Pendulum, a new middle-grade novel
by SE German
In his early years, Ben loved to run around, be silly and play Star Wars, Spiderman and Toy Story. Just after his sixth birthday and days before Christmas, Ben developed aggressive facial tics. His personality and behaviour changed from happy, funny, energetic and silly to anxious, obsessive, emotional, angry and depressed.
After visiting over 20 doctors, getting seven misdiagnoses and his mental health declining further, Ben is finally diagnosed with PANDAS. A little-known and understood disorder without a cure.
