Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Reflections over this Christmas holiday season.

I’ve been very mindful lately of seeing the priorities in life that I need to completely focus on. And ignoring anything that is not a healthy priority.

My children are my main priority and we have had some wonderful family time. Seeing my children happy, excited and spending quality family time with them, is such a blessing. Christmas has been low key, but great.

I’ve had a lot more energy and motivation lately, which was a choice I needed to make. And I think the medication I am now taking, has helped.  I have no more hives, and I am sleeping better. Plus pain issues, have reduced a little. All good stuff.

I’ve had the energy to do lots of organising, needing to be in control of our finances again, cleaning out stuff no longer needed. It made me think about how this is needed emotionally and psychologically too. Get rid of the junk, focus on what’s needed, do what’s necessary to ensure life runs more smoothly and focus on the priorities.

This change of focus, has definitely made a positive difference.

I’ve also been thinking of what is important to me, for 2016. And self care, getting fitter and healthier physically are on the list. Being healthy, benefits not just me, but my children. And that is my priority.

So thinking of priorities for 2016, are on my mind and I see this is a positive, healthy step forward along my journey.

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
