Well yes.  Animals that are frighten freeze all the time.  People
can be paralyized by over whelming emotions.  It is sort like
approaching the dentist to have your tooth pulled.  Your fear trys to
stop you, but the pain forces you to get closer to the dentist.  If
the mental forces are BALANCED you are frozen so many feet away from
the dentist.

There could also be medical reasons for your observation.  The information
supplied was inadequate to guide you to a source of help.
