Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Why I am SO glad I don’t homeschool!

Went to see Peppa Pig last night at Bunnings – which didn’t start until 6pm, so it meant a late night for my children.

They enjoyed it, there was a queue all the way down the store to meet Peppa Pig – she is one popular pig. Then there was a queue for the petting farm animals, then we had to wait for the Easter Bunny.

There were so many people it was ridiculous, and there was music playing and lots of children, and quite frankly for someone with noise and sensory processing issues, anxiety, not liking crowds etc – it was (bleep’ing) horrendous.

But, I did what I had to do, and pretended I was having ‘so much fun’, for my children. And I did love seeing how happy they were and how much fun they were having. And I am very thankful that Bunnings have these free family evenings – it is lovely they do this for the kids.

So, being a late night for my 6 year old, he was a cranky little bugger this morning. Tantrums, refused to put his shoes on, whinging…… fun….not!

By the time I got him to school, I was already O V E R today.

I warned the teacher why he was cranky, wished her luck with that (joking with her), and now I am home thinking THANK GOD I don’t home school!!!

Praise God for schools and teachers!

I adore my children, but they sure do exacerbate my anxiety, stress, noise sensitivity issues etc.

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
