Depression. It fluctuates like a fish out of water. The flapping can hit other people nearby. They can catch whatever you feel, and as a result, it can magnify.

Emotions are highly contagious only among highly emotional people.

And not feel my sorrow's share?
Can a father see his child
Weep, nor be with sorrow fill'd?
(from "On Another's Sorrow")
