Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Physical & Sexual Abuse, Nearly Always Occur With Emotional & Psychological Abuse At The Same Time



I find it very lacking in empathy, when people who have not been physically or sexually abused, try to say emotional and psychological abuse, are as bad, or worse.

I have endured all of these abuse types. Both as a child and as an adult. So I do understand each type and the consequences of each type. I understand this more, than someone who hasn’t.

Most people who are abused physically and or sexually, are also abused emotionally and psychologically. So they are dealing with the pain and consequences of the multiple types of abuse being endured.

So, it would be helpful if people could understand this, and not invalidate physical and sexual abuse, in the way I see many are doing.

I’m very validating of anyone’s trauma, no matter the abuse type. But I do not like to see invalidation of abuse, caused by those who have not endured them.

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.
