Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Big decision, and some peace….


My doctor and counsellor have both been helping me through some difficult and highly distressing issues, connected to my faith journey.

Both have suggested several weeks back, I attend a different Church, with reasons why.

My doctor has also suggested I attend a course next year for Bible studies geared towards women’s ministry, because she knows my deep desire to help others particularly those who have suffered abuse and have mental health disorders, like myself.

I know this Bible College is a different denomination to the one I currently attend. I also know the Churches suggested I consider going to are different denominations.

I know the reasons, because neither my doctor or counsellor attend Churches in the denomination of my current one.

So, I think it’s time I put aside my pride, put aside my need for justice, because I know there will be none to deal with the issues that have occurred.

A new start, where everyone does not know everything about me, where I can feel I am treated just like everyone else, and not treated like the poor mental health issue the Church has to deal with.

I made a massive mistake being as honest as I have been about my life, my past, my mental health, to some judgemental people, with heart issues.

So, I am going to take my doctors and counsellors advice and start again. Find a new Church family and make a fresh start.

And I do feel at peace, which I always know means a good decision has been made and one God wants to make.

Pride is never a good thing, and sometimes you have to set that aside, accept you made mistakes in being so honest and move forward.

Church, God, my faith journey is far more important to me, than my pride, my need for justice and fighting a fight I cannot win.

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
