PTSD

Dilema – Fiction or Nonfiction on PTSD Novel

So for the past few weeks I have not gotten any writing done. Why, you may ask? Because I can’t decide on whether to write a book on my experience with post traumatic stress disorder as nonfiction, or write in a fictional way but have it “based on a true story”.  So many questions run through my head:

1) Which version would hold the most weight my audience?

2) Which would be the most beneficial to others if they read my story?

3) In which version, would be the easiest for me to tell my story?

If you were to read a book on someones experience with post traumatic stress, would you want to read the true account, or would your rather read it in a fictional context, but know that the events that happened in the book were true? I welcome any feedback.
