      Triggered Memories by Stimuli

      This is probably because I'm in a vulnerable state..but I'm starting to experience intense nostalgia at memories about events and people (particularly love interests)

      I often have some sort of stimuli attached to this special something or someone. Usually, it's a song, for me. That must reveal how much I listen to it, haha....But just today, I was listening to a song that I remember dancing with a close girl friend about 5 years back. I felt like I was back there. And now I'm realizing I'm here, I'm all like "What the hell just happened?" For a minute, it felt like time travel.

      This is probably why I was very sensitive concerning OCD. If memories could be so triggered, then my fears are just as easily triggered. It's worst whenever I fear I've done something wrong, my moral sense just goes berserk, sometimes sending me into a moral down spirial, which is not a good thing....

      Sometimes, while listnening to certain songs or reading books, I get 'taken back' into a very vivid memory. The connection you've made with the song or smell, or whatever triggers the memory is what affects you.

      yeah, for me it's certain songs, certain smells, back i go, zooming into the past...
      I was listening to a song today, that i played a while back, when i was going through a bad time i thought was good. (if that makes sense)
      Now that i'm out of that, listening to that song, took me back to the person i was...and i didn't like what i saw.
      A paranoid, hard drinking, possessive, angry woman.
      And all over a bloke...i must have been mad.

      it's not like that to me, i just get somewhat depressed and try to get away from whatever it is.

      edit: okay i really don't want to use the word "depressed" because i HATE to throw that word around, it gets so overused and now everyones saying it for the slightest bit of discomfort and it's just stupid. so lets say..."upset"?


      Ignorant bliss is an oxymoron; but so is miserable truth.
