Oh wait now I get what triggers are
Yeah, see, THIS is a trigger. Something that prompts a horrible flashback that makes someone go into a literal panic attack. It is NOT something that makes you slightly uncomfortable, so can we all just stop tossing that word around like it’s nothing.

Reblogging for valuable commentary
I’m not too comfortable with the insinuation that if you don’t have a full panic attack, it’s not really a trigger. Things that trigger me make me feel absolutely awful for a long time, but not into full-blown panic.
