Woes of an Empath

Empaths are used to feeling others' emotions, so being devoid of social connecion isolates us further. Whether the isolation is from social anxiety, chronic illness, recovery, affects everyone different. For an Empath, isolation is hell.
And because it's a positive trait of ours to feel others' emotions, without interaction we don't feel (even with all the angst, fear, etc emotions that surround us in public) all the extra joy that used to surround us and rush to our soul as an old friend embracing us. Joy that we had put out in this world, bounding all around us in celebration of any & everything.

How many of you have been identified by friends or family members as an Empath?

It's been a while...

I know it's been over three years since I've been on here. Things keep getting worse instead of better, even when there's an inch of progress, there is an immediate foot of backslide.
Life with Chronic Illnessess & Chronic Pain is not an easy life. You lose friends, you lose your job, you lose your self worth, you lose your purpose.

People like to talk about how Being a Chronic Pain patient can cause depression & anxiety. What about us chronic patients who already had severe depression (with bipolar under review) & moderate panic.anxiety disorder.

Add in social isolation to someone who was a social butterfly.

I can't dig deep today. It's been too rough a week for all that. But, I want to let you all know I'll be blogging again. It's another form of therapy that may help me tremendously when my brain fog isn't too thick for the lighthouse.
