Abstract

This collection of essays, organized with two fiction pieces to every three essays, blends fiction and nonfiction craft elements and is intended to challenge the reader's notion of experienced reality. There were three goals in mind while creating the collection: to give the reader a better understanding of PTSD and its symptoms, to illustrate the ways in which storytelling impacts our perception of reality, and to examine the ways in which a gendered experience affects an individual's reality.
