Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Volunteering was exhausting, but good.


Started my first day of volunteering today and it went really well.

The people were nice, it felt like an okay atmosphere. Some of the people were very friendly.

The work was good and worthwhile, although a lot of lifting and bending and I do already have back, neck and shoulder pain, so it was hard on my body.

The whole thing was pretty exhausting ….. new people, new environment, not knowing what I was meant to be doing being new, physically demanding.

I had anxiety and hives, but it was worth it.

I focussed on why I was there, what I was doing it for.

I will rock up again tomorrow at the hall to help out when they sell the food in boxes for $10 each, which is really cheap for how much food went into each box. So truly helpful for those struggling financially.

Too exhausted to write anymore.

It went well.

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
