Since I’ve been seeing a post with some really bad information going around.
Triggers are not exclusive to PTSD; People with depression can have triggers, people with schizophrenia can have triggers, people with anxiety disorders and phobias can have triggers.
Triggers do not only cause panic attacks, they can cause relapses into addictions, bouts of depression, and numerous other unhealthy symptoms.
To quote my therapist on the subject:
Triggers are things that happen to us that are likely to set off a chain reaction of unhelpful behaviors, thoughts, or feelings.
It always bothered me when those posts go around about triggers only being for PTSD and PTSD symptoms. Because I have a lot of things that are not really related to my PTSD flashabcks and stuff, so if I come across something that sparks my anxiety or eating disorder or depression am I suddenly supposed to try to come up with a new vocabulary word to differentiate each one?
While I understand the concept is not to reduce the word to a mundane thing when it was used to describe something that is not mundane… I really dislike the policing of triggers and of the word itself to be so narrow.
Similarly like those posts going around showing Sergeant Calhoun experiencing her “dynamite gal” visual flashbacks and claiming that’s all a flashback is. When I have bodily flashbacks that don’t always come with images or context, but my body reacts regardless. To see the posts though, it would seem as though I don’t have “valid” flashbacks or something because they do not always have visual accompaniments. So. Yeah.
So this message, important.

I think this is really important to remember. EVERYONE needs to know that they have these options, but I can also understand how someone might prefer to not press charges or even go to the hospital because they just want to forget it ever happened. What’s important is that someone understands that they don’t NEED to go to the hospital or they don’t NEED to go to the police or they don’t NEED to just go home.
Someone get this guy a fucking medal.
They made birth control for men. However it never got past the clinical testing stage because its side effects were things like “moodiness, extreme cramping, hunger, increased sexual drive” and were considered INHUMANE.
