It sounds like you could be suffering depression which manifests when you see other peoples pain. How are you sleeping? Lack of sleep can cause depression like you've described. Whatever the cause, go see your doctor & get help before it ruins your life.

You seem like you have a huge heart, but you are right, it is debilitating you. You have to learn to control yourself. There are self-help books on how to control your emotions. Try some deep breathing and look at the situation differently. The kid getting the mom's attention for example. Was the mom busy, because the kid has to learn that interrupting people is not the right way to do things. They have to learn patience and if they are always addressed when the mom is busy, then the kid will begin to think that they can do it whenever they want and to who ever. By addressing the kid immediately, she essentially is making him a rude person in the long run. Try to look at things as a life lesson instead of a sad one.
