Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Lumosity Brain Training Results Were Surprising..

I saw an advert for Lumosity Brain Training on the TV, and got sucked in by their claims to be based upon neuroscience…

I have often thought about doing brain training, as I am aware my concentration skills, short term memory etc, are affected by having endured so much trauma and having PTSD.

I picked out the areas I thought I most needed to ‘exercise’ and develop, so short term memory and attention skills, being areas my poor battered brain could definitely do with some growth.

I was surprised by the results.

My speed appears fairly average, but my Train Of Thought and Memory Matrix (whatever that is) – were pretty good scores.

Didn’t expect that at all. Is Lumosity just rubbish and a way to make money…??

Or are these results, just a different type of memory function, to the areas I struggle with??? Because I also do have excellent memory skills to recall things my brain ‘needs’ to remember.

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
