Recovery from Complex PTSD is possible.
This space journals my path so others may see that while recovery is difficult work (and it is work) it is possible to improve our quality of life. If you are recovering, or if you know someone on the journey, I hope these images and essays can help with understanding and encourage perserverance.
You can recover.
You are worth it.
