Triggers just when you think you've worked thru the worse of it!


I had a lovely weekend spent quality time with my part time partner. It's been difficult to spend quality time together. We get into a pattern over the last couple of months where we spend certain days together then this week he needed to cancel a few days - for a valid reason his brothers are in town and staying at his house. Trigger started - such a simple thing and I lost it and have been in bed since.

It's so hard to control my emotions even with mindfulness - I tried everything I was taught - everything and nothing worked. I'm physically exhausted - can't work just overloaded. Can anyone tell me how they successfully communicate with their partner during a trigger (abandonment ) and how I can not get so tired. I feel so ill!
