Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Still sometimes crave those ‘highs’.

I was a party girl back in the day, clubbing was a huge part of my life in my 20’s. The club style dancing, the club scene, having far too much ‘fun’, the men, alcohol, the sex – were my highs.

This was my life.

I craved the level of fun, that would take away the inner pain I always had, from so much abuse. A maladaptive coping strategy that is common in child sexual abuse victims.

When I hear songs like this – that I love – I still crave being back there.

Even though, I have no intention or desire to be back in the clubbing scene the rest of the time.

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
