Yes. I am exactly the same way. I mostly just avoid movies now for fear of panic attacks. Even non-violent movies that have cruel characters who say mean or unfair things can get to me. Unexpected scenes sometimes do it, like in "The Last Supper," when the first evil person is invited to dinner and starts being an asshole, the one they kill in self-defense before they start poisoning people, I started screaming and shaking and had to smoke half of a pack of cigarettes to stop crying over the thought that there are actually people in the world who might be like that and might have such horribly unfair ideas. I just went into a blind panic and started screaming
"Kill him, just kill him!!! Oh please kill that motherf*cking c*cks*cking as*hole!!!! Kill him now!!!" even though I consider myself a pacifist in real life and don't even squish bugs. It was like all of the pain of the injustices of the entire world came out of me all at once. I couldn't sing for over a week because I had damaged my voice, and I'm not sure it ever fully recovered. Some notes still have a roughness to them. Certain kinds of violence bother me more than others, and usually it is worse when I can relate to the character being victimized. I didn't know I carried so much rage inside until that incident, because I make a huge effort to be forgiving to everyone who hurts me in real life. I was so terrified of that character's attitudes that my fight response kicked in, which is unusual. It is more normal for me to want to run away from real conflict. It was still a fear response, but since my fear rarely comes out in that form, it was a bit overwhelming.
