I have been triggered all day long.

I know I've heard that anxiety releases a lot of
adrenaline in the system. But that being said
all that stuff - that anxiety from triggers -
I've had triggers all day and now find I am exhausted
regretably as it is a holiday (St. Patrick's)

Rather than get totally pissed off at myself -
I think I understand why this happened.

So, do you think triggers cause exhaustion?
I need to get some sleep.

They cause exhaustion in me...especially when I focus on them. What I finds helps is keeping myself busy with something else, preferably with my cleaning, or something else to distract my attention. Good luck, I hope you feel better! \:\)
