I actually experienced a trauma trigger the other night from a TV show. A scene triggered a memory from my childhood and I cried. I sat and comforted myself until it was over and continued to watch the show. Before this, I was against the whole “Trigger Warning” thing. After it, I’m still against it. I’m not going to write the network and say, “How dare you not know that the XYZ scene in your show could trigger MY trauma? You didn’t let me know! YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE!” They’re not. And I’m sure they couldn’t care less. In fact the writers would be like, “Good! We touched a nerve. We made you feel.” That’s the goal of every writer.
Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me writing!
