Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Celebrated My ‘Mighty Article’ Being Published With My Children ~ Lilly Hope Lucario


I celebrated my article being published by The Mighty – with the only two people in this world who love me – my children.

I wish it could have been with family and a partner who loves me, but that is not my life.

It’s another moment of realisation of all I don’t have in my life, that I dearly wish I did have. I realise the grieving continues.

But, at least I have my children and lots of people on social media were very kind and supportive – and I am so thankful for them all.

My boys and I celebrated with some fancy doughnuts – which was very enjoyable. I kept focussed on them and not the sadness that was so present and is always present at the moment.

My boys loved their doughnuts and that was good to see.

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. Congratulations!!!!

    So proud of you and happy that your writings and wisdom is expanding!!

  2. It is just so amazing that your writing is on display. Love it!! Be proud you have your children with you so close to you. I had thought my children supported me and my journey. But they don’t. In fact they have become quite angry with my position on this issue. They want me to be silenced. They no longer have anything to do with me, the more I speak out about it. I am not going to be silenced.
