13 reasons why *trig*
« on: May 16, 2017, 02:15:27 PM »
 :maytrigger: suicide , SA, bullying etc

I'm feeling triggered by this program and i haven't even watched it. I am surprised there isn't already a post about it? I couldn't find one anyway. Maybe it isn't available in the UK but i doubt it. Anyway everyone is talking about it and i read the book a while ago so i know what happens and i know that watching it will be too triggering for me but everyone is watching it and talking about it which is triggering in itself and ive been SH free for quite a long time now so it must be bad to trigger me. Anyone else feel the same ? Or has anyone watched it? I really want to watch it even though i know i shouldn't which seems a little self destructive  :fryingpan:
What does everyone think about it all?

I wondered if there would be a post too.

I watched it, I was in a pretty odd space and actually I found it helpful. In that it showed me that carrying all of the reasons that other people hurt just makes things a lot worse. There are things other people might find triggering that I wouldn't like SA and I was quite carefully aware of what would come up in each episode.  The ending I was worried about. But actually it was so far removed from what reality would be that it didn't affect me at all. It also made me look at how other people would be affected. I can definitely see why it would be triggering, I can see why it is talked about, but like I said, in the place I was in it was helpful.  I don't think I would recommend watching if you think that it would make you feel worse but sometimes watching morbid things when I feel quite like that helps. I think that was why.

Thanks for replying Lorien. Interesting that you watched and were ok about it, that's promising because I really want to see what everyone is talking about. I shouldn't have a problem I've been good for so long now, but found all the topics it has brought everyone to talk about (which is a good thing) bringing back a lot of stuff that doesn't normally cross my mind anymore. I was worried about the ending but I am at least prepared like you say. I will end up watching it, think it is inevitable, just need to be prepared and keep safe from my own brain  ::)

I genuinely think that it helps a lot that it is so fake, maybe it's worth making sure you have something nice to turn to if it is difficult and you can't watch more?
