Other People's thoughts
I find it very odd how similar your beginning has been. I am in college right now and I find it so odd I can hear voices. I know I'm not crazy! But it really effects my school work and ability to concentrate. I find my mind wandering off to hearing what other people are thinking. It's very strange. And then I find myself having conversations with them telepathically and next thing I know I'm just zoning off in my head and not concentrating on the outside.
I know it sounds very insane, but I swear I'm normal! I never talk to people about this because of the taboo it has on society. And it just makes me feel weird. I also find myself trying to suppress this "gift" with alcohol.
If you know of any groups I could join, or other people that experience similar things, that would be really awesome.
