(((((HUGS))))) for you Op.
Your story was well written, I could feel your pain and suffering as well as your parents. It must have been so difficult feeling different feelings
all the time and not knowing where to place them. Children already have weird feelings while growing up (or at least I did), so I can only imagine
what you went through.
I actually found myself relating, but on a much smaller scale.
For me, I feel intense empathy for people and my mother tells me often I do not live in "reality". Maybe she says that because I am not one to
conform to society....don't know, but she has been saying that ever since I was a little girl. My friends may not have come from the best
neighborhood but I have always been drawn to people who are less fortunate with big hearts. After 38 years I have learned that my feelings will jump
from high and low in a minute, especially when I am in a public place, although my feelings are not on a physical level where I will get and or feel
sick. I can, however look at someone or talk with someone and sense their emotional state intuitively.
I spoke with an "intuitive" not too long ago. After the 1000 year flood here in TN. I lost one of my dear friends in the flood. He was beautiful
inside and out. After 8 dreadful months of searching for Danny the family brought an intuitive on the scene. She, after being taken down the river,
pointed to where his remains were. I later asked her how she saw him and she said, "everyone can do what I do, you just have to learn to go with your
From day one of searching I thought he was close to where the car went in...this was common sense to me and there was nothing intuitively telling me,
I just knew he couldn't have went far with all the debris rushing against his weightless body. After she pointed to his remains within the water,
under debris, I did think....I knew he was close, why couldn't I "see" exactly where he was.
As an empathetic, you are intuitively empathetic to others feelings, emotions, and can become physically sick. This is something I think we all have
when we are in our truest energetic state. You so happen to feel it on an extreme level whereas I, myself, feel it on a much smaller scale. Sometimes
I feel like a magnet to others who have issues and or problems in their life. They seem to flock to me and I often hear, "its like you know exactly
how I feel and I just met you." I am in no way saying I am special, just telling you a little about me and where I stand on this subject on a
If I had my way....no way would I want your gift (sorry) as I would not want to feel physically sick or feel others pain as if it were my own. I would
however love to learn how to find missing persons.
Thank you for your story this morning. It was inspiring to think others may read this, especially those with children who are perhaps going through
the same thing. I have never thought of children being mis-diagnosed because of this gift and because of your story I will make sure to keep an eye on
the children around me.
