Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

The ‘I think I’m paranoid’ – was hypervigilance after all…

I always knew I saw and thought a lot more than most around me. I’ve been told numerous times in my life I was paranoid. So, I stopped talking about what I saw.

Now I know, I did indeed see a lot more about people’s behaviour than anyone around me. I already knew how to work out people.

It’s now deep discernment and those that don’t have that capacity won’t ‘get it’ and label it paranoia…rejecting what they don’t know.

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

  1. People are afraid of the truth so much so that they blatantly refuse to believe anything that scares them. Rose coloured glasses anyone? You can’t be paranoid if it a fact! That would make pscycologysts paranoid because they see things average people don’t? Body language, tone of voice ect…. Blah people are dumb! Remember we’re not the jackass whisperers! Lol Smile beautiful, God has given you a very valuable gift when it comes to reading people and seeing thing most people don’t! I always wonder how you read me, or if you’d read me different in person. I was praying about you this morning and thinking you should write a book on behavioural analysis from the perspective of a person with PTSD and complex trauma. I am certain you could do it and that it would be really great! God bless you sister!
