    i'm not sure if thihs happens to anyone else, but i find myself dependent on the movies that trigger me.

    if i find myself not watching them, i actually get withdrawal from them and need to watch them- even though they are making me worse anyway.

    what on earth is going on?. and what can i do to stop this

    I'm similar to a small extent. I find that as all films are cast using perfect looking people and good things always happen to the good guys, it makes any normal situation real life seem so much worse.
    i suppose i like seeing the right thing, any i get down when its not at all like real life :(

    maybe its not the movies but the emotions they give you. if you are numb a lot of times, as bad as triggering is, maybe it makes you feel alive and thats the feeling you crave. i have probs with emotional numbness and detachment and sometimes crave feeling "alive" and as much as it hurts, you will get that feeling...almost as a form of self harm.

    just guessing...could be total bs...but thats just my take on it...

    those are good observations

    in fact, i wouldn't be surprised if that's correct

    sounds really logical
