Ever since I was able to crawl I have seen spirits. My mom use to tell me stories about how I would tell her things about people from the past or hear people that were never there. I am 16 now and I see spirits all the time. I can see orbs and figures, sometimes just black shadows but sometimes more, like faces, I can sense or see if it's a male or female. A few times I have been able to sit down and hear them or hear something about who they are but I don't know how to do it all the time. I can feel their energy when they are by me and I feel sick to my stomach when I know it's something bad. I hear them call my name, it's really hard to understand them but I know they say my name. I get waken up in the middle of the night by spirits talking to me or I feel them, and its gotten really hard for me to sleep. Sometimes I feel weird or like an outcast because no one sees what I see and I can't tell anyone or they will think I'm a freak or something. There is no one to talk to about what goes on or to explain what I see. It's really hard sometimes to deal with everything. I am also an empathetic, and I really don't know how to control it. My emotions are everywhere, I can walk into a room or meet someone and my emotions can change in a second, and I know it's not me but I don't know how to control it. My mom tried putting me on meds but they don't help. My mom tries to help me a lot but she doesn't understand. I use to go to her at night crying because things scared me but she didn't know what to do. I really want to be able to control everything more but I don't know how to.
