smartyjones Posted October 23, 2015 Report Share Posted October 23, 2015 i don't think you are out of your mind -- I think you are aware of something -- something most people, even family members, are not aware of. many years ago, I was at a group of about 4-6 pandas moms. we were discussing our pandas child. we met again about 3 months later - we were all discussing how another child was now showing symptoms -- each of us! it was really bizarre. I remember my 2nd son, who is the older, having trouble at night -- something like night terrors as he was going to sleep. (it's funny how you actually do forget some things!) I said to dh , "are we just going to wait until he falls apart to take him in?" well, apparently we were, because some weeks later there was no doubt we needed to have him evaluated for pandas. the thing is - I even think now, if it had been him first, he could have flown under the radar as troublesome and many people could have had many explanations about his behavior. my 1st son is classic, no doubt pandas; the second is diagnosed - but not the slam dunk case of the first. 2nd has clear infection related anxiety and OCD behaviors. but he also has subtle anxiety and OCD behaviors, with a huge step up with infection. it is something that impedes his success, but not so much that it impedes his life, like the classic son. so, if I did not know what I know because of the 1st son, would the 2nd son be diagnosed? maybe, maybe not. whereas the 1st would certainly have. dasu 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
