Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I have no desire to reactivate my healing community page.


I have taken a few breaks in the past as the admin of my Facebook community page. But, I’ve always been itching to get back onto it.

I have closed it down recently, knowing I am running on empty, overwhelmed with too many issues, and quite frankly – really over seeing people’s issues vented at me… daily.

And I realise people are going though their own issues and that is exactly why I created and posted daily on my community page for over 2 years. But, I don’t need the added anxiety of knowing every day, someone will be venting onto me and being nasty, selfish, egocentric and narcissistic. And many don’t realise how their nasty behaviours are in fact narcissism, which is present in people with PTSD who are the ‘fight’ types. The ‘fight’ response, is narcissism.

I don’t actually know if I will ever re-activate the page. I don’t need the added hassle it brings and it does feel like a form of self harming, to put myself out there on FB, opening up this platform for other people’s disordered and dysfunctional issues to be vented onto me.

I feel safer, not having to log on to it. And that is something I should not ignore.

Twitter I am still involved in and that is different to Facebook. Twitter has a very different feel to it, and is used by more professionals too, than FB, so I can interact with ‘healthier’ people, there.

I may change my mind and activate FB, but for now, I am definitely not even considering it.

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. I think this sounds really healthy and like great self care. Much love and support!

    • I understand the feeling. I also am admin to a FB page and I write another blog and I minister to hurting women…. and I am running on empty sometimes. It is hard to get the help you need when others are constantly coming to you. I am thankful to be able to speak into others lives, but sometimes we do need to just take a break and let ourselves heal. Good for you!

  2. Take care of You and know we care and will miss your posts. But You are important !!! ❤

  3. Wow. That helps my decision in going off of fbk. I was only going to stay on to keep in touch with your page and a few others.
    My family don’t give 2 shits about my mental health at the moment so why should i update them with photos of my boys when none of them even ring to see how they are. Love you lil. Well i like you. I have great respect and admiration for you and am really thankful i found you in those early days. You really helped alot.
