    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    I'm glad you have that appointment tomorrow. Where have you seen the suicide in teens? If in the news, stop watching the news or twitter or wherever for a while. We can change our environment when we're not safe so we can be less triggered.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    hi fried eggs, it is so good that you care and are concerned with sensless deaths in young people, especially when the deaths occur at their own hands. however, sometimes we need to take a step back from the negative drama of the world in order to better care for ourselves. i do not see this as selfish. rather, when we are better intact ourselves, we are better equipped to help others along.

    please keep everyone posted on how you are doing.
