Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

It is so much safer….


I relate to this quote and completely understand it.

It is where I am at.

I can’t allow myself to feel what I need to feel…. because it takes me to very dark places.

I can’t medicate it away, because I can barely function.

So, I live in a dream world, increasingly, where I am safe…. away from the world, away from life, away from people, away from the reality I don’t want to live in, that hurts too much.

Too many people have already touched my soul, with their dirty hands. I want no-one to touch me, in case their hands are dirty too.

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
