Definitely one of the topics I feel most ambivalent about... On the one hand, I love that moment when you read what it was that triggered someone today and feel an overwhelming sense of recognition; of not being that mentally screwed after all or at least not being alone in it. On the other hand, I hate to see how easy it is for daily life & the most ordinary events to trigger negative thoughts, behaviors or both in members who are trying so hard.

 

What triggered me today was something an elderly lady told me during my Sunday morning swim. We swam a few lanes together and she told me caring about one's weight and figure is a lifelong sentence. How true that was, how that hit the spot... I figured if I'm going to be a prisoner for life I might as well serve my sentence to the best of my ability :rolleyes:

Panic that I didn't get everything out when I purged.

Number on the scale.

My reflection. Just my face is enough to make me cry, nevermind my disgusting body :(

Sweet words about my body helped me eat as much as my body needed for the first time in weeks...

(positive triggers count too, right?)

^ it was really nice to read a positive trigger, GW. Thank you for posting that and reminding us that "trigger" isn't a bad word.

Back to the negative triggers...
My case manager told me when I picked up the phone she thought a man had answered. Thank you, bulimia throat, for causing that confusion.
