The pain is pretty overwhelming. I actually quit listening to music It has made me angry to get rid of it, however, in the long run it was less painful. I also was very careful with the movies and TV shows I watched. I avoided love scenes, breakups, A's or anything that would be a trigger.
I will say my house was pretty clean. I actively worked to keep my triggers as few as I could. It doesn't prevent them, however it can help decrease them.
Hugs to you.
