Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

With PTSD, all it takes is one trigger ~ Lilly Hope Lucario



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

  1. So true, I had this very thing happen today:(

  2. I am in that down cycle. I can’t even explain why I’m falling apart. I’m scared to tell my doctor. Scared to tell my family. Thank you for writing on this.

    • I understand that fear. I know I felt such fear when I was having what felt like a breakdown. The very first conversation with my doctor – I could barely speak. In fact, I had to go back again so that my doctor could try to gently get some more info from me. That’s when I was told I had PTSD.
      It’s so scary.
      But I am glad I did tell her, and was able to start counselling.
      Do you think you could tell doctor a little bit, so that it doesn’t feel overwhelming?
      Or maybe write it down, so you don’t have to actually try and get the words out?
      If you can’t, that’s okay and I support you with whatever you need to do, to cope.
      Love, Lilly ❤ ❤

  3. Very true, happens way too often, sadly!

  4. I find the best way to deal with these triggers, is to be okay wit it happening and have self compassion. When I am gentle with myself – I can cope better.
    I find distraction helps me and blogging as issues come up.
    It helps to get it out and not feel like I have to keep it inside.
