RE: Empaths
I am overly empathetic towards people and animals - which I consider a curse for myself, but good for others. Particularly distress in the young, the old and other animals gets to me and I suffer if I can't fix it. Can't get it out of my head. Makes me hate the world at times.

That's not what these "empaths" are all about. They are about ego. Being special. Knowing more than others.

They have no business disgracing the word "empathy".

RE: Empaths
I have limited empathic abilities. I can always sense when a guy likes a girl. You may just assume it's because off the drool and the bulge in his pants, but I can really feel the emotion.

Conversely, I have no clue when a girl likes a guy. That's especially true if the guy is me.

Yes, they were sure to make perfectly clear to me how many times they've "blown peoples' minds" with their super-awesome insight. It just added to their constant reinforcement of one another.

"Wow...I was right about the lives of a few gullible boobs I see and talk to every day. I must be something special! That just proves it!"

One at a time, bro. Between the JW study, unicorn sparkles and my aura-reading, I'm swamped for the week.

RE: Empaths
Well, I'm married over 17 years, so no rush. Just fit me in when you can.

They seem like they'll buy into anything, maybe your Amway buddy should talk to them. Big Grin

They won't be able to "read" you because you'll be subconsciously "blocking" them. Or some such bullshit.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

As for "swimming through an ocean of colors every day," as Susan put it, I'm sure a proper dose of meds will take care of that. lol

That's another thing these two were really vehement about. They told about how a bunch of mean ol' doctors tried to say they had "personality disorders and visual hallucinations and a bunch of stupid crap like that," but that they know the real truth about their abilities and they're not gonna let the Man keep them down! (There were several points during the conversation at which I wasn't sure if I wanted to laugh or throw up in my mouth)

I've heard of that thing where you see sounds - something like you got wires crossed in your brain... Maan, I *wish* I had that. It'd be so cool...
