I'm not sure how to really describe the following, but I desperately need help with it.
I have recently split with my partner; I have always been able to feel the emotions of others as my own, but only the people who I am in love with.
The pain and love I now feel from my ex partner is enormous; I can tell the moment she wakes; I can't put into words what this feeling is. There are no words which describe it. The only relief from this is when she is in a deep sleep. I feel the connection lift when she sleeps. The problem is that I love her very much; her pain added to mine is terrible. Nothing seems to block this; concentrating on something helps but I can't hold this concentration for more than a few minutes.
Sometimes I can hear her words; I know this is corrected because it used to happen when we were together. The words seem it ride on the emotion; I feel that I am losing my mind at times but I can assure you that this is happening. I am a scientific engineer and know how to test and evaluate data. It was my partner who ended the relationship for reasons that I do not want to get into here.
The only way for me to escape this is to sleep in the day and stay up all night, doing the reverse to my partner. It is not effected by distance; we are 40 miles apart, but even at 170 miles it's just the same.
Is there anyone who is able to help in any way because I am losing my life over this. The doctor just put me on antidepressants' which help but do nothing to block the (transmission) from my ex.
