Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Sadly, a lot of shame/stigma about PTSD & abuse, is caused by sufferers, advocates & those in the mental health industry.

I am certainly seeing a huge amount of stigma created by those who have suffered abuse and those with PTSD.

I am also increasingly seeing stigma and shame created within the mental health profession/industry itself.

And from advocates, who often only care about their own needs/experience.

I am not okay with this and will keep doing what I can to help bring awareness to this.

People who don’t ‘think’ deeply enough, or only care about their own needs/situation and don’t see outside of that, often cause a lot of stigma and damage.

I see cognitive distortions and self serving needs, everywhere. I can only do my little part to help raise awareness of all this.

And I know I will continue to receive opposition and resentment along the way.

The more disordered people are, the more they cling tightly to that disordered thinking. Cognitive dissonance often shown, when you challenge someone to see something they are doing is unhealthy.

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
