Triggers are external events or circumstances that, if they happen, may produce symptoms that are, or may be, very uncomfortable. These symptoms may make you feel like you are getting ill. These are normal reactions to events in our lives, but if we don't respond to them and deal with them in some way, they may actually cause a worsening in our symptoms. The awareness of this suceptibility and development of plans to deal with triggering events when they come up will increase our ability to cope, and to avoid the development of an acute onset of more severe symptoms.
Then, using Wellness Tools, you develop an action plan you can use to get through this difficult time.
