Doctors don’t call you an empath. I’m Snoopy Sometimes I need to be alone and listen to Rod Stewart shirt that severely. It’s not…like…a thing. You can be hyperempathetic, but that’s not something any doctor I’ve seen points out, or acknowledges at all. Sorry. Anyway, I also doubt all your friends are narcs. You probably just assumed that from some egotistical way they acted towards you and now want to look like a special empath who can tame the wild narcissist. I was in college babysitting for a couple who were going out to dinner. The wife walked into the room in her pretty skirt that was completely see-through. In my decorous innocence I whispered to her that she needed a slip. She laughed uproariously and said she purposely dresses that way for date nights. Her husband liked her in see-through skirts Unless your friend gets dressed in a dark room or doesn’t have a mirror, she probably knows and chooses sheer skirts. You could walk behind her with a blanket if you’re worried about her safety. You applied for Social Security Disability. You are told to come to the office to complete an oral interview. You are clean, well groomed, well dressed, and are prepared for the interview. You are denied for benefits. Why, Ironically, more privileged people who know how to game the system and who have connections and who know exactly what to say, what to do, and how to act are are the most likely to get Social Security, versus the most disabled people who had the least to begin with and who complain the least and who are the most likely to miss doctors appointments due to disability!!! For example, If someone is born with a chronic disability and everyday of their life is disability and pain and that’s all they know, they aren’t just going to sit around everyday of their life and complain every minute of the day because that gets old fast. They are actually going to complain less than someone who had a “great active lifestyle” who then became disabled in just one part of their body, because now the second person suddenly can’t do all the extreme things they used to do and that they took for granted!!!
