1. How many Type A Overachiever/Perfectionists are out there? (I'm raising my hand--+ I'm a first born) 2. How many of you feel/sense others emotions? Do you think this is real? It was touched on in Starlanyl's book... the EMS sensitivity thing... I have always thought I could *feel* people like that & I have to be very, very careful not to let that get tied up with my own sense of self... but then for a long time convinced myself that this was (oh, part of cognitive behavioral therapy right?) FALSE thinking... only now I read this and think... I really DO think I can... NOT "read" people's minds... no. But like, my husband will INSIST there is NOTHING wrong & I KNOW there is. I try to remind myself that it's probably something from work or whatever that he doesn't want to talk about... because MOST of the time I assume it's something *I* did & that sends me in a fast downward spiral... but anyway. It was kind of interesting/nice to read that this IS a phenomenon noted among those w/ FMS. Because I swear... I really DO FEEL his (& others) emotion coming off him in "waves." I just need to remind myself that I don't always know/understand the source exactly, or the reason... Anyway. Just wondering if anyone else out there experiences this & how many of us are those Type A's... I felt pretty good this weekend and I overdid it in a BAD BAD way. I'm paying for it today & I have to go to work... ugh. Ah well, tomorrow is a day off.
