Anybody else have weird triggers? Want to list them? (yes, *trigger warn*)

*Rape scenes in moves or even sex scenes or talk of sex [in movies or person]
*Sitting too close to people
*Any attention what so ever [even as small as people staring on the bus or sitting next to me even]
*The word 'hurt' directed at me in any way
*Any touching [especially of my legs or my wrist/hand area]

:hug:/> back to you to. wow we have similar triggers. I don't know why the mind works like that but I am the same.

* Suggestions of group sex - I was blackmailed into a gang bang of sorts with three guys. I used to enjoy group sex and now the mere suggestion makes my skin crawl and reminds me of that night.
* Rape scenes in movies

*Class rings (especially with blue stones in them)
*The name "Bryan" (but not Brian)
*Rape scenes in movies/tv/books
*The use of the word rape in the context "I so raped you" or "I totally got raped" referring to VIDEO GAMES :angry:/>
*Mentally challenged people
*House sounds at night
*Being touched in anyway by men other than my father and boyfriend
*Being alone with men I don't know well, especially authority figures
*Not being able to see properly (when I get migraines I can't see and it ads panic to the pain...as if the headache wasn't enough. if you take a low-dose aspirin every morning it can help prevent migraines though. Just thought I'd share that. Sorry)
*His voice, picture, or presence
*Pop-up trailers, especially when they have a yellow/brown color scheme
*The game Chutes and Ladders
*Having my ass grabbed a certain way (my boyfriend learned not to do that real quick...)
*A guy my age that might have gotten hurt too....*guilt*
I didn't realize there were so many....
