this this what triggering feels like?

quick question- if you’re listening to a song, and it suddenly brings up awful memories and you just get really panicky, is this what triggering feels like?

i can’t listen to “teddy bear” and “tag, ur it” by melanie martinez and it brings up bad memories, it makes me feel really panicky, i shake, i’m almost at the point of crying.

Sorry that was supposed to be I start to cry. It was just a typo. Sometimes when I hear a sad song and I'm having a bad day I start to cry.

they’re not really sad songs, it just..awakens something in me. it’s scary to think about.

Yes I would say this is a trigger. Sometimes I listen to songs and I hear the lyrics and it reminds me of stuff in the past and I will start to panic.
So yea songs can be a trigger of past memories for certain people

Yes. When I listen to Ends of the Earth by Lord Huron it has the same affect. Songs can be triggers and it’s best to just not listen to them until you’re in a good enough mental state to actively work on eliminating that trigger.
