Hey there GS

I have to say I rather like your new term

What you describe sounds very similar to the effect of my son's adjustment disorder... he has events which will trigger memories and insecurities and fears of his... his psychologist informed me that studies have shown that in his age group he needs a period of not less than 2 years without any triggers in order to heal completely and for the triggers to no longer trigger him...

(In a family of three females - all with their own adjustment disorders and of course pms, this healing process is not likely to happen for him - though we make every effort - his triggers are loud noises i.e yelling, slammed doors, sudden noise, and the like...)


I like the term Insecurity Flare Up... it is a very concise and non-judgemental way of phrasing it...
Smile! It makes people wonder what you've been up to
