Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Started my day, with creativity with my boys :)

Woke up early this morning and my youngest son who is 5, wanted to do craft immediately, as he is really into it. So, being tired (yucky dreams) I agreed to do this, as long as he could do craft and I would sit with him at the table and colour-in.

He was happy with that, so that’s what we did. My 12 year old got up an hour later, and wanted to join in. So he came and joined us, and did ’12 year old’ drawing.

It was great! The boys had fun, we all sat and were chatting as we enjoyed our individual activities. There was no sibling arguing, no TV on, just relaxed, family fun. And creativity stuff is good for the brain too.

And for me, it was a quiet activity, which is good for my PTSD noise sensitivity stuff, I got to enjoy my boys as a mother and do inner child stuff, all at the same time.

My 5 year old, is very pleased with his stop, go, slow signs and Olaf from Frozen he made and coloured in. My 12 year old practised his bubble letter writing and was content. And my princess I coloured in, looks beautiful too, with her turquoise and purple dress.

And my husband got to have a lie in too, which doesn’t happen often, so he will be happy.

Great start to our morning, which does not normally start like this at all 🙂

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
