A close friend of mine thinks that someone is manipulating her thoughts and emotions. She thinks this person is telepathically communicating with her. She says this has been going on for over a year.
At some point, I determined to stay unbiased about the “objective truth” of it all. It didn’t matter whether any of what she said actually happened. It only mattered that she was struggling in non-visible ways, and that this was how she interpreted those struggles.
Recently, her telepathic affairs have been climaxing. She’s been struggling harder to get out of her telepathic relationship, and this person’s telepathic resilience and manipulation has intensified. I try to advise her, and I’ve pressed her for more explanation. There seems to be no answer to her situation.
I’m finally trying to understand, in my own terms, what she’s going through. Science has not been able to replicate telepathy. Many cases of reported telepathy turned out to be symptoms of psychosis. Anti-psychotic medication has been successful in reducing these delusions. On the other hand, a certain blog writes about how one may block out unwanted telepathic communication. At the bottom, it appears that people have commented, expressing their grievance, confusion, or assuagement.
I’m torn because I want to be able to help her in a more involved way. I don’t know if advising her to fight telepathically is the answer, or referring her to a psychiatrist for diagnosis and medication.
