Triggers

Triggers absolutely suck! Sometimes just hearing the word “trigger” triggers me. I think that for me, triggers are one of the hardest things to deal with from this whole thing. I find them so hard to understand. Some days I could be frozen and crippled from the feelings of a trigger where other days I am fine. Why can I face a trigger one day and all of a sudden on another occasion, I am completely broken down. I think that society doesn’t understand the impact of triggers as well. I have heard people use the word rape like its nothing when they are not aware that just the word can send someone spiralling down. A song, a street, a name….anything can be a trigger but of course thats pretty much impossible to be constantly aware of. Just mentioning what triggers may be.
