I agree, it does suck. I know what you mean. I had a panic attack once because of how strongly a show resonated in me. I couldn't understand how other people were like "This is so interesting! what is going to happen next!?"
I had to pause and tell the other person I couldn't finish watching it because I thought the show was about me. They didn't understand until I explained what would happen next. We stopped watching it that night and they asked if it was okay if they watched it on their own. I told them it didn't matter... But they did confirm that what I had said was exactly what would go on to happen in the following episodes.
People that haven't experienced that level of trauma find it hard to understand what it's like for someone to feel like they are reliving those horrible experiences.
