Sounds are a major trigger for me. The human voice, in certain situations, yelling or anger can cause some weird behavior in me I think. But more than sounds, loud noise bothers me, too. My reactions are quick. I am quick by nature. I can walk faster than an average person can jog. Not impossible, but agility is a gift and a curse for me. I react to sounds because I am very sensitive normally to just about everything. This also is a gift and a curse. So what the triggers are is hard to pin down. Being in places that remind me of things that happened to me that were bad. So places, sounds, intrusive thoughts from memories. I avoid most of these but can't always do so.
