I have noticed I pick up on others emotions, for the last couple of years. I usually shrug it off thinking I'm just imagining it but a few months ago I was on my way home. I was completly calm, I wasn't stressed, and nothing specific happened that could trigger anxiety. I was just sitting calmly when my heart started beating faster. I tried not paying attention to it as it continued gaining speed. I then started shaking and I felt really nervous and my breath was coming out uneven. I tried calming myself and started listening to music. I walked home quickly when I saw my dad and I broke down. I started sobbing and shaking and I say to him "something has happened and I don't know what."And I'm shaking out of controll sobbing to myself.
A few minutes later my dad's phone rings and he answers saying that it was my mom on the phone. When he then hangs up he says my mom couldn't find my aunt at the airport who flew across the globe to visit us. Her flight had arrived without her and my mom had ran around asking and trying to get into contact with her. My mom had been really worried and upset. When I finally calmed down my mom texted my dad saying they found her, that she had missed her flight.
I don't know what to think, maybe I'm overthinking it. But I can't help but think that me and my mom might have a strong emotional bond since we're close... But maybe it's just a coincident?!
Any comments/idea's? Small other events have happened but this was one of the "biggest"ones. I can go into a places I have never been before and panic and have to go out. It's like a surg of energy and/or emotion I can't handle and have to leave.
Sorry if this sounds crazy, just wanted to know what others thought...
