Random High School Triggers
Triggers from this year in high school:
- Psych class - trigger nightmare from talking about Freud to our teacher questioning the validity of DID
- The Secret in their Eyes - wonderful and extremely graphic movie my language teacher decided to show the class, complete with a graphic rape scene at the beginning (her rationale: "If I just turn the video part off, it's not graphic!")
- History teacher coming into school with lots cuts and bruises on her body one week - this was by far the worst because my irrational brain in PTSD mode made me terrified that something bad had happened to her (even though it didn't - she fell while running, someone told me a week later)
- Rapes "jokes" - in the hallways, online, everywhere ...
So there you have it. High school is not trigger-proofed, folks. Not even close.
