triggereddd ?

I was listening to music in my headphones..

it's 12:19am.

all of a sudden my dog starts yapping.

I'm on the couch and I pat my chest for him to lay with me and calm down.

I turn my music off but I don't hear anything.

it just freaks me out because ever since I moved from "home".. no one knows where I am, except my mom.

my mom is a 9-5 botherer, she wouldn't show up at midnight.

I live in a safe place (aka not the rich but in a block of apts where if I screamed someone would know and call the cops...a+ right?)

my point is....Ive moved from home, Illinois. I don't need to be worried about sounds or people in the night.

but it's in my bones now.

I wouldn't worry, I assume your dog is unfamiliar with the surroundings since you say you moved from home. It will take him time to adjust to the strange sounds like a furnace turning on or water in the pipes draining etc. I'm sure if there was trouble, he will hear it much sooner and warn you. I hope you get some rest and enjoy your evening.

[@1241293,ClassicRocker] we moved from home, yes...but my dog and I have been in this apt for 2 years. it was really nothing, it was just unusual. normally he gets bark tourettes in the daytime. not night. hes calm now though.

[@1130342,HellsBelle] Ok, didn't know. I'm glad you are OK.

[@1130342,HellsBelle] he's hearing things from other Apt.s, things you're not hearing, thats all.

Have any one you can connect with?

[@1130342,HellsBelle] I feel broken too. I just took to other means to find connection than SW? And I've been known to be surprised, by even myself, even though I don't regret to escape that feeling of brokenness at times, cause who is going to heal you, but yourself?

[@854658,Asificair] lmao what?! I have a bb gun that I have yet to even open
Asificair · M
[@1130342,HellsBelle] why is that funny 🤔. Oh well.
HellsBelle · 31-35, F
[@854658,Asificair] I laughed it off because sometimes I laugh off what I find disturbing. my post is titled "triggered" and mentions being scared. to be honest.....originally, I took your comment as "have a gun? k*ll yourself". I now realize that wasn't it and.... I don't know what to say. ...but yep I only have a bb gun. and mace.

[@1749,Lilnonames] nah live in a block of one level close apts. yes crime can happen but its unlikely since we are all so close. but, cameras are always a good idea. thanks.
