Sound is a funny one certain pitches and levels in peoples voices when i am sensetive (before and after bad migraine ) anything loud makes me whince and alarm ,beepers too .
Smells become stronger and often trigger nausea . I have noticed geometric patterns set me off lately too stripes especially blk and white ,mats they have in shop entrances our marks and spencers is a bad one silver and blk rubber ,the other day was somewhere that had a lot of block paving in geometric design in a light and dark pattern that really made my eyes go doolally . Also stress is a big one for me this really whacks me out . I find if i get overheated and sweat to much (eeww) that starts a bad head have to make sure i drink plenty of water so summer is not my favourite season .
I think that covers it for the triggers i am aware of . lol xx

Even in the worst situations, and believe me in our house we have some really bad ones, I rise above them all now. Although some hit the pit of my stomach I get rid of them fast!!!!
Dont ask me how I do it but I manage it somehow!
If it all gets out of hand I just tell them they are making me ill and walk away!!
We had sirens outside the house last night as they blocked the road off and it nearly killed me, then a family took a fight out onto the street, and we live in a quiet area, everyone else was having a look and I was sitting there quiet ignoring it all.
I have all the lights , stripes ,flashing etc like you also a lot of people talking at once does it for me so I have also learnt to concentrate on either just 1 or block it all out and not listen at all.
Flashing lights I find an odd trigger as its one of my auras, flashing lights/snow type thing thats when I know a bad ones on its way!

But I am with you Sheena, I just walk away, or put my head in my hands - once the kids see my head in hands they have a discussion on how ill I am and then calm down lol
Picture the seen me tramping across the field in my slippers through the cow poo shouting behind me 'and you can look after the kids and make the tea AND put them to bed!'..then as I passed our resident bovine friends I didn't want to appear impolite so mutter 'afternoon ladies' to the bemused cows.
You can walk for miles from our house across open land..and I did..muttering all the way..my fluffy pink slippers covered in unmentionables..when I got home the children were fed, bathed and stories read..and my partner had a distinctly sheepish look to him. He now gets nervous if I head outdoors during stressful times.
Life is still amazing and surprising.
