I don't for one moment think there is anything "wrong" with you. You are observing a physical reaction to your surroundings. Equally, this is the
very reason why I never went to clubs or bars more than the couple of times I was dragged by friends in my youth. If you are person becoming aware of
yourself and your connection to the world around you, then you will typically "feel" when something is good for you or in your case, when it is not.
Hyper-sensitive people who are generally equipped to be consciously "plugged in" with the energies around them, will experience exactly what you
described. You may not know what causes it, but you darn sure are aware that it's happening! You are not alone. Ironically, I believe that the
only way someone can experience this, (and we ALL are able to experience this), is if you've spent significant time alone to begin with...meditating,
finding peace, etc. This isn't new age hooey by any means, but in order to recognize a foreigner, one must first be able to recognize his own
countrymen. Same, same. Most people live such hectic, busy lives, that they are not in tune with what energies are theirs and what energies belong
to others. They are so use to experiencing everyone at the same time, that they wouldn't recognize themselves if their lives depended on it. These
people generally have the "I can't be alone" syndrome. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the anti-socials who can't function while
experiencing everyone else at the same time.
While I don't consider myself a recluse, and I do enjoy social events at times, I too find myself being quite exhausted after I've spent a few hours
in the direct presence of others. I have become so aware of what is a "normal" state for me, that when I am in a crowd, the energies I feel can be
described as bees buzzing in my personal space...just like bees, they can be downright annoying at times...equally, some are a joy to be around, like
butterflies almost. Either way, I know it's not me! I just made a post similar to this regarding "special gifts and curses".
My advice is to embrace the fact that you can perceive this. Don't run from it, rather, curb your life to be in the presence of people that don't
make you feel physically drained. There's nothing wrong with changing your life for the better, and I would reject the idea that just because you
feel drained in social situations in bars and clubs, that there is something wrong with you! I could go into the whole affects of music and vibration
on the physical body, but I won't. Suffice it to say, most clubs and bars play music that is frought with destructive frequencies. There is much
evidence in this area, so if you're so inclined, it would be worthy of some research on your part. It may just change your musical tastes in ways
you never expected. Most mainstream music today is....well...it's not good from a physiological standpoint. Then if you throw the actual words into
the mix, which are frequencies all on their own, it's a double whammy. But I digress...
Either way...if it hurts, don't do it. Try something else.
