I don't sleep much at night.
I have enormous trouble remembering people's names. Even people I really like. I'm obliged to use the terms darling and mate a lot. I have no trouble at all remembering the names of dogs, however. Maybe because I like dogs more than I like people.
I have an embarrassing tendency to acquire the accents of people I am in company with. People think I am being pretentious, or worse, taking the piss, but I honestly can't help it.
I see things. People, mostly. People who aren't really there. They don't talk to me or interact in any way. They just go about their business, often over and over again, and I can see them, usually in my peripheral vision. If I look at them directly, they mostly disappear. This has been happening all my life.
When alone, I have a tendency to live so completely in my head that I lose all awareness of the Real World. A day can go by and I won't be able to tell you anything about it. I have been known to fall down stairs because I have forgotten that I was walking down them, and stepped straight out into space.
I am an empath. I often feel the emotions of other people, as if they were my own. This is much more problematic than it sounds. I spend a lot of time trying to work out which emotions are mine, and which are coming from outside. Parties can be overwhelming.
I'm reluctant to tag, but if you're so inclined, do the meme. It's quite enlightening. I'm even weirder than I thought....
