Hello ATS, this is Toastman again.
So I'm writing a novel/graphic novel, called the Devil and Molly Hatchet, a tale set in the near future where the Annunaki (sometimes referred to as
Demons) and humans are coexisting on Earth, although it is tense time.
My main character is Robert "Bobby" Krieger, a police officer on Angeles Island (chunk of California that broke off after an earthquake), but
before, he was a soldier in the Military. His arm was damaged in an explosion and he was fitted with a bionic arm/laser weapon he calls Molly Hatchet
because he says he's always "flirting with disaster". Bobby also suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder due to his experiences with the
Military and as a mercenary/mine enforcer.
Now I don't want to come off as insensitive, but I want to really capture the terror Bobby feels when he has an episode and researching PTSD does
have its benefits, but I want to make it sound believable.
If I could ask anyone who was/is still in the military on how they cope with or is living with PTSD to give me some advice on how to portray my
character in a decent light (not a victim, not a crazy person) that would be really nice of you, and I hope to share my story when it's finished.
