He's been home since 2010, when he was sent back to the States due to severe combat PTSD, so it's not the sort of thing that wears off quickly, either.
Well, that's the sort of thing that Smallville would handle with a Distinction, I think. And then you would have things like

d4: Earn a Plot Point when you Increase the opposition's Afraid or Angry Stress Pool when it's used against you

d8: Earn a Plot Point when you Choose to have a sleepless night and not Recover your Afraid or Exhausted Stress

At least, that's how I would guess it would be done.

I expect there are relevant traits in GURPS, Hero System, and Tri-Stat, at least; and in FUDGE you can invent faults to represent them.
