Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Update on my gardens, as they grow and mature. I’ve been gardening for a few months now and the gardens are starting to mature and are looking increasingly lovely.


My flowering arch, looking beautiful now it is covered with flowers.



My son’s tomatoes, continuing to get bigger – to his delight. Hopefully they will start turning red soon.




New plants, some pretty pansies.



I love mixing up some fake flowers and plants, within the real ones, to create some more colour.





My son’s both made these plants in decorated pots. They painted their names on them, and gave the plants to me as gifts.



Pretty flowers in my front yard.


New plants in the front yard. Looking very small now, but as they mature, they will be beautiful flowering bushes.

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

  1. Looks beautiful. Such a wonderful oasis to have to sit in when feeling blue. Wish I could come and sit and have coffee. I made pots with the boys handprints for their grandparents birthday. They a good idea from kids.
