Bio: Hi there! I'm a 30 year old who has battled with mental illness and a neuropsychiatric condition Autoimmune Encephalitis/PANS (PANS-Pediatric Acute Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome) from a very young age. It's time we start talking about those of us who struggle with mental illness and neuropsychiatric conditions but are functional in the world, maybe even lead quite bright and vibrant lives as we struggle along. I'm a teacher, lover of my pup, and passionate about advocacy for people with exceptionalities! Welcome and please enjoy my journey!

  1. I have nothing but respect for anyone who openly shares their story of living with mental illness. It’s definitely a journey and the more support the better. I wish you all the best.


  2. Hi Alyse,

    Thank you for sharing your story. I’m so glad you finally got a correct diagnosis of PANS. I wish you all the best in your recovery, and I’m looking forward to reading more.

    P.S. Would it be okay if I linked to your blog on my “Resources” page?
