reason i ask is i find that my husband is a trigger to the ptsd by the verbal abuse,name calling,cut downs, degrading,laughing, sounding and acted just like my mother, and i know for me it is a trigger and i instantly fly into a rage,wanting to hit him, he just doesn\'t understand why i\'m so emotional about it. he admits though he knows they are \"my buttons\",and it\'s normal to purposely push your partners buttons when mad. people these are not just my mad buttons they are buttons that can start a damn WAR !!! am i over-reacting? now my trigger\'s as in how my 3 year old daughter sets them off, she is developmentally delayed with bad behavior and releases her anger by beating her head forwards and backwards into the floor, carpet, kitchen floor being the worse because the sound it makes is the sound i heard for years when i was sat on and had my head beat into the floor, or sat on and queezed around the neck untill i pasted out, so everytime she hits her head, i feel rage AGAIN well up in me, i get so angry just by the sound,and i have to leave the room to remain calm. daily i live with trigger\'s between the two. i know this is now and not my past but i\'m very sensitive to sounds or degrading comments. thanks for reading.
