Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Updated website with a page about complex childhood trauma – wiring the brain for fear.


I am often updating and adding to my Website.

I have now added a page, which I will continue to add to, with info about the child’s brain becoming wired for fear, if they experience childhood complex trauma.

And how this is not something you can just ‘get over’. And why.

My website receives a lot of traffic, and the more that understand this, the better.


Update, also added a page with links to educate about the life impacting consequences to mental and physical health, caused by complex trauma.


When I come across more info, I will add to these pages.

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. Thank you for creating this new section!
    It is very helpful & comforting.

    • Thank you Julie ❤

      It is my hope the validation survivors will gain from seeing this info, will provide some comfort.

      It is also my hope, that I am adding a little, to educating society about the profound consequences of complex trauma.

      I hope this leads to less shame and more understanding.

      • Lilly,

        I noticed that a 2nd Julie has posted some great comments.

        So I changed my name to
        Jules opal to make it easier to know who’s commenting.

        Also I’ve started doing the self care tools from your new section & really appreciate you sharing them.

        For me your hopes have already come true because the validation the new section provides gives me courage to carry on.

        Also a link to the new section can be easily texted to my family members who treat me like a pathetic failure & pressure me to shut up about abuse.

        Thank you!!

  2. Oh awesome. I’ve been asked to get information. So the website and blog are still in use. I can cite the website to Yay. X
