angel Wings,

That's a good question and I'm glad you asked it because its a good start. It means you don't know but you are open to finding the real answer. Someone who is crazy would have assumed they were sane.

I think the best advice I can give is that you could do with a second and perhaps a third opinion. I for one would find a psychotherapist who also happens to be... A psychic. That way they'll be open minded to getting to the bottom of that question with you, and have both sides of the coin in their repetiore. I hope you find your answers so you can deal with what is.

Im glad I'm not super duper empathic, my mother is bi-polar, most of her family has certain mental disorders, my cousin whom I believed was 19 (god rest his soul) was diagnosed with depression and supposed to be tested for mental disorders the day after he commited suicide by drowning himself. Then maybe 2 years ago I believe we got to baby sit his house while we visited our family, and while he looked very happy when I saw him, he was completely drenched... I think youll be ok, I don't think you can lose your abilities, youd just stop believing in them 😁

I understand the rollercoaster_I've suffered from extreme ups and downs since I was a kid and every weekend when we didn't actually have to wake up at 6am for school I was getting up at 11am if I wasn't being drug out of bed. I just found life in general to be completely exhausting and this certainly went into high school where I even hid in my attic on many occasions just to skip the onslaught of emotions I felt in a typical school day.

It took a long time to realize and be able to develop a clear mind to put all things into perspective. I was diagnosed Bipolar at 27, I'll be 29 in September. Ironically, it was the diagnoses that led me to able to understand my abilities. I was very blessed to have a meds doc that didn't force 'cocktails' on me and trusted me to tell her what worked. I'm no dummy and was not having it any other way. I have been on Lithium since and have gotten my diagnoses down to one dose (by using extended release) and its been just enough to control my mood swings, to find the clarity and CONCENTRATE--that was key for me, because I would get the racing thoughts like I was a sponge and not know what to do with them! Now with lots of study of all things spiritual and just recently psychic I can understand where the vision is coming from. You can't let the meds be a substitute though. I hope to come off of the meds but I will not do it until I'm comfortable and ready. Before going on meds I walked around with this dazed feeling of something between my eyes but in actuality it felt like something was covering up ALL of my eyes and I tried to explain it to my boyfriend but I'm sure it sounded wacky, now I understand the whole 'third eye' thing. Being able to concentrate has opened up my chakras as I know rely on meditation first and foremost but as you can see from my stories there's soo much I have to learn.

To be happy and enjoy life whenever possible is more important than to obsess about 'psychic gifts'. I am not a medical professional and I have limited awareness of what lithium medication achieves (other than googling it). If your prescribed medication makes you feel happier than before you took it, then it is improving your life in a real sense. If this is not the case, consult your doctor or medical professional and bring this to their attention. If you feel troubled by depressive thoughts and confused beliefs, I would suggest you avoid completely involving yourself with such things as paranormal research, occult, ritualised belief-systems. A tired and confused mind is vunerable - these are abstract things which aren't fundemental to being a happy, functioning person/family member/community participant.

A great spiritual tool is humour. Humor will empower you. Have love for life, people, animals but never take life or yourself too seriously, Life is far too serious to be serious about (all the time). It's hard to be sad when you smile and laugh =) Whatever lifelessons and experiences lye in store for you, don't be apprehensive about it or try to second-guess them through divination or perceived powers. Your priority is first to be happy and functioning as you wish to be.

Best wishes
