I've been meaning to make a topic about this but, ironically, I keep forgetting to. Needless to say, when I am in public around many people, I become confused and I can't remember things that are on my mind. One example is at the supermarket. I can have a list of things I need to buy in my head and the moment I get to the supermarket I forget everything. Not only that, it's like my mind has been wiped clean. I don't know what about being around people causes such a memory wipe. I was certain this was the reason why I could never focus in math class. Every other class I seem to pass, but math, regardless what I am learning, I can't for the life of me remember anything. Now it's beginning to affect me at work. I work the register now where I work and on some days it gets busy and there are so many customers needing help. The other day I became forgetful and couldn't remember that scrap material was .50 cents a lb and a customer's scrap came out to 2 lbs and my manager had to tell me that it totals to $1. It's an understatement to say I don't like this. I don't enjoy it. I can't be out in public either working or schooling because I can become confused and spacey. What causes that? I can't necessarily explain to people it could be due to my being an empath. However, I was able to deduce it only happens when I am around people. When I am talking to people about something that's bothering me, they dominate the conversation because I can't seemingly remember what was bothering me. I know I have to vent, but what to say is not in my head.
