My Story About PANS/PANDAS is a heartfelt story written for kids who have PANS/PANDAS and their family, friends and educators. Wonderful addition to any classroom! Once a typical boy, Owen’s journey with PANS/PANDAS began after he was exposed to an infection that changed everything. Abruptly faced with severe anxiety, OCD, tics, and rage, Owen finds himself navigating a world full of doctors, medical tests, IVIG, and even weird smoothies. Likening his journey to a climb up a challenging hill, Owen helps the reader understand that sometimes the path is straight and easy, but sometimes you must zig-zag or find another way to the top.
