So my emotional dysregulation impacts my life greatly. I mostly struggle with frustration. When I’m frustrated it’s very intense.
I’m also an empath. And recently I dove headfirst into vlogs about Dissociative Identity disorder (not cuz I have it, I was just interested in it) and I started disassociating and then my empathic abilities made me sort of “assimilate”? I say assimilate because I put myself so much in a person’s shoes that I start to experience feelings and thoughts as if I’m them. And then I can’t regulate those feelings…
This is a lot to understand, but I was wondering if anyone else has similar experiences with emotional dysregulation and empathy.
