Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Why do I line space, more than is needed?


PTSD line spacing

Not all with PTSD will have issues with reading. But, I have noted those with severe PTSD and Complex PTSD, do often share issues with reading large amounts of text.

And we need to remember PTSD is a continuum. People experience the symptoms and consequences of trauma, to different levels of severity. It is not a ‘one size fits all’ disorder.

So, knowing this affects me, I always try to line space more, to make it easier for those who do find it makes a difference.

I do line space more than is deemed to be generally necessary.

But, I do this intentionally, to help those with traumatised brains and PTSD.

I have the capacity to work out why issues not generally known about as being issues due to PTSD, are in fact caused by the way the PTSD brain processes stimuli differently.

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. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
