    I think someone is triggering me, and I don't know that to do

    (Please bear with me, English isn't my first language so I'm so, so sorry if I make any mistake) I've been dealing with social anxiety from a couple of years now (I was 14, now I'm 21), for the most part I can control it as long as nobody pushes me to do things unexpectedly, just give me some...

    Mind splurge about suicide - triggering

    Suicide. Suicidal thoughts. They are words you hear so much when dealing with depression, anxiety or pretty much any mental health issue. Every time you google something you’re feeling just so you can try to feel less alone. Almost every time you have to go to speak to your...

    I've found that my voices are the worst whenever I'm eating. I might be slightly neurotic about eating and thus this happens, but I was wondering if anybody else gets this too. Is eating a big voices trigger for anyone, and if so, how do you deal with it?

    Am I experiencing ptsd?

    Suggest me medicine.

    I can't see a psychiatrist because it's too costly for my family. I haven't been diagnosed so I don't know what meds I should take. But it doesn't take Einstein to know Im depressed. Ive been shutting myself up in my home for two years now. I took a break from school because I just can't face...

    Triggers and Personal Responsibility [with Trigger Warning]

    WARNING: This post is about triggers, so some may be triggered by the discussion. The problem with my trigger warning is that it contained the trigger in question. Maybe that's not an issue. I could be wrong. I think that, to a large degree, we adults should take some responsibility for our...

    ED Trigger At Work

    So one of my co-workers at my new job looks like she might be anorexic. She looks completely emaciated, and I am worried this might become a trigger for me, as I also struggle with eating issues.

    Everything is triggering my obsessions...

    I had done well for years by avoiding my main obsessive triggers (the news, political talk, crime shows) but over the last 3 months EVERYTHING seems to be a trigger. The first obsessive episode after years in remission was trigger by a coworker asking me if I knew what Buddhists believe about a...

    How can you talk about how you feel and what ya thinking about. If you can't use words that trigger some one. I can't talk about things if ya cant say. Because I really don't want to trigger any one. So frustrating. :unsure:

    Was I ever ok?

    It seems like a long time since my mental health became the topic of everything in my mind. I've been trying to look back at my life and see if there was a starting point, to see if it has always been this way, to try to remember how things used to feel and how I used to think. Having been...

    Kicked out of another internet support group

    I got kicked out of another internet support group for merely questioning their rules. I thought it was ridiculous to have to put "trigger warning" on nearly everything before posting. Someone was talking about divorce, and it required a trigger warning. I said they were over protecting people...
