Chapter 4

I told the psychologist about my dreams, visions and how I seemed to cause disasters in the kitchen and melt the telephones. The psychologist wrote down everything I said and then called in my mother at the end of our session. She told my mother that what was happening was normal for some teenagers, especially girls. Poltergeists, or ghosts, seemed to be active when there is a young teenager in the house. The ghosts were usually not the problem; it was my mind causing the problems and that I probably had some sort of telekinesis. This meant that I could cause something to happen, even when I wasn't thinking about it, like the telephone melting.

The thought that I could cause disaster to happen when I wasn't even thinking about it really frightened me. I was afraid I was going to hurt someone unintentionally. When my mother asked what could be done, to stop these things from happening, the doctor prescribed some mild sedatives for me. She said they would help me sleep and keep me calmer. My mother thought this was a great idea but I didn't like the idea of taking any medicine. What I thought didn't matter though. My parents were determined to make the strange happenings in the house come to an end.

I started taking sedatives in the evening and things seemed to calm down around the house. I could be in the kitchen and no matter how upset I became things didn't break or blow up. My parents started to relax and things returned pretty much to normal. That is until my nightmares started becoming more vivid.
