Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Taking some baby items, to domestic violence survivors.

I saw a post to a local social media page ‘pay it forward’, where a woman was asking to be considered for a cot. She stated she is a DV survivor, has fled the abuse and set up home by herself, but has virtually nothing. And is 19 weeks pregnant and has a young child.

I have a lovely bassinet and change table, so I messaged her and offered her these. She messaged me back profusely thanking me for the offer, stating her friend is also a DV survivor and has a baby. She seemed very surprised by the kindness being offered to her.

I’m delivering them tomorrow, with my husband – as I don’t know these people. I can be compassionate….. and careful.

My husband said he wondered if these items would end up on Ebay tomorrow and I shrugged. A woman says she is in need, is a victim of abuse and I have items she needs. I hope she is genuine, will assume she is and I want to help. If she isn’t genuine, that will be her conscience to deal with.

I will do what’s right, kind and compassionate for strangers where I can, regardless of them proving to me they are genuine or worthy.

I am purchasing items for homeless people and have considered also donating to DV charities/org’s. I am aware being married to a cop, how widespread and what a crisis/epidemic DV is. My husband spends more time on DV cases than any other type of police job.

Victims of DV/abuse are getting hurt and murdered far too often. The children are suffering so badly as well.

So, I will do my part in helping where I can.

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.
