Meet The Boy With The ‘Exorcist’ Disorder

Could you imagine living with Linda Blair’s character in the exorcist? That became the reality for Johnanne and Jez Hewlett after their son developed PANS/PANDAS, a condition that affects the neurological system. The condition which they believe was initially triggered by mold in their home caused their son William to morph into an aggressive, violent demon-like state with sunken eyes and pale skin. His parents said he didn’t recognize them, begged them to kill him and even complained of blood dripping down the curtains. They eventually were able to diagnose his condition and have been able to maintain his mental state with antibiotics.
