My counselor tells me that triggers are normal. I didn't even realize how many I had until she brought them to my attention. The ones I have come to know and expect are as follows: Cologne "not sure which scents, just strong cologne of any kind, male of course" / Large upper body torso / someone saying the word "rape" / Anyone touching or grabbing my arm " even playfully" / The words " You like it don't you" / A man putting his hands on my shoulders or my thighs ( which makes being intimate with anyone near impossible to enjoy) / Watching the white lines passing on the interstate (alot of bad stuff took place in his truck) / Going anywhere deserted looking, even if it is innocent / The meer mention of taking a trip to Lake Conroe / Seeing any kind of physical, emotional or sexual abuse on TV. ( I went to see the movie "Derailed" and I almost threw-up during the rape scene even though I closed my eyes!! / certain songs on the radio, I'm not sure which ones until they are playing already / And any man in a plain white t-shirt or a white tank top . . . . Thats all I can think of at the moment, but I would really like to know if anyone else has these feelings and what sets them off. Please

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
