Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

My husband just pulled the threat of ‘you can’t live without me’.

Whilst talking about how we are splitting up, my husband just sneeringly stated that I can’t live without him, I won’t get public housing, I won’t even find a homeless shelter, if he leaves and because I can’t pay the mortgage.

What a narcissistic fucking ego that is – to sneer at me – that I can’t manage/cope without him.

I will manage without him and I will find somewhere to live with my children, if my house gets sold.

This is classic narcissism, to think that he is so important that I wont be able to manage a life for myself and my children, without him and his income.

And it is a threat too.

He wants to hold control and the threat over me, that I can’t cope without him.

Emotional abuse.

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. It is defiantly abuse. I hope you get free. I know it’s hard, but it’s worth it. My ex said the same thing and look at me now. Two years later and I found a great guy that is so gentle. I’m here for you.
