Why do I.......

Keep shocking things and people today? I can't touch anyone. Because I shock them. I open a door. I shock myself. I turn on the water at the sink. I shock myself. Turn on a light. I shock myself. I picked up my fork to eat dinner. I shocked myself. I pick up my keys and shock myself. I'm affrid to touch anything. I even shocked myself touching my laptop!
Has anyone had that issue before?

  • I have the same problem in winter. Every time I touch the car, I cringe because I know I'll be shocked.

  • There's no moisture in the air in your home. You should get a humidifier to help bring moisture back into the air. Dry air conducts electricity, which causes you to shock things as you move over carpets or other surfaces.

  • JazzlikeMraz even on a tile floor. You can conduct a current like that with no socks on? Never thought about that.

  • Low humidity. Do you live in the desert or just going through a dry spell?
