Gateway to Cyclops Hell

Normal people: “Why are you crying?”
Me: “ARE YOU STUPID?! HER M-M-MOM JUST” *sniff* “got d-d-diagnosed with CANCER!!” *Bursts into sobs”
Normal People: “Oh, she’s writing.” *backs out of room slowly*

Ugh…I remember crying in my sleep because I was thinking of possible endings for my novel ._.

I actually have something even worse than this; I don’t just feel sad FOR the characters, I feel what they’re feeling. I sometimes implant myself into a character’s psyche itself, to better write for it, and comprehend it. Even if they brain and beliefs far different from mine, I sort of ‘sync’ with an entirely different mindset to understand’ them, which may sound weird since they are my characters, but since I really try to make the characters being almost entirely ‘living’ beings on their own, making choices and actions that’d make sense to them but not me/what I or the audience would want, it’s something I force myself to do.
Sadly this means whenever I get to writing for certain characters with particularly grim or screwed up mindsets or trauma, I tend to sync a little TOO well and I have problems for a few days afterward, akin to however that character in particular thinks.
Thusly when writing for characters like Deiver, Simon Says, etc, I always keep my emergency meds for episode on hand.
