Welcome to the EC! Here are our community guidelines to help you navigate and contribute on site. Please read before posting. Enjoy your time here.
You are in exactly the right place. If you go to the HOME page you will find the "Empath Survival Guide" which is a great help along with some short quizzes you can do which will help you to define your skills in greater detail. Here you are among thousands of your own kind and your self description has been the same of many who have come before you and now members of the EC. You can finally open up and talk to other empaths who fully understand what you are experiencing and will help you to learn shielding techniques and finally feel good about these gifts. You are not going crazy and are quite empathically normal. We have 6,not 5, senses. We "Feel" the world around us. It is somewhat similar to living in a world where the majority is color blind and we are not. You are HOME. Know that you are loved.
Throw some love into the wind.
