What IS COMPLEX trauma?
In short, complex trauma, or C-PTSD, is a form of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
that stems from repeat childhood experiences.
It is especially difficult to treat because of the developmental stage of the brain
at the time of trauma. Lives are formed around unknown C-PSTD.
Unstable homes, domestic abuse, addiction, sexual abuse, poverty, sudden loss...
these events stick with us in insidious ways that often hide for decades.
They lodge themselves in the body, implant fucked up core beliefs,
and change the wiring of the brain.
Autoimmune disorders are common. Panic attacks are a way of life.
Self-hate, fear, and helplessness run rampant.
Anxiety and depression are constant companions.
Why Traumatized Motherfuckers?
Trauma survivors often follow two paths:
1) retreating from life, avoiding emotions, considering themselves victims, and resenting the world that 'owes them something' or 'doomed them'
2) integrating their traumas, finding lessons in the suffering, and approaching obstacles with more grit and resilience than 'normies' could muster.
When you're ready to take accountability for your mental health and start the process of rewiring your trauma brain. When you stop feeling wronged, recognize your suffering isn't a unique experience, and no longer view yourself as helpless.
When you're prepared to forgive your past and move forward towards a better future
with all the grit, determination, and resilience gathered from hard living...
You're not a trauma victim, you're a Traumatized Motherfucker.
