This post (and the attending comments) would have been so, so helpful this summer, when I was looking around online for information about anxiety and how to manage it. My anxiety was exponentially increased by the anxiety of others. I would imagine myself as a human shield, and everything coming from the other person would be deflected away, unable to get inside me. I still do this occasionally if I catch myself over-empathizing.
