Bryan Anderson would love to show people what it's like for a wounded soldier to get back to normal life -- but he can't.
As he puts it, "I wouldn't call this a normal life."
It's not losing limbs in Iraq that skews Anderson's life, to his way of thinking.
It's his whirlwind schedule of television shows and films, meeting celebrities and constant traveling that's unusual for a 26-year-old guy from Rolling Meadows.
Almost two years after a roadside bomb blew off both of Anderson's legs and his left arm, he tells his story in "Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq," at 9:30 p.m. Sunday on HBO.
He predicts the documentary will hit home with audiences wondering what life is like for soldiers suffering traumatic injuries in the war.

PTSD is an anxiety disorder that is related to surviving a traumatic event, in which you feel your life or someone else's life is threatened. These events can be catastrophic, such as natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and war zones. Often times the event may be more individualized, such as a serious car accident, physical or sexual abuse, or animal attack.
