All my life strange things have happened to me. I could feel what others close to me where feeling and I'd have strange nightmares and bits of them would come true that next day. I was always able to tell myself that I just had an active imagination, or I was really close to a person so of course I would be able to know how they were feeling, I knew what they were like. I've always been a skeptic, and I suppose I still am to some degree.
I started to think that maybe something was different with me when I was 18. My psychology teacher had assigned us an experiment. We were supposed to take away one sense and then chart how we felt. It was partly to help us empathize with the blind and deaf. Canceling out my hearing didn't really work because my sister had a group of friends over and no amount of earplugs is going to totally cancel out the noise 5 teenagers can make. However when I blindfolded myself something strange happened, my sense of touch went haywire. By holding out my hand I was able to sense where everyone was in the room. I thought it was normal, I told myself my sense of hearing must be able to pick them up, but to prove I was wrong my mom conducted her own experiment. I left the room and she instructed my sisters friends to all hide or stand perfectly still, then she led me back in the room, and told me to "do my hand thing". So I did. I was able to tell where each one of them was. My palms felt warm and my fingers got tingly when they were pointed in front of someone feet away. I got a little scared, so we did the experiment again, and again, until we had done it over 10 times in 4 different rooms. My mom instructing people to move or to not be there. One time I thought I had failed because I hadn't sensed anyone, it turned out no one was in the large room. Every single test I passed 100% correct. So others wanted to try, and they guessed wrong more times than right. After a bit I dismissed this event and didn't tell anyone, I was scared of what they might think, to tell the truth I was scared of what I thought.
Nothing major happened until a few months ago. The whole day I had had a terrible, head splitting headache so I decided to do something I never did turn off my phone and... Take a nap. The sleep wasn't very peaceful because I had a realistic nightmare where my mom was on my grandpa's farm next to the fence, she had a gun in one hand and was talking to me on the phone telling me she was going to kill herself. In the 3 hour nightmare I tried to talk my mom out of it, but it ended with her pulling the trigger and the ambulance arriving to take her to the hospital. When I woke up there were a lot of missed calls and a text message on my phone from my mom saying "I'm at the hospital, call me." I started crying and shaking. I called my mom and she told me my grandpa was out working on the fence on his farm and had had a heart attack and died. He was at the hospital now, but there was nothing they could do.
I've started to take my whatever you call this seriously now, but I can't find out what I am. There's no catagory. I can't read others minds, I've never seen a ghost. What am I? Please help. I'm also scared because I had a nightmare last night that I can't remember and when I woke up blood started to drip out of my nose (something that never happens to me). My mom and sister are safe, but I would really like more information.
