    Hi and welcome to the forum. Trigger is a warning basically if there is something upsetting in a post. And a trigger could be different for different people... so for example a trigger for me could be umm... blood. So if a topic will have something that could upset someone, you just put trigger in the title to warn people.

    Hope that answers your question, and again, welcome. =)

    welcome
    and a trigger is something that could trigger a person to self harm, feel sad, cry, anger, depressed, wanna suicide. Things like talking about cutting and how could trigger a self harmer for example :) so threads have warnings on them to let people know if they are feeling particulary vulnerable

    Grace,
    First of all I would like to welcome you to the forum. I hope that you find all the support and friends that you need here. If you ever need to talk feel free to send me a pm and I will get back to you as soon as I get it. Trigger means that it is about something that could have happened to you and put you back in that place. You do not really want to view something that comes with the warning Trigger unless you are feeling safe and are okay at that moment. Once again welcome to the forum. Take care and I love you. :hug: :cheekkiss :hug: :cheekkiss :hug: :cheekkiss :hug: :cheekkiss

    With Love,
    Crystal :hug: :cheekkiss
