But seriously, go to a doctor. Go to a scientist. Go to ANYONE. Show them this exact situation. Of course people can't know everything if you are keeping your super powers to yourself. Go get studied. If you really do have some magic connection to batteries, science would love to know about it.
Really though it sounds like you can a mental disorder, not a battery problem.
You know I seem to recall several illnesses that people used to call mental disorders... ever heard of Ulcers? Parkinsons? Multiple Sclerosis? Actually, almost every ailment has been considered psychosomatic at one point or another. The fact is that we only call things "mental disorders" until we find out what is actually going on. The huge problem is that more people would rather tell someone it's all in their head then try to figure out what is happening.
I suffer from a complex neuro-immune disease called CFIDS (Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome) in the USA, and ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) in the rest of the world.
I've been told that I have the same level of health as someone who is about 1 month away from dieing with AIDS. I have been told I have everything from Atypical Multiple Sclerosis, to HIV Negative AIDS. There are estimated to be over 20 million people with this illness. It is described as being as disabling as AIDS and MS combined. Clinicians who work with patients say they would rather have AIDS because they have a much higher quality of life because of available treatments. Even our own government has linked the disease to a gamma Retrovirus (like HIV) called XMRV.
So you would think that doctors would be very interested in a disease like this right? I mean I can't even hold batteries. Sometimes wireless mice stop responding for me, but no one else. Not to mention the nearly endless amount of other symptoms like horrendous body wide pain and post-exertional malaise that is so intense sometimes even just a phone conversation can leave me shaking and confused for hours, or even days.
Well it turns out that over the last 50 years (ME was first classified as a neurological disease under the WHO in 1968) people have been more interested in telling people that it's all in their heads than doing actual scientific research. In the UK if you get a diagnosis of ME you're likely to be sanctioned to a mental hospital where you're "treated" to death.
It's always better to research and learn, than to dismiss as "mental" or ignorant. It is extremely important that people open their minds to unlimited possibilities so that a yearning to understand takes president over a yearning to be right.
