Lizabeth Casada - A Life After Trauma

This journey I’m on isn’t just survival; it’s about laughing and crying, digging deeper, pushing my limits, expanding my boundaries, creating new opportunities, getting out of being a victim and into the Warrior mindset, and

A New Perspective

Born into an alcoholic home, all my life I dreamed of escape. Escape from abuse, escape from relationships, and escape from living in secret. In my dreams, I was free to travel, live openly, and free to just be me. In my adult life I made it my mission to escape all the trappings of […]

10 Ways To Create A New Normal With Less Anxiety

We are living in unprecedented times.  We have had to change our life styles with virtually little warning; give up social contact with our friends, family and co-workers, learn to educate our children and try to create a living from home.  Vacations have been cancelled, restaurants are closed and even a trip to the grocery […]

Love One Another

Love One Another.  It is one of the greatest teachings throughout human history.  Using differing semantics, it is taught in all major belief systems and cultures.  It is one of the hardest teachings to practice however.  As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, love and the expression of love, was confusing to me.  Most of […]

Finding A Gold Nugget In Trauma

Oprah Winfrey says, “What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it.”  I have found this to be true in the life I have built since I finished therapy in 2011. It has been about 10 years since I had contact with my abusers. […]

They Aren’t Just Words

November 9th, 2016 I was traumatized. My country elected a self-expressed predator to the White House! I couldn’t believe it! I thought we had come so much further as a nation, as a people. I thought we were finally coming together as one and turning to Love. As a survivor of extreme childhood abuse, I […]

Fostering Communication Using Scales

Early childhood trauma has affected every aspect of my life but one of the hardest to overcome has been communication.  I have difficulty really discerning what someone means.  I have always questioned the meaning behind what was said, not to mention the mood of the person or the tone that they use.  This is not […]

I Am Not That Person Any More

I share this for all my fellow dieters, overeaters and friends in the hopes that it serves you as much as it is serving me. I lost 70lbs from Feb 2017 – Oct 2017 following the IPA Alternatives plan. I stayed at that weight, by cheating just enough, until April 2018. In April 2018, I […]

Letting Go

From the time I started therapy for D.I.D. (Dissociative Identity Disorder) in 2009, I had to get used to letting go.  I let go of the time I lost, the friends and family members I thought were on my side and I even had to let go of my children.  They weren’t taken from me […]

The ALAT Facebook Group

I started the closed Facebook Group for trauma survivors back in 2015.  I have been really thinking about a question I was asked not too long ago. “What do you envision for this group?” After much thought, meditation and prayer, here is my response: This is a group of powerful Warriors!
