Not Just Anxiety Disorder


I just started having a problem with anxiety about a year ago. I went to the dr and he has prescribed me pills, told me maybe I should go into counseling, keep my stress levels down, etc. At least I thought it was anxiety until I realized that it happens around people (not social anxiety either) And now that I've figured it out, it's not really anxiety, but I just feel as if I know how people feel towards me and what they are feeling in general.

I have friends and I am comfortable around them until I know there is something wrong, and I start to feel anger, frustration, sadness, confusion. Whatever it is they feel I feel. It makes me look a little odd to say the least. And when I get a super bad vibe off of someone who seems to be judging me or someone else in a negative way, I almost get sick to my stomach. And I'm usually right, finding out one way or another.

I just want to find out if anyone else that had a extremely "normal" life all of a sudden started feeling things like this? I'm almost 25 and it's never happened before. I'm happy to say it doesn't happen a lot but from what I figured most of my feelings turn out to be true. I wasn't skeptical of psychics but I completely didn't believe in things of this nature. I'm just trying to figure out if it's something I should keep going to the dr. For or something I'm going to have to deal with. Thanks for any input!

[at] xokelso.There is nothing wrong with you and you are completely fine. The thing you are calling depression isn't depression. Its called empathy. Its an ability to read people, their intentions and their thoughts. Too much negative energy will simply drain you and give you headaches and you will think negative as well so its not really depression its just the effect of negative energy that you are feeling from others. Like you I am an emapth too. I was pretty worse back then but now I can control my ability. If I feel too much negative energy then I can simply block it. If you need any more help then you can mail me.

I am not sure if I have the same thing as you. I am trying to fully understand my anxiety. I have noticed that my anxiety heightens further when I am around people, but I am also afraid to be alone. I have a feeling that I can read everyones true intentions. I get dark dark thoughts, about the world around me, about the people around me. I can feel the dark energy that is everyones true soul. See I feel that we all have truly horrible intentions to further ourselves in this game of life, and sometimes when I think about the thoughts that I think, I can feel the anxiety, I get headaches and I feel an overwhelming sense of guilt and pity. This is not absolute concrete, I am only an 18 year old girl trying to find out what is wrong with me, and this is the best theory I can come up with in my mind.

I just found this site today and I'm glad I did. I have the same exact problem as you except I've had it since I was young, but didn't know what it was until someone told me "you're an empath." I have a hard time being around people because I feel what they feel. If they are frustrated I get frustrated, angry, sad, depressed, anxious,happy, and so on. Sometimes it makes me physically sick. Recently though I've realized sometimes when I'm in certain places I get random feelings from what seems to be nothing, no people around. I also see shadowy figures that don't seem to be humans but animals. Never full on always out of the corner of my eye, like they run past me. I've seen things since I was young, I used to hear things also mostly just my name when no one was around and usually it was right when I was about to do something like stub my toe or bump my head. So all in all you're not alone. I can't shut it off and sometimes I don't want to. I sometimes like to know how people feel about me.

Don't be scared. It is just normal for people who are empathic.

I do, feel like that when I am in public. Try to stay alone and check the difference. I mean all alone, no cats, nothing just you. Try it for a while.

If you feel calm if your not in public then you might be an empath.

An empath has a big problem. That is they are able to feel thousands of emotions at once if they can't modulate their shields.

Try to search on site about psychic vampires since they have info on basic shielding or just search around.

I advice to use black if you don't want anything to interfere with you. Black is taboo for me since at that state I can't even feed at all.

Since your not you may use it for an absolute protection.

at Iunderstand

We have Mind body and soul for the soul is the base line and the mind is what brings the soul and body together. The heart repersents the heart racing repersents the good doing of the soul and the gut feeling represents the bad doing of the soul and the mental pressure represnts the balence between it all.

I completely agree with wavy anneV said. Although I would like to add, going to the gym and workin out, aswell as running, is a good way to center your being. The human being is a threes part creation. We have a soul, spirit, and body. Emotion, thought, and physical form. Each part should be constantly maintained to fully experience all it means to be human. I'm 24 by the way. I'm very much interested in all things artistic, intellectual, and physical challenging. Learning about brainwave levels is very interesting, I recommend looking into it. Some say people like us suffer from disorders and deficiencies but I say that people who aren't intune with things around them are the ones who need help. I have been described as a empath by a few people. It has been very hard for me throughout my life because of it. Just remember we are the normal ones, others who have no emotional depth are the weird ones. I really hope this helps out. The number one thing that has carried me through all trials in life has been the grace of God. I'm a Christian, Jesus is my Savior.

MarilynBlank I love AnneV's post
She's on the mark and waste's no words.

I can only add chanting, filling you mind with positive can be devotional or reading a book like Cup of soup can lift ones heart and mind.
Hypnotherapy, Alexander Techniques are all
Good additions.

I think people suffering anxiety are more normal than they realize. How can one not feel some anxiety with the way things are going in the world? You'd have to have your head stuck in the sand to not feel it. And humans in general are the most chaotic, frustrated, lost beings on this planet so any person with empathy is going to pick up on that.

You cannot get away from humans that I'm aware of! So the next best thing is learning coping skills. How do the rest of people with developed sensitivity do it? I cannot speak to others but can only offer you a tip or two from myself. First, pick your friends very carefully. Wean off energy consumers and drama addicts. Second, make time for yourself. Every day should have some sort of down time whether it's reading, meditating, reflection, finding a place of beauty and enjoying it, time with your pet who loves you unconditionally, etc. This will recharge your "batteries" and make coping a lot easier. Last, turn off the radio, tv, computer and get in the slow lane. This life will suck you in and spit you out if you follow mainstream activities. Learn how to get quiet, both internally and externally.

Hope this helps.
