Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Joking about my life being made into a movie… ‘Hope For Lilly’ ;)


Due to someone who has recently contacted me from the US, who is an actress, my FB friends have been teasing me and joking about my life being made into a movie..

Dream big hey!! LOL!!

There’s even a name for the movie  ‘Hope For Lilly’

And the conversation went jokingly, to who would play the different parts….which is an interesting thought process….

There are many parts to cast…..my mother, step father, sisters, other family, family ‘friends’, the paedophile, the psychopath, my 20’s friends, my ex husband, the man who attacked me in the park, work colleagues, my current husband, a whole heap of church people, my children, my counsellor…

My mischievous side, is having a field day in my mind…

Helena Bonham Carter can play me as I am now…she’s kooky enough lol!

My counsellor can be played by Meryl Streep…

I have Lana Del Rey & Sia picked out for the music….

I guess I better hurry up and find the happy fucking ending to this future movie hey!

My friend already has me signed up to a book and movie deal…….bless!

They are far more confident of who I am, and all I have overcome etc, than I am.

Anyways………back to reality…..

Good to have a giggle though!


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 we are confident in you. I believe the cast choices are great at this stage. As long as our voices are heard. Wouldn’t it be amazing to get all of it your/ our stories out there and believed so that things can change. So that people can see it is possible to survive what you have been through. What we have as children.

  2. Nothing is impossible. May God use your story to help many others!
