I am 24 years old and to my knowledge as long as I can remember I have been very empathic. I've had many other experiences that where far more then just empathy, but empathy has by largely been my greatest challenge. Just about anything can change my mood from music to environmental atmosphere like being at a bar around drunk people and getting that "drunk" feeling.
I have actually been confronted by people who have said boy you must of really had some drinks last night. I sit there and think I was the designated driver I've had none. Sometimes I think it may be low blood sugar which I've been known to have but I have in the past checked when I've felt this way and my blood sugar will be fine.
I really wish that I could not allow other to impact my mood whether it be physical people or just energy. My relationships with many people I think would be a lot bettor. I also get weird chills that just come out of no where like one spot on my leg will get it and have goosebumps but I'll be warm everywhere else. My senses in my opinion are far advanced then the people I am around. I can sense difference in the air like I can sense heat or cold pockets. Like we have a fire place and the warm air somehow comes up the wall above it (it's not air duct into the system) hours later not knowing the fireplace has been on I'll walk by this spot upstairs and know that the fireplace had been on. I'll ask my boyfriend to come over to feel the heat but he can't. Even though he was the one who had it turned on while I was gone. Somehow I feel the two are linked together. Emapthy and physical energy maybe it's one in the same one way of the other I'd just like to find more infor and learn hot to control the empathy bettor.
