Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Received a copy of Shahida Arabi’s best selling book, that features some of my work :)


Shahia Arabi is the best selling author of books about recovering from toxic abuse caused by abusers – such as narcissists, sociopaths, psychopaths.

Shahida kindly asked me if I wanted to contribute to her second book and also requested to add another article of mine. I am deeply thankful to Shahida to include the articles and links to my sites and social media. (My articles are on pages 193-197).

I am also so touched of her dedication at the beginning of the book. It has been and continues to be an honour to support Shahida and others, in their journeys to healing and in reaching out to others.

This is Shahida’s best selling book –

which I have recommended on my Website.


This is the lovely dedication


I consider Shahida a friend, even though we have not met. I love her compassion, her drive and her desire to reach out, help and educate others, and give survivors of toxic abuse – the hope needed through the healing journey.

I highly recommend this book – it has everything in it anyone could want to know – including a lot of advice about healing.

Thank you Shahida – your light shines brightly and it is my hope – your light continues to shine in 2017 as you continue to write, share and reach out.

Much love, 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

    I’m so grateful for your work and am thrilled to see it being acknowledged and praised.

  4. And the book is how I found you here, Lilly!
    Your posts, (and everyone who comments!) are such a profound thing for me.
    I’ve had no “point of reference” for the life I’ve had, and had to figure out so much for myself.
    Coming here and having validation for my thoughts and feelings is SO powerful.
    I’m grateful for finding you all!
