Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Balance is off….

It’s been a big week for me. A really good one. A really full week, meeting new people, driving to the city. Every day I have had something going on. Which is wonderful and I am thankful, but also a little overwhelming. I realise I should have planned my week with at least one day off, to have some needed alone, quiet time.

So, next week I will plan my week better.

Have a few days where I can relax, get out in the gardens, potter about and just breathe.

I need balance in my life, in many different ways. When that balance is off, I get exhausted. Physically and mentally. I don’t sleep well, my anxiety increases etc. I see how it affects me.

So, remaining focussed on balance and self care, is needed. I know my limitations.

And I am an ‘all or nothing’ woman, no more 🙂

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. Reading your posts regarding self care is helpful to me. I try to just slow down, sometimes not talking even helps.
