    I was wondering if anyone else ever gets triggered by the smallest things? One of the main things for me is counting in Mississippi's... it's such an odd thing but I can't bring myself to do it and it makes me feel physically sick to do it... it's a long story... but I was wondering if anyone else had something like this or if I'm just odd :unsure:

    Counting what in "Mississippi" I think there was a word left out.....

    I meant like one Mississippi, two Mississippi etc... so that the timing works out to be roughly a second for each... sorry I didn't make that very clear :unsure:

    OIC, so that is you trademark that gets your worke up and crazed anxiety?

    Mine is more.....coutning calories...I divide them until there is no other dividend and then I do a written version and then change the scenerio in my head.

    So how do you do it...you time yourself? DO you have a watch with a seconds timer so you can measure a half a second?

    no i wanna know. so if they start saying " 1 mississippi......2 mississippi etc " then you start to get paranoid?

    does it have to have the word mississippi?

    Erm yeah.. it's just to do with the past and stuff.. and the use of that, I just wondered if I was alone in being messed up by something that seems so harmless...

    I can't look at pictures of people I know. Crazy thing is they are everywhere! All over the walls and on furniture. I can't take them down cause my mom would be angry so I just look down while I pass them or move the few that are regularly in my sight to different places.

    Errg.. to explain it I have to go into the details of what is triggering about the whole thing and I kinda don't want to sorry :sad: I just wanted to know if things other than... seeing/ hearing references to actualy things like rape or suicide actually triggered other people...

    oic, i understand...i think everyone has different types of triggers. my former psych said my triggers --and the perceptions of them crossed into psychotic......i think it some ways, it's a good thing we have triggers otherwise we don't know there is something wrong.....right?

    i'm just thinking out loud here....

    I overreact to things, not sure if it counts as a trigger. I get very depressed and lonely when I feel ignored online. Ridiculous, I know.

    Not sure if this is a trigger either, but I hate hearing the end of a pencil scratching against the paper (you know when the eraser is almost gone?). It hurts my ears SO DAMN much. XD It

    I get unreasonably upset when anyone makes a mess in the house. And also with people who talk to themselves, and phone calls, and myself.

    Me too. I have literally felt suicidal for hours after somebody has made a mess, especially if I have just cleaned up. But - of course - as my mum and brother don't take my depression seriously they really don't care how I feel about certain things, and why should they I guess. I'm almost 27 I should be living by myself at this age, not living with family and expecting them to tread on eggshells around me. :(

    - I get upset when people call me out on something.
    - I get upset when people react (i.e. if I have been out of line, I think 'how dare he/she have the guts to stand up to me'. heh. Like I'm God or something?).
    - I get upset when I am in the wrong in the first place.
