Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Yes, the term ‘disorder’ is appropriate for PTSD

A lot of people fail to look at the bigger picture, when considering something that affects them. They only see their own needs, and fail to consider the needs of others.

People say the term disorder, is stigmatising. I ask those people, how is it any more stigmatising to call PTSD a disorder, than e.g. Bipolar, Schizophrenia, OCD?

Most mental health disorders, have occurred following some kind of trauma, neglect or abuse.

So there is no difference.

So, some of the people causing stigma…. are those who claim PTSD should be treated differently.

People need to see past their own issues, and see the bigger picture. Failing to do this, is how inappropriate attitudes, shaming and stigma, occur.

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
