Unhappy Empathetic Illness?

In the past month I've started having the weirdest problem:
when someone embarrasses themself in front of me, I get physically ill (nauseous, vomiting).

A few days ago, I was watching a rerun on tv and I knew he was about to be embarrassed, and I had to scramble for the remote to keep from vomiting..


I posted on the mental health board, and they suggested coming here..


Does anyone have any idea what's wrong with me?

Re: Empathetic Illness?

Hmmm...That's happened to me on several occasions. I just assumed I was crazy lol. It doesn't happen to me on a regular basis however. So I don't know anything about it really. But at least you're not alone!

Re: Empathetic Illness?

Hi, this has also happened to me before.I was just wondering if you have had any experiences in the past with getting embarrased badly, does anything stick out to you? Because i know with myself, i can really relate to that feeling and sometimes it feels like i may as well be me the one getting embarrased, it affects me so deeply.

Take care,
j
