When I discovered I was an empath a couple of years ago, so many things made sense.
Like why I needed naps every day after middle school and high school, before I had health issues. Why I started crying hysterically on Valentine’s Day during my sophomore year of college but wasn’t consciously sad. Why I started crying the second I walked into a hospital waiting room.
Pain was one of my main debilitating symptoms from Lyme and co-infections. I experienced severe headaches, jaw pain, and neck, shoulder, and back pain daily. Before I was diagnosed, I tried prescription pain killers and they did nothing.
My skin was usually pretty clear (with occasional breakouts and redness) until my Lyme symptoms started getting worse. My face became super puffy, and when I started treatment, I broke out on my face and neck.
