I'm Not Sure If These Experiences Are Just Empathetic?

I’m not sure if these experiences are just empathetic?
Looking back at my past I've somewhat noticed some things about my attitude and emotions towards others. I’m not all too sure if it is overactive or uncontrolled empathetic abilities but I’m not all too sure about it because I have no idea what it is.
A friend of mine that I met around January of 2012 is kind of readable to me I've only known her for this year and we’re really close. The thing about her is that we both share similar interest on certain levels, but one thing for sure is that I think I’m feeling her aura or emotions or something of that nature. But now it’s like every time I’m around her I’m always in a state of being annoyed. Maybe I’m over thinking it but that’s just one thing.
This happens quite often for me, there are a few days out of each month that I’ll be angry for no reason at all. This will last for the entire day, days, or even a week at a time and it’s weird because as I go on there are things that will add on to that anger which normally wouldn't make me mad. Around November of 2012 I had one of those days were I was angry for no reason and it lasted for the entire day. As the day went on there was a point when I was walking back to the dorm area with a friend of mine and as we walked back there was a girl in a SUV and as I was talking to my friend I didn't hear the girl nor did I see her so when she said hi to him I didn't notice it but when she said hi to me I just had an outburst which normally doesn't happen. After that outburst I noticed all that anger I had inside of me was gone and I felt way better then what I was.
Any time I go to a hospital it’s mainly been to visit someone but I've always noticed that I keep on getting nauseated and weak in the knees. What bizarre is that I’m not even looking at all the other people in the hospital I think I’m just feeling some type of energy from their aura’s or something about them. What even more crazy is that I think I felt something from my sister last night this was on 12/28/2012. It was weird because I know she had been feeling pain from a tooth of hers, she took some type of medicine went to sleep and a little after she woke up I felt some weird pain in my stomach and I was nowhere near hungry at that moment and neither was she. The next morning I found out that her stomach was hurting because of the medicine that she took and another thing about that is that I was feeling okay before that even happened.
From the things that I've looked up I think this is over active empathy or something of that nature but I’m still unsure about psychical empathy.

Okay. So, a suggestion to you. Note the days that you are extra edgy. I have this too and mine come with full moons. Two, you need to learn control over your empathy. I ground and shield. This is helpful to ground yourself to the earth and regain some energy. Shielding will help you block energy and help to decipher if these feelings or yours or others.

Now, what struck my fancy is about the hospital. I work in healthcare.... I'm wondering if you are possibly a healer. I discovered that I was through working I'm healthcare.... Maybe you should try and figure out if you are a natural healer.... Just a suggestion. Let me know if you want to discuss this more. Just PM me if you wish.

I've had some time to think about these experiences plus i'm kinda sure what my normal emotions are but hard to decipher, because I feel it constantly and I thought it was my own emotions in the past.
Other then that I haven't looked to much into empath healers kinda read about them, but I though that was psychical empathy though?

i know what your talking about. I have no information to help, but there have been times when i felt like i had been drinking. Even wake up with a hangover. And all i would be drinking is coffee. Its a crazy weird experience of course i'd joke about it. And people close enough to me that know these things about me, have gotten used to me being "weird" its so hard to define if they are really you or not. But i've noticed this was going on a lot longer than i noticed. I just noticed it almost 3 years ago. All i can offer is that you do get used to it. As far as shutting it out, i'm clueless. Maybe you can narrow down who is giving off those feelings and talk to them.

I completely understand what your saying but when it comes to talking to people I do talk to them and it does help them with whatever situation their in. To add on to it I guess i tune into their emotions unconsciously because I can either walk into a room where they are and i'll automatically ask "What's wrong?" or "Are you ok you seem a little mad, sad, etc." But for me i really didn't pay attention to it as much until recently because of how weird I've been acting and i know part of that isn't entirely me. Thanks for the response, and how did it actually take you to get yours under control?

I'm not so sure I have mine under control. :) I like to think I do sometimes....I just remind myself that I'm ok...that I'm not angry, or sad or anything that life is ok and nothing to complain about...so it must be someone around me..take deep breaths and begin figuring out who...sometimes, they don't even have to be close. There is someone that I feel that is miles and miles away....She is usually the last person I think it is...I end up calling her and venting, and wa-la...I find the source...I'll tell her what I'm feeling and she'll say something like me too....I'll let her unload and then we both feel better.
It takes a lot to get me angry. but have noticed my temper is short here lately....I get aggravated because people don't understand, or don't seem to care you know? And then theres always those that don't believe...I didn't pay attention to mine until life changed and extemely weird unbelievable things happened...I can't talk about those because I know it's real and it happened, but I can understand why no one would believe me.

Strangely enough there was a time recently when i was talking to my best friend over the phone and we where both experiencing the same thing in the exact same order but just like your friend he's miles and miles away as well I guess that counts to.
Do you know if being empathetic you might have the ability to tune into someones deep emotions or aura when your by them, cause recently there was a guy in a class I took during the summer semester college and I don't know what it is but there's something about him that I don't like but I've never even held a conversation with the guy at all.

I really don't know much about being empathetic...I just know what I experience...I haven't read the description of that title, so if it fits.....but, I have experienced what your talking about...like you want absolutely nothing to do with them, but can't tell them, or yourself why....I always chalked that up to just having the inner gut feeling that maybe you two would be like oil and water. Once in a while, by no help from me, those people still tend to enter my space and I'll be biting my tongue and holding my legs from running away, make myself listen to them because i don't want to be rude, you know....but they end up being friends....I'll still be trying to convince myself that it's me, that I'm having some sort of problem accepting them and I cant figure out why...well, not very many times have i regretted staying away when i got that feeling, but so many times i've regretted not listening to my gut. So, keep whoever it is at arms length....you don't have to be rude, just don't let your wall break to easily....On the other hand, I've also came across people that i had no problems being around and they've ended up hurting me just the same....I wouldn't see it coming....I suppose it's just best to keep everyone at arms length, until you can get a good read on them to know whether or not they are good people or not.

Thanks for the insight i'm sure i'll end up finding all that i need to in the future. And I've done a bit of research on empaths before i came to this site and right now I mainly need to talk to other people about their experiences before I can slap a label on anything.

That's me...I don't like labels....I guess that's why I never researched empaths. Good luck :)
