I discovered that I'm very likely to being an emotional empath, following with having the physical abilities. Whenever somebody I'm very close with (whether being far away or not), is feeling distressed or even happy, I feel the same way as them. Sometimes I can't really tell if it's my emotions or theirs. It's really concerning me because I'm not in complete control of how I feel when I'm around a lot of people, or even around one person.
When I was out with a friend recently, I was having really bad stomach pains. These pains had nothing to do with having my period or anything of the sort. I never ever experienced such pain before besides one other time. Later on that night, I found out that my sister that is pregnant had to go to the hospital because she was having really bad stomach pains.
I feel like I'm going crazy. I don't know if this all could be a coincidence, or if this is seriously something I need to work on controlling. I have strangers or even friends come to me for advice constantly, and always tell me I'm a good friend for it. I always try to help people as much as I can.
There's also my back pain. I have severe back pain under my left shoulder blade. This only hurts every other day or when there's somebody around me that is stressed. It then makes me very very stressed to the point where I stay away in my bedroom.
I don't want to be around a lot of people because I'm scared that I'm going to absorb all of their emotions. It happened before and I had a really bad anxiety attack.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
