Every time I read or watch the emotional or mental pain of certain characters in particular settings (cliché), I quickly feel momentary pain coursing through my arm from the mere understanding of their side in the story. Am I reading too much, like subconsciously associating past experiences with fictional personas? Funny, their situations are not remotely close to mine, so I don't know if its misguided empathy or something else. I don't know what you call this condition, but indeed, there is this quick prick or heaviness in the chest or heart along with the slight electrifying surge in my right arm. Anyone what I'm experiencing as of lately? It is an interesting experience, not gonna lie. Makes me feel... alive, I guess? A little discomforting, though.
