I am interpreting and predicting others’ thoughts and emotions, almost unconsciously, every day.
I do not know exactly when it started, but it is regular, constant.
I focus on my husband, friends, colleagues, boss—I think I know what they are thinking, and it is usually negative.
For a while, I thought some more: Do I have some kind of psychic power? Am I just super-emotionally-sensitive? Overly intelligent?
Does it actually stem from anxiety?
It causes me internal stress all the time.
According to brand new research from the Yale Psychology Department, there may be a new-found reason why people with bipolar experience stress from others’ emotional expressions and reactions.
