Can I feel the emotional or physical feelings of others? That is one of the biggest questions I have had my entire life. I see an image of someone going through any type of pain or an emotional event and I can feel myself getting unhappy, getting ready to cry, or so filled with happiness I actually smile and feel lighter. Its at a point where I can't leave the house sometimes because I can't take walking by someone and breaking down in the grocery store from sadness. I just need to know that I'm not going crazy or its all in my imagination.
I can just be sitting on my couch and see a person in my mind, I see their surroundings, the weather, time of day, just about everything that person is experiencing. I can't hear what is being said, the words are muffled. I never know the person, but I can feel the fear, happiness whatever they are feeling at that moment and it gets to be way to much a lot of the time. It always just happens, I never concentrate or ask for it to happen.
I need to know how to shut it off, I have a child of my own now and I don't want to project anything on to her. If the same does happen to her, I want to be able to help her control it. There have been several other anomalies I have experienced, but this one I can't handle. I hope I have explained myself enough and that this article gets published, I really need someone's help. Thank you very much and I appreciate having a website like this to turn to.
