    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.

    "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."

    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.
