My trigger music -__- - January 22nd 2011, 08:09 PM

My favorite songs, also happen to be trigger songs. I know how weird that must sound [ i think it sounds a little weird, and I'm talking about myself! ] I've pretty much learned to deal with it, and the trigger happens less the more I listen to the songs. [once again.. kinda weird sounding.] Does anyone else kinda have that, or am I alone in that? -_-

It's totally not weird at all. =]
When I first started, all of my favorite songs and bands were triggers for me too. I grew apart from those songs and got better, but even now, my favorite band is one of my worst triggers. I also find that the more I listen, the less anxious or "triggered" I feel.

I know EXACTLY how you feel :/ I can't even listen to Linkin Park anymore Luckily I'm more into pop music now which is less triggering, I actually think a part of me forced myself to like less triggering music :/

Pop music is okay, I'd rather listen to metal though.

It fades away after a while I find that I just get a shiver down my spine now.

One of my favorite songs is a trigger. But that's what I like best about it. I'm sick.

I'd have to say I'm a bit of the reverse. Many of my favourite songs are the type I'd attribute to this, but they don't trigger me. Instead, feeling like I'm wanting to SH makes me want to listen to those songs.

That's relatable. We're all sick in our own special ways

I used to find that sometimes even the most random songs would trigger me in the most horrific ways.





And when I'm not sure how to try,
Who will take my hand?

I'm like Jenna. I listen to bands like evanescence and for some reason it makes me feel less triggered.
