Like most, I have known since I was young that I was "special" but not until recently have I begun to understand my situation. I started doing research on being an empath and trying to understand my inner self.
A few days ago I felt an unnatural presence in my apartment. My body then became paralyzed by a strange tingling feeling. I didn't see or hear anything but I felt it. The odd thing is ever since that happened I now can't seem to "turn off" my empathy. It used to be random and just happen when it seemed I needed it. Now I pick up emotions and feelings from everywhere. I can barely stand being in crowded places for extended periods of time without feeling emotionally drained. I can't listen to music or watch television without feeling the raw emotion of what's happening.
I can't explain it better than that but those who can help me know what I mean. Its beginning to take away from the joy of my own life. I just want to be able to control it or and least be able to filter my senses. Has this happened to anyone else? I want to make sure that I'm not going crazy and I'm not really sure anyone else I know would be able to understand or help. Any info would be great and I appreciate anyone who takes the time to help. Thank you
