I was talking to my CPN (Community Psychiatric Nurse) about some situations I’ve been in recently. Particularly to do with my Mum, who’s said she’s on a diet, and then has a bowl of cake and cream. I find that triggering.
I thought that’d be obvious. But she was all: ‘oh, that’s very interesting. What other triggers do you have?’
Me, being my stupid self, kinda assumed that everyone with an eating disorder would be triggered by the same things. But as everyone’s eating disorder is so different, it stands to reason that their triggers would be different too, right?
So, I was wondering what things do other people find triggering? When I’ve with other people that I know through the ‘ED world’ I always try to avoid any obvious triggers, but what about the ones that I don’t recognise?
What triggers you? What are the worst things that anyone could say to you?
