Here is a little history before I get to the question. I have always been able to feel others emotions, illnesses and pains for as long as I can remember, but my strongest connection has always been with my mom. My entire life I have been able to feel what she does and feel the same symptoms from illnesses before without having to be any where around her. We have even been able to communicate with each other telepathically.
October of last year she was diagnosed with cancer. I didn't have any of her symptoms from it but I did have some of her side effects for her treatments. Instead of my mom having to deal with the nausea and vomiting after treatments I did. There were a few other things as well but they seemed to happen to both of us such has lack of appetite, a horrible metallic taste, and a lack of energy. Thankfully her treatments worked and got rid of the cancer. We recently found out that it has come back and I am noticing that since she has started treatments again that the same thing is happening this time.
After experiencing this I wondered if anyone else has ever had someone else's side effects from medicines or treatments of some kind? If so were they able to make it stop, and how?
I have to admit that I feel a little guilty for wanting it to stop, but I also know that I can't truly help her like she needs if I am not feeling my best.
