I have been considering new categories for the current study and specifically the concept of “self induced” versus “direct” triggered upset reactions. As I looked at the heartbeat work and the upset trigger work two categories emerged. In moments where upset was triggered I was either remembering something or anticipating something. In both cases I was creating a picture in my head that formed the basis for a narrative. The activities are the same in both cases though one is looking back in time the other projecting forward. So I combined them into the category Memticipation – the state of creating a picture and a narrative about the world around me that induces an upset feeling.
