Default triggers.

What triggers you to remember the bad elements of the abuse you went through?
For me, basements, the smell of bleach, and hearing glasses shatter and belts snap are the worst.

Edit: forgot to add that I hate when people touch anywhere below my shoulders while I'm sleeping.

The most common for me are the song Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye and the film Men In Black 2.

Might I ask why if you wish to answer?



For me, my parents screaming at me, or any kind of seething hatrid towards me, will set me off. Brings back awful memories.

I wasn't abused per se, but I was bullied quite badly for a while. But, yeah, I don't know if this "triggers" me or not, but people laughing behind my back (as in literally) and gangs of chavs make me really nervous, now.

loud shouting, kids crying, walking past my old house, seeing my dads car, seeing parents yell at kids, myself crying, the smell of ciggerettes, the smell of lager. Alot of random things.

Slamming doors, kids crying, seeing younger kids that have bruises, sometimes even just a little kid with a sad look on his face, old family photos, and especially adults yelling/shouting/screaming at children. I once berated a woman in public for raising her voice with her child (her son couldn't have been more than six years old); it was pretty embrassing, but she was driving me crazy, we were in a checkout line so i could leave or anything.
