At first I couldn't control what I could do at all. I would receive random thoughts and emotions from people and at one point I thought I was going insane. It got so overwhelming and after a while receiving everyone's thoughts and emotions started to make me really sick. I even stopped eating. I couldn't be around people anymore it was just too much for me to handle. At some times when I felt really sick I would stay home from school and I stopped going to the cafeteria during lunch. After a long time of dealing with all this I finally found help from someone on this sight who gave me some really good techniques to use to be able to block out everyone else's thoughts and emotions.
Eventually things got better and I could finally manage to be around people again. It seemed like everything was going to be ok. Just recently though I've come across a new problem. Somehow I'm putting thoughts into other people's minds. They don't know it's not their thought, they think it's their own which could end up turning into a very bad situation. I first realized that this was happening when people would say the same exact thing I was thinking before I could say it. Then I realized that if I wanted a teacher to call on me in class all I had to do was think it and I was guaranteed to be called on. The bad thing about that though was if I didn't want to be called on and thought about it I would draw attention to myself and would get called on. After a while I started putting thoughts into people's minds without even meaning to. If I was mad at someone I could accidently make a whole group of my friends mad at them too even if they didn't have a single reason to be. The person this happened to the most was my very close friend who is practically like a brother. He's one of the only people who knows about my "special gift" so I was able to tell him that it wasn't his thought as soon as I realized I mistakenly put one in his head. It makes me feel awful to know that I can do stuff like this to people. Manipulate them into doing things.
Also ever since this has started happening my friend I mentioned earlier has changed. I'm worried that if I'm around a certain person to much I might start having a long term effect on them. I tend to attract a lot of spirits and things like that and now my friend seems to suddenly start attracting a lot of spirits and none of them are good. One in particular tries to take over him. Is this my fault? I can't even begin to tell you how horrible I feel and how disgusted I am with myself. Am I really just a hazard to people?
