Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Feeling so overwhelmed.


I am going through some pretty highly emotional and challenging stuff at the moment. *sigh.

My childhood and intense emotions I have not dealt with.

Painful grieving at the realisation of how severely my whole life has been affected by my childhood.

Issues in counselling.

Issues in my marriage.

Volunteering and being around new people – and all their many differing issues/needs.

Parents at my youngest son’s school wanting to get together, today I had an invite to a high tea on Friday.

Both the volunteering and parents stuff – increasing anxiety considerably, but I have pushed myself to do it for several reasons, including not continuing to be isolated.

And trying to post info on my page etc to help others.

Plus, increasing exhaustion and pain in my body….  I am now having blood tests for to see if it is something like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Chronic Fatigue etc. And I know there is something wrong, as I am now hobbling like an old woman every morning, and even yoga is now too painful to do.

Plus, trying to be a decent parent to two noisy, energetic boys and deal with 13 year old hormones.

I am completely overwhelmed.

Emotionally, psychologically, physically overwhelmed.

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. Your words are always so interesting to read. That you so openly share them, your inner struggles that is not visible from the outside so easy. I’m sure this blog can be of so much help for others going through hard times on a mental level due to horrible things that has happened to them.

    You are a light in the darkness and I wish you the best of luck on your path of healing and that this blog will continue to be of great value to others.

  2. The emotional pain that we carry lead to the physical ailments that we encounter. Praying for you!
