what a great psych appointment @Sherry
4 weeks prior, when there was so much uncertainty for me., andyou had soo much on your mind my friend , with everything that was going on , wondering why you were zoning out and overthinking == ( I would of done the same ) xx
such as a greater ability to listen, a better understanding of others wants and needs, much greater empathy than the average person and a high degree of intuitiveness.--- this is you My @Sherry , you are awesome on the forum , you are caring, loving
a HSP will likely feel too much and feel too deeply. Often it will affect our health, happiness and overall wellbeing.-- this what happend to me too
this is why moderators say to have a good balance between real life and sane forum life
I am trying to know when i should have a break , even if it is just a few hours -- still learning
yes sleep does make a diffence and as I get up 4 times a night every night

I totally know what you mean @Sherry
I've been told that I'm too emotional and very sensitive. And how you described it is how I've been told I am.

Thank you @Shaz51 💕🤩
I am very glad that the moderators ensure that you Guides have a good balance. I have no doubt at all that the majority of people here on the forums (both guides and regular members) would be Highly Sensitive People. So its very important to take time out when needed. Gaining that healthy balance is hard though, because you being such a caring and empathetic soul, you want to help everyone. But it takes a toll on you at the same time. Keep learning Shaz, because your own wellbeing is paramount.

Yes @BlueBay ... its very interesting. I have been doing some research since Wednesday. Not knowing before that such a personality exists. I will post some more about it a bit later. Because I think a lot of people here will definitely relate to it. Hugs back to you ... 💔😃 Hope you are enjoying your time with little A today. And perhaps doing some colouring in with her.

Yes we did @Maggie ... a lot of ground was covered. I was there for over an hour and a half. Back to our usual in other words. 😀

Just caught up on your posts. I had been away for a couple of days.
It is really good that your psychologist recognised her distraction and apologised for cutting your session short. I can relate to clinging to your last thread of coping.
Many may not have. SHe seems to have tried to make up for it and cares about the effect closure of her business had on the community. There are so many issues. Its not just about being professional. I observd the change in the field and the monetisation or increasing commercialisation of compassion and care.
Take care of you and post what you can. You have always been a great presence here.
