Sookie Stackhouse True Blood
Raised by her grandmother alongside her brother Jason after her parents were killed on a bridge in a flash flood. Grew up with people thinking she was crazy, when really she just couldn't handle hearing everyone's thoughts all the time. Her parents once sent her to a therapist as a child. Though Sookie tried to explain she could hear people's thoughts, the therapist convinced herself and Sookie's parents that Sookie could just naturally interpret people's body language. Never really dated anyone because she could always hear the crude, sex-crazed thoughts of her dates. Lived her entire life filtering out people's thoughts until she met vampire Bill Compton whose vamp mind she couldn't hear at all.
