Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

It is further trauma, to not be believed, or have the abuse minimized, dismissed.



People will always have their reasons, for not believing someone, or minimizing the abuse, or dismissing it etc.

I’ve had this happen to me, all my life.

Regardless of their reasons (mostly self serving), whether intentional or not…it is extremely painful, more trauma and re-traumatises us.

And that is usually then minimized and dismissed also.

I don’t minimize this, and I know the deep pain of this continual twisting of the knife.

It is my aim, to let people know they have a right to feel their emotions and pain about this.

No matter who tries to shut that down.

We live in a deeply emotionally abandoning society – where abuse victims are continually harmed by society.

I hope to be someone, who does the opposite of this, and validates people’s pain and suffering. I won’t do this perfectly, because I am far from a perfect person, but it is my heart to help victims of abuse understand their emotions, their pain, is valid, and must be respected – most of all – by self.

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. Yes. Being told your reality didn’t exist is one of the most painful experiences on earth.

  2. Thank you for writing this. No one, has the right to minimise someone else’s pain.
