Many people are very sensitive to their surroundings. Ever since he was a little boy, one of my sons was greatly troubled by his surroundings. He could not stand excessive noise, shopping centres, traffic, loud music, the hustle and bustle of school life. Even as an adult, just walking into a shopping centre is too much for him but he has learned to cope.
When he was growing up there was no word for him. Today we would say he was 'highly sensitive'.
Highly sensitive people are also referred to as Empaths. These people can take on the feelings of others. They can be overwhelmed by these feelings and those of all around them. Sometimes they then become ill themselves. Illnesses they get are often Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. These have been known in the past as mysterious illness. Although the people have physical symptoms, sometimes severe physical symptoms, their illnesses do not show up in any diagnostic test.
Psychologists are now recognizing that 10% of people are highly sensitive and there is an awareness that these people can sense more than the average person. Are you one of these people? Listen to the video for more information abouthighly sensitive people.
