Surely it should be "Pandaemic"?
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Only if pandas can catch the thing. I'd like to find out when the term ceased to mean a disease that afflicted large numbers of humans (epidemic) and one that primarily affected animals (zootic), and got applied to the (effectively) human-only condition.

Hilariously, thanks to the disruption in my diet, I've actually dropped about 20 pounds in the past many months -- and am not happy about the matter.
