Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Silence, is often a very powerful message.


I have sent 3 messages within the last 15 days, to my doctor/counsellor, none of which she has responded to.

She has been receiving my previous messages, so I can only assume bar some big issue having occurred, that she is ignoring them. I don’t believe she hasn’t received all of them. Even my husband thinks it’s strange, as she responded very quickly to the one he sent her about nearly ending my life.

That’s life, you can’t rely on anyone, bar yourself.




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. I am sorry that your messages are going unanswered, but I can completely relate to the last sentence. I wish that life wasn’t this way, but I feel the exact same. The only people we can count on is ourselves.

    • Thank you, I appreciate your understanding ❤

      There could be a million reasons why there has been no response, but I just don't even want to care anymore. I just need to accept it is what it is.

      It's easier for me, not to care and just be numb to it. It's the only way I can handle it these days.

      • Of course. I never had that relationship with any of my therapists but I can only imagine how hard it would be for them to go unanswered. I know that we try to do like you said and not have it bother us but we know how hard that is. It’s okay to let it affect you because you are human and we should expect those who are around us to help us, especially our therapists. I am thinking of you and I hope that you know you are supported. Been reading only for a short while but know I’m in your corner.

  2. I’m sorry you’re going through this right now. I hope you get an answer soon.
