Ugh! Triggers are the worst. Here's an incomplete list of possible triggers...just so you know you aren't going crazy. Remember: sometimes you can be triggered without hearing a noise. For instance, you may be triggered when you see someone chomping gum in the car next to you..even if you can't hear it.
"You can wear your headphones in the car. It's ok."
"I can see you are triggered. I'm going to leave you alone for a bit."
You or someone you love has just been triggered. Here are some thoughts and tips:
"This isn't your fault. You haven't done anything wrong."
"My child has an auditory condition and she can't be in tight spaces."
"I'm feeling triggered so I"m going to step away."
"You can eat dinner wherever you feel most comfortable. We love you."
"You'll always be my baby and I love you no matter what."
