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.
