The Crisses

When we were 16 we discovered that we weren't alone in our head. And we decided to live as an intentional family. Since, we've been diagnosed, asked whether we wanted to integrate, embarked on a journey of wrestling with PTSD and triggers, unloaded a boatload of baggage, and decided that we enjoy our shared life. Along the way we've become a holistic practitioner and a life coach.

This podcast covers many issues about being multiple, about living together in harmony, and more. Our goal is helping other systems with internal community.

    016 - Trigger Topics: Coffee and Deprogramming Triggers


    Recording on deprogramming and managing triggers from 2011 when we were triggered by the smell of coffee.

    Even once you have managed to work on most of your triggers, new ones can come up, ones you didn't expect or new aspects of old triggers. Here's a recording of when we were triggered in May 2011 and some of the ideas we've used to manage and work on triggers.

    Trigger warning: This discusses an active trigger, having switched between a protector or persecutor and a little, and is recorded by Hart, who is working on managing the trigger and discussing different ways the Crisses manage triggers. There's some minor cursing and discussion of different things that play into our coffee trigger.
