cigarettee smoke (scent on clothes, breath, hair, anything), alcohol of almost any sort other than wine, raised hands/fists, long haired men with long beards, being touched, talk about s*x, any form of s*x on tv/movie, hearing "i love you...." "....prove it", closets that have doors, pain, not being able to breathe, being sat on, having a person over the top of me, and right now almost all movies or tv shows

Law and Order SVU can be triggering as well, especially the very violent episodes.
Yeah, both of those trigger me as well...
I'm never going to get a complete list I always forget and have to add things! I give up... :(/>

But I think this one is a trigger, and a really weird one...
Shrek 2... Dinner scene... Shrek and the chicken! I felt physically sick and very tired and very tense!
I can watch r*pe scenes in movies without it bothering me too much...
I can to some extend read about it without it bothering me too much...
And then I have a problem with Shrek...?!

The smell of wheat germ oil and honey shampoo

Someone too close to my face and speaking really loudly is a major trigger for me...they are lucky to get one warning before i strike.

guys with dark hair
