Boxing, blue eyes, swords, athletic thighs, red baseball caps, pressure on my chest, facial expressions of a person exerting strength, male sex sounds, certain gaits, rape scenes. Had a really rough day today.

The more I think about this the more triggers I realize I have. 

earthy colones

thin lips

big glasses

Talk of "alleged"  rape victims in the media that cast doubt on the accuser

anything by Oakley the athletic company

libraries

bunk beds

Jean shorts

Turning my back to the door while sleeping alone

Rape or assault scenes in movies

News stories about young girls raped at parties

I can't watch most tv that has a lot of violence or sexual assault of any sort.

DID as seen in popular culture,  mental health portrayals in general. 

We have DID and feel personally attacked by those common attitudes 

PTSD as popularized as exclusively for war veterans.  Yes, it is horrible and they do suffer a great deal,  but so do all us others with PTSD. We are just as valid.

Definitely most of us have triggers. It is good to know I am not alone and neither are you.

My current triggers are: rude and bossy people. It takes me back to times when I felt I was not good enough.
