My name is Aureth (I know my name is strange) am 17 years old and I am... I guess a few other things along with being an empath. From a young age I've been able to see, hear, and feel things that others cannot. Back when I was in 5th grade I started picking up strange emotions that were not my own... But it started getting really bad when I was in eighth grade.
Now I am in high school and now its even worse. I actually have studied up on these strange emotions and through my family I found out I was empathic. When I am at home I feel for the most part fine, but when I go to school I become overwhelmed with all sorts of different emotions.
The main thing here is now the emotions I'm picking up are becoming so intense, so much so that it makes me sick and it's preventing me from going to school. When I am at school or somewhere that's crowded with people I start getting light headed and it would feel like my head would be ready to explode trying to make sense of all of these emotions. I'm sick of having to stay inside away from people all the time.
There is more to this story but the main thing I am trying to do is get help with controlling these emotions.
Can anyone help me, or tell me how I can tone this down so I can start going back in public, really any advice would be nice.
Thank you in advance.:]
