I really liked the chapter, but this comment is going to be more general and more Matt-related and more really just directed to you, the author :)

I've already mentioned in another review that I know what it's like to have PTSD/ anxiety, etc. and that that makes me love Matt. The thing is, I started developing PTSD only about three or four months ago. I've been following your stories about Albus and Matt for about two years, so I knew about PTSD already through your story and that's why I recognised it. I always pitied Matt, because it sounded so awful, but now I know how awful it is to e.g. wake up crying from nightmares about the past. That might sound as if I'm trying to get pity, but I just felt like saying it, because I've really started thinking about Matt a lot since I stated developing PTSD. He's really sweet. :P But no, it's just so weird, getting PTSD after knowing about it through a fictional character.

How can you describe Matt's symptoms and concerns so accurately? I mean, is it just research or have you experienced PTSD/ anxieties/ depressions/ etc. personally (not necessarily you, but maybe a dear one)? Just wondering.

Oh and a quick question: are you going to go directly on to book 6 after finishing this one?

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it! Oo, I love Matt-related questions. And questions directed at me!

I'm sorry you've had to deal with anxiety and PTSD. :( I hope you have someone to talk to about it, whether a friend or a therapist, or whoever. I know you're not trying to get pity, and I'm glad you're able to relate to Matt. Being able to relate to the characters is part of what makes reading so awesome.

I personally have never experienced PTSD, nor have I met anyone who has (that I know of). I've had anxiety, although nothing near what compares to Matt's. I did major in psychology for my undergraduate degree so I learned a lot about PTSD and anxiety in various classes. What I didn't know from class, I researched. I'm really glad you think it's realistic!

I haven't started writing the 6th one yet because I'm still figuring out the plot, so it'll be a while before I start posting it. I like to have about 10 chapters written before I start posting a story. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing! :)
