    It's time. This moment has been slowly

    approaching with anticipation. Too slowly. Too anticipating. You've been ready since the beginning. The blood now rushes faster through your veins than ever before. It's as though your heart is plugged into an amplifier. The echos pulsing in all directions with utmost speed...

    Ridiculously So......

    I have got more so as I have got older. I am not the type that goes around crying at everything but I am the type who feels everything VERY deeply. I guess the best way I can describe it is that on an emotional level, some people will feel things a bit and I will feel it three...

    I've never seen other people

    who get as upset as I do over an animal being hit by a car or things like that. I'm reading a Stephen King book, "Duma Key", about a guy who is in a construction accident and is maimed and has brain damage. The world he knew is gone, it will never be as it was again. He will...

    Recently I've gotten a lot of answers I've been

    looking for in my life, all by realizing I'm an empath. I know things without knowing them, I'm highly sensitive to others emotions. I also get premonitions every so often. I now understand why I'm not a fan of big crowds and why I get overwhelmed and drained. It's really hard...

    Mega-Empath

    When I was younger I thought my other family members were more psychic than me. We have native American blood. But it wasn't until I was older that I realized that to date I am the most psychic, just in a Hellen Keller kind of way. Over the years I learned to ultilize my other...

    Why do I cry now? Only for your pain. Honestly it's the only time I cry anymore. When you call and I am upset you cry and it continues this awful chain. I hate it, how can I stop?
