    The Empath's Curse

    The title says it all. For me, it is a curse when I become overwhelmed. Try as I might, I simply can not turn my feelings on and off. There have even been moments when I've become physically ill. I know now it is due to the fact that I turn all of those emotions inward...

    About To Burst.

    I feel with more intensity than you could possibly imagine. Every emotion you've ever had, I've had to a degree I can't even convey in words. My sorrow is gut-wrenching pain. My anger is uncontrollable rage. My happiness, although fleeting, is filling and complete With all...
