Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

People’s vibes are overwhelming me atm, so I need to have distance.


I have a lot going on at the moment. A lot of stress, which is why I have lost 4 kilo’s in the last few weeks.

I understand fully everyone has their issues, but I am a HSP person and I take on everyone’s vibes and issues and feel them – good and bad.

It is not something I am skilled at dealing with, when I already have a huge load of stress and anxiety piled on top of me already. It causes me greater anxiety and stress.

So, I need distance and I am staying off social media the rest of today.

It is needed self care and I have to continually remind myself that my self care and my wellbeing is paramount, because I have children to take care of and my current situation is not easy/good, and is exhausting.

I can’t cope with everyone else’s issues, whilst dealing the load I have.

So, it’s best for all concerned, if distance occurs.

I don’t want to say the wrong thing and upset anyone – and I am aware how easily offended some people are.

And I don’t want people taking out their stuff on me, because I just cannot deal with it right now.

Self care and withdrawing is an act of self care and self compassion right now.

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. Sori about that. I apologised already I hope. Lots going on for all. I’m glad i logged off to before screwing up even more. I was only trying to say that lady was a nice person. Way to blow it lol. From now on when I’m dissociating and tired I’m going to try not say anything at all

    • I am not at all upset by any of it, just didn’t know what to say, without upsetting anyone, so I just became overwhelmed and zoned out too.

      I love you my friend ❤

      • X. Tried to just have a peaceful shower without kids and the husband who has like a 20min kid free shower every day wouldn’t bloody stop talking to me. Grr. What a great pair. At least we both know and have the insight and empathy. I hope you OK and relaxing or doing something nice for you. X
