I’ve read several posts and maybe I’m missing those shared triggers, but mine are coughing, sneezing, clearing the throat; things I know people can’t control. But when a co-worker starts to cough I want to jump out of my skin. I have the smaller triggers like everyone else is talking about, but those three I mentioned cause such an irrational rage I want to scream! Actually, I wanted to write rip the person’s head off, but wasn’t sure how it would be perceived in my first post.

Even in church when someone starts coughing it would drive me nuts. Then they would dig in their purse for a cough drop or candy. You would think I would be happy they are trying to suppress their cough, but no, i’m Jumping out of my skin at the rattling of the wrapper the candy has.

Tapping the foot is another of those 2nd tier triggers. I immediately jump to rage when they happen. It truly sucks being like this.
