My trauma is weird

As a foreword, You can laugh. 

I was in my improv and someone started doing a mickey mouse impression, and for some reason it triggered my fight or flight reflex. Then I realized that because of my abuser, who would do mickey mouse impressions and sometimes verbally abuse me using the impressions(for some reason???) so now I associate Mickey Mouse's voice with verbal abuse. It's really stupid, but somehow it's an actual trigger for me. I feel so silly about it.

wow your lucky. I get triggered by people just existing near me because of the rampant bullying and abuse I suffered as a child. Tell your brain it did a good job because it locked your trauma in a really good trigger. Mines too busy freaking out because my mom or whoever is walking behind me to get the pepper shaker off the counter.
