I've noticed that lately, my anxiety and depression is feeding directly off of others. Like last night my mom was in a really bad mood, and it made me feel so bad that my mood did a complete 180. Tonight my fiance's mom was bitching and yelling at the nurses at the nursing home where he is to the point where it gave me a migraine and an anxiety attack. After she left I was able to just talk to the nurses and resolve the problem. The she called me and continued to rant! Unbelievable! Anybody have any suggestions on how to not feed off of other peoples emotions? I do it to the point where it makes me ill. Even if I know the other people are ridiculous (e.g. mother in law!)
