- When my T (an older man) says my name
- certain sexual acts that I cannot do
- Gentle sex that involves caressing
- Hearing certain words that pertain to being disciplined (i.e. sp-nk, nau--ty, b-d girl, etc.)
- The tone of voice of an angry man
- Seeing a naked female baby or toddler

I am sure there are more but these are at the top of my head. Thought I would share. Helps to read others`.

Star Wars (or anything associated with it)
Breathing or being kissed on or around my neck (something I used to love... He ruined it for me... a**hole)
Sometimes being f**gered will REALLY trigger me
S*x in general is triggering although not as bad as it once was... It is weird, it is usually hard for me to have s*x or to "get started" but once we start it is tolerable but then at other times during the middle of it I will just FREAK out and like cry and start to shake or I will just "blank out" and go inside of myself. My response varies and I never know how I will react so it is hard for me to have it now because I never know how I will react and it is embarrassing. :cry:/>/>
Guys who look or sound a certain way (voice tone I mean)
Guys with a certain name.....
I have to stop I am starting to trigger myself.... :scared:/>/>
Thanks for this thread by the way! ♥♥♥♥ :thumbsup:/>/>
Okay, well I now have more... I was r*ped again back in September of 2012 and all of the prior triggers were from December 2011 and before.
Anyway here's new triggers:
The 'cabin' (where it took place)
Anything that reminds me of him (my dad is best friends with him. Still...)
The numbers 22 and 29. (They are dates.) 12/29/11 and 09/22/12...
Just, lately I have this 'feeling' of something in my head that needs to be known and I can almost sense it but it's not there. I KNOW that probably made no sense at all haha.
I don't know, there are others... I'll add more later.
Oh, belts sometimes and tickling sometimes. Just a lot of spontaneous and unpredictable things.

I get nightmares of prisoners of Alcatraz appearing randomly anywhere. :unsure:/>
And now, some kind of bald heads too.

Mazdas.... or green cars --- Green is my favorite color, but now green cars remind me of my x-husband
The phrase "I'm crazy about you".... reminds me of being assaulted the 3rd time in my teens
Laying down to bed, especially if I'm not tired --- this probably sounds weird... but more often then not, I trigger when I lay down to sleep....... beds in general can be a serious trigger
Being around children who were the age I was when I was abused.
.... I probably have a lot more to add, but that's all I can say right now.

- the who song 'behind blue eyes' he said it was about him and me (god i wish i didn't have his blue eyes)
- seeing girls sitting on their father's knee
- doors being slightly open at night
- the dark (so terrified of the dark)
Posted 04 May 2013 - 08:31 AM
- people touching or breathing on my neck (especially the back or left side)
- cuddling in beds
- blankets being pulled over my head
- people touching my left hip
- going to my friend's house where it happened
- seeing pictures of him
- sexual assault in movies
I guess most of them aren't that weird, I dunno, but some days it's hard to take the train because of the lights.
