I've been able to spirits since I was five and I'm also and empath. I have NEVER been afraid of the spirits that come to me, but recently they've been getting aggressive. They've been shoving me into walls, slapping me, scratching me, threatening me, and so many other things. I'm afraid if I do something they don't like then they're going to seriously hurt me. For the past couple months I've lived in fear. They don't let me sleep. I can't got o any of my family members about this because they'll send me to a mental hospital, or to a shrink. I need someone to help me. I don't know what to do anymore. What should I do?
Also, where I'm an empath I can feel everything my friends and family are feeling. I am so very, very miserable. My dad has back problems and I can feel when he's in pain. My mom is almost always upset (my parents are divorced) and I start crying out of the blue. One of my friends are suicidal and I feel that. I'm afraid that if this continues then I'm going to have a break down. Any ideas how I can deal with this? I'll take any suggestions.
I've always been able to tell if someone is lying to me, or if they're hiding something. I can't figure out why though. I don't know if it's just that I've known a while, or what. The only problem with that theory is, I can sense that kind of stuff with people I've never met before. I'll be walking in, let's say, Wal-Mart, and someone will walk by me. Without realizing what I'm doing, I'll stop them and see if they're okay. Anyone know what the reason is? Or what this is?
Please help me. I've been afraid for about 3 months, and I need answers to everything that's happening to me.
