Remember last year when I had the 12 Days of PANDAS Sucks, and I posted a blog daily for 12 days straight? Yes, me too…and that is why I didn’t do it this year. Hahahaha! JUST KIDDING!!! I was too busy redesigning PANDAS Sucks this year to run a blogging marathon. BUT this 12th Day post popped up in my Facebook Memories today, which is weird because 1/5/15 was the 12 Day of PANDAS Sucks…I must have been behind. But I thought this article was still pertinent, so I made a few updates to the info/links and am reblogging it.
Everybody can be a PANDAS/PANS Advocate, and it can take whatever shape or form you want. The important part is that you do it from the heart and do what feels good to you. Forced Advocacy is never a good idea. I’m not a big fan of shoving Advocacy/Awareness efforts down anybody’s throat. And I do NOT want them shoved down mine. It can be a form of shaming and that is never, ever helpful. NEVER! I have enough guilt as it is and do not need to add more. I certainly don’t want to add to anybody else’s guilt either. You have to do what is best for you in the moment. If you can help in the PANDAS/PANS Advocacy efforts…great! If the current PANDAS/PANS Advocacy efforts can help you…great!

On this twelfth day of PANDAS Sucks, I give to you TWELVE WAYS TO ADVOCATE ALL YEAR LONG. You might ask, “Advocate for PANDAS/PANS all year long? Just what is that supposed to mean Sarah?” To which I would reply, Well [insert your name here], advocating for PANDAS/PANS all year long can mean pretty much whatever you want it to mean.”
