Should I watch it? - April 12th 2017, 03:25 AM

I know there is another thread on here about 13 reasons why but this is a different kind of post.
I really want to watch the Netflix series 13 reason why. I am in a very fragile state right now where I have to go to php. How triggering is it? Should I wait until I am more stable? I honestly don't get triggered that easily but I am in a very fragile state to the point I'm about to break any minute.

So should I watch it or wait?


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

I haven't watched it either just because I supress things a lot personally and a trigger could really badly affect me. If you're at a fragile space right now then I recommend you don't because there's some graphic triggering scenes from what I heard.


THE POINT OF SINGULARITY IS NOTHING AS NOTHING BEGAN EVERYTHING
PULSING IN THE EXPAND CONSUME WITHOUT BARRIER OR BORDER
IT IS DARK BECAUSE IT IS THE DARKNESS IT IS OVER BECAUSE IT IS THE END
THERE IS NO SENTRY BECAUSE NONE DARE APPROACH
IT HAS NEVER BEEN AND IT IS ALL THAT EVER WAS
AT THE CENTER YOU DO NOT FIND THE ANSWER
YOU DO NOT FIND YOURSELF THERE IS NO CENTER AND THERE IS NO YOU THERE IS ONLY MADNESS
WE ARE ALL HERE NOW.
WE ARE ALL HERE.
WE ARE.

Honestly I would say wait to watch it or don't watch it at all. I watched it when I wasn't necessarily even in a fragile state, but I was still really affected by especially the last episode and I regret watching it. There are some really graphic scenes which they give a warning for three of the episodes, but there are some things throughout as well that could also trigger people that they don't give warnings for.

People may hype it up a lot but your safety is more important than watching something just because everyone else is talking about it.

For you, I'd recommend not watching it at all. There are some intense graphic scenes and some other non-graphic things that will definitely trigger you. If you watch it, it should be after you've been recovered for an extended amount of time (I'd say at least 1 year). Your safety is the number one priority.

While you're in a fragile state I would definitely advise not to watch it, there are some very graphic scenes that I found very triggering and I'm in a pretty good frame of mind at the moment.

The last 2 episodes especially are extremely triggering so I would say wait until you know you can cope with assault/suicide scenes.

As the others have said, I would recommend either waiting to watch it, or consider not watching it at all. I have only watched one episode, but I have heard lots about the graphic scenes.

I would not recommend you watching it if you're in a fragile state. It would be better to wait until you are stable and have been for a while. I watched it and certain things throughout it were very triggering as well as very graphic.
