**Possible triggers**

I work on PCs for a living. I was working on someones notebook and the wallpaper was of this 30-40 year old women kissing what appeared to be her 4-6 year old son on the lips. Now this was probably just a quick kiss but it really freaked me out, so much so that I decieded to delve into the pictures on this laptop to see if I would find anything else questionable or worse. Luckily I didn't find anything that was remotely questionable. But I'm just wondering, is this triggering to most survivors or just me?

Jason,

I think I would have to see the pic to know if it would be triggering for me. But I can well imagine it would trouble many survivors, especially guys who had been abused by their mothers.

It clearly doesn't bother the woman in question, since she's using it as her wallpaper. But then, she knows the context of the pic too, whereas we don't.

Much love,
Larry
