i used to attend AA meetings and they had all these sayings- one was if you were the hyper-sensitive type, you were said to be wearing a suit of mouse traps- one triggering the other until. . . and it’s not a fun place to be.In regards to triggers, any thing of conflict can do it. Even situations that aren't conflictual, I can still perceive them as a threat. It's the paranoia that gets the ball rolling down hill.
My doc put me on various medications to disable the “mouse traps” but the only thing they ever did for me was lower my inhibition. The only thing that worked to disable them was and is prayer.
