Today we officially start the countdown to the release of Stolen Childhood on October 18th with our IMPACTS Campaign!
When dealing with PANDAS/PANS, there are many things that get impacted in both the child and parents lives. Not only are they impacted physically and health wise but also socially, emotionally and mentally as well in many different ways. One of the big ways that many parents might be impacted when dealing with PANDAS is getting diagnosed with PTSD or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
PTSD is a mental health condition that’s triggered by experiencing/witnessing a traumatic event.
“A lot of parents are diagnosed with PTSD, and that’s a very real thing. Being exposed to that trauma over and over and over again. It’s incredibly damaging. And even on the days when our children are doing well, we’re terrified of what’s next.” – Jennifer Davis PANDAS Parent
