Every time Matthew Altobelli tried to picture his life after high school, he couldn't see anything. But a conversation with his guidance counselor in January 2006 gave him clarity: He would join the Air Force.

But after returning home from Afghanistan, he found himself battling a host of physical issues as well as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He began to look forward to hospital stays when he'd be numbed by drugs. Under the influence, he could escape his mental demons or the physical world.

While many veterans suffer from PTSD and its related symptoms, it can affect anyone who has suffered trauma. Drawing on his personal experiences, the author explains what it means and how he's fought it.

Take a journey down a winding path of heartache as a former staff sergeant seeks to find his place in the civilian world while battling demons from the past.
