    No because my triggers are more 'sounds' and 'visual' type things rather than the written word.

    No as I'm more triggered by 'sounds' and 'visual' than the written word.

    I avoid them now, mostly because I know people will enter the thread and say something horribly offensive about victims and victims parents. I've been very hurt in the past by trigger threads and I think that people should take the word 'trigger' seriously before shooting their mouth off with their loud opinions.

    Any thread title that involves animal abuse or child abuse being discussed I will never open .

    I have once opened a thread where something about an animal was being discussed and I honestly have never forgotten it , I actually had to ring my sister to talk about it and have a good cry as it was eating me alive :-(

    That's no fault of the thread , that's my own sensitivities . I like that people put trigger or distressing as a warning , however I've seen some child abuse threads where the title of the thread is distressing enough to me let alone opening it and reading it .
