Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Loss, grief, abandonment, hurt, withdrawing.


Ending counselling is painful. I feel that fear in my chest continually. I keep crying. And then I feel numb and very depressed.

I know abandonment depression is a symptom of Complex PTSD and the loss of any significant relationship, is so hard.

I didn’t sleep at all last night, so I’m running on a deficit of strength. I just want to curl up and cry for hours. Which I probably will again tonight, when my children and husband are in bed.

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
