Yeah, I feel this way all the time. I don't like looking people in the eyes unless my mind is completely empty, so they can't see what I'm thinking. And it happens both ways - if I look at someone else's eyes, sometimes I get these quick flashes of images and words, like I'm peering into their mind.

as well. I feel like some of these thoughts give off an energy, and I really wouldn't want people to pick up on it, it feels very intrusive, like I have no privacy.
I just want to isolate myself when this happens. I hate feeling this anxiety and shame, I don't know how to protect my mind, the only thing I can do is look away or think of nothing.
