Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

It’s Not Always Depression, Sometimes It’s Shame ~ By Hilary Jacobs Hendel

I really appreciate this article, that tackles the shame we often feel, caused by child abuse, sexual abuse etc. Often people don’t realise it is shame. I know I have dealt with a lifetime of shame and I still am.

Which is why I now advocate against victim blaming/shaming and blame shifting etc. We have already suffered enough.

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
