Just a Friendly Reminder
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.
