Please read my post above.

And try to remember that it isn't your job to take care of other posters. You can never know what all the triggers for someone will be. Heck, I don't even know all of my own! People avoid threads that are upsetting for them. Those who are writing don't take this personally and those who are reading might not respond or might need to stop reading after a bit. It is all OK.

I think recognizing that you are triggered and saying so is a healthy way to call it out and manage it. And I noticed that most people keep writing even after acknowledging the difficulty in the subject matter. Pushing through is part of the process sometimes.

I think you, and all of us, try to mark threads that might be triggering. But one can never know. For me, threads that are light-hearted discussions of sexual feelings toward therapist are triggering. Go figure... But I take care of myself around it.

You really are OK. I hope the week off helps, and I hope you allow yourself to return whenever you feel up to it, sooner or later.
