Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

“Your blog is like a living journal”

I had a really good appointment with my doctor/counsellor today, went through lots of issues I have been having with online stalker/paedophile harassment, plus other issues.

Lots of talk about the things I am doing well/better at and what still needs work on – to have more ‘balance’. Balance and I are still not good friends, but getting there lol 🙂

One thing that was said, is that my very honest, very raw blog and my posts on my Facebook page – are like “my living journal”. I live my healing journey out loud.

And I share it, so others know they are not alone. Because I know how deeply painful ‘alone’ feels.

I know what terror, fear, severe abuse, all are like over long periods of time.

I know that compassion, empathy are needed.

I know how painfully hard this journey can be.

I know how it feels to be in so much pain, I want to end my life.

I know that abusers need to be exposed – safely, appropriately, and made accountable for their actions and not be apathetic about people who cause harm to others. But, I am also aware some survivors of abuse, don’t have the support needed to expose abusers and I understand this too.

I know that sharing my journey, helps others and it helps me.

I know the honesty I have about myself and others, is something needed when helping complex trauma survivors.

I may not be considered to have great boundaries and be an over-sharer, but I am honest, I am up front about who I am – good and bad and I know for me that is important.

I didn’t have a voice for a long time.

I do now.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

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
