I guess I've always known there was something different about me but I've never really ever thought too much about it. When I was younger I was just able to pick up certain things about people and make very accurate assumptions but in the past year everything rapidly changed.
I didn't know what was happening and I thought I was going crazy. I could pick up "signals" from people (that's how I used to explain it) and emotions. I confided in my best friend and told her everything I was experiencing. She then told me I wasn't crazy and she believed me because she was an empath and could feel other's emotions. After we admitted this to each other we bonded or connected and never leave each other's sides. Together we learned what was actually happening, I was picking up bits and pieces of people's thoughts and emotions. Ever since then it's proceeded to advance. I get random thoughts and emotions from other people constantly and can't control it so I get overwhelmed around people and horrible headaches. It's gotten to the point where it's a challenge to eat lunch in the cafeteria at school so I have to leave and eat somewhere alone. I can also dig deeper into people's thoughts and even plant thoughts into people's minds. It takes an extreme amount of effort though. This ability keeps advancing every day and getting more and more overwhelming. On top of that it drains a lot of energy so I feel tired and weak all the time. The worst part is being alone. The only other person who knows is my best friend and my sister (who also has abilities) and both of them have no idea how to help me. I worry about the future and how much worse this is going to get for me if it keeps advancing. I wish I had guidance or someone to tell me how to manage this but for now I can only just deal with it. I'm so lost and confused.
