PDA by PDA-ers:
From Anxiety to Avoidance and Masking to Meltdowns
Compiled by Sally Cat (she/her)
“To think of PDA as merely involving demand avoidance is to me akin to thinking of tigers as merely having stripes.”
This book is a unique window into adult Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), exploring the diversity of distinct PDA traits through the voices of over 70 people living with and affected by the condition.
Sally Cat, an adult with PDA, has successfully captured the essence of a popular online support group in book form, making the valuable insights available to a wider audience, and creating a much-needed resource for individuals and professionals. Candid discussions cover issues ranging from overload and meltdowns, to work, relationships and parenting.
