Hi there @Black232Jack
Thank you for raising this topic here. From what you've described you have responded to this in a really positive way. Affirming your love and support, not making a huge deal of it but also checking in at a non-threatening time - these are all amazing ways of responding to your child coming out as pan-sexual.
It is a sensitive time for you both so it's also great that you're reaching out for support. I think all the emotions you are going through are really normal. Maybe you could try asking her to educate you about pan sexuality? That way she might feel empowered to speak about her identity and you will also be able to gauge how much she knows about it herself and what it means to her.
We have an article about helping your teen with coming out - you might wanna give it a read here.
There's also some great information and support available here for families through Twenty10 which is an LGBT+ organisation.
