Simply, name your oddest trigger.
Mine is Dance Dance Revolution.
What do you mean by "weirdest trigger"? I'm a little bit confused. Please clarify for me
Note: I freaking LOVE DDR
if you mean self-harm then it was a scene in a harry potter film for me
its weird because im a harry potter fan
this is gonna sound really weird.. because i think it is my self. even though I understand why these two things trigger me but they are:
birds and mirrors at night
I cant stand to have a mirror facing me whilst im sleeping or in the dark
By "weirdest trigger" I mean a trigger [for self-harm or suicidal thoughts or whatever] that seems completely illogical. Dance Dance Revolution is a video game... a non-violent, family-frinedly video game. It oughtn't make me want to kill myself.
However, I do know exactly why it triggers me, I have a specific memory of abandonment related to it.
I used to get really freaked out by big toilet bowls when I was younger...
The song 'born slippy' by underworld.
lilac bushes and the scent of lilacs.
televisions when they're turned off and the sound of keys.
"you had me at hello" by "a day to remember"
"three cheers for five years" by "mayday parade"
when youre on the second story of a mall and the only thing thats a barrier from you and falling is a glass "wall".
i dont think theyre all so weird though :X
Newest one has been eating food (!?).
But "Gone Away" by the Offspring triggers flashbacks,
"The Departure" on the Gattaca soundtrack triggers suicide,
The Land Before Time soundtrack makes me regress into a sentimental puddle of impotent goo. "Aww," I think, "wouldn't it be grand to be a little kid again and have a do over."
trying to fall asleep without my radio on at night. No Joke :blink:
Actually, that one isn't surprising to me. I go into a right panic when my mind clears at all. Before this latest mood crash I was trying to get into meditating, but I can't do that without nearly getting a panic attack.
Gentle lady's lilac one is sad, to be triggered by a flower. It's my favourite flower, too.
I hadn't thought about songs, but there's a whole bunch of songs that trigger me.
Seeing any sort of silverware wrapped so that only the point sticks out and the handle is covered, knowing there are nuts in my house
The word idiot whether it is directed at me or anyone else, even a complete stranger. If and when I hear the word the trigger is instantaneous. Wow even typing it is difficult.
A song about the Vietnam War by Pink. And i have no idea why :/
