I had my first seizure when i was 18 months old and soon after was diagnosed with epilepsy, I have mainly nocturnal seizures either when falling asleep or waking but when I’m ill, upset or tired I will have daytime seizures and on many occasions i have injured myself from falling and hitting my head. Throughout my life I’ve been on numerous medications, anti epileptic drugs, sedatives, anti depressants etc.. Nothing stopped my seizures and the side effects of the medications were horrible, I was constantly tired and sick. I’ve been passed around from consultant to consultant, and not one of them knew me or what i needed so they either just threw more drugs at me which I’d already tried or tried to say i may not even be epileptic. An accident and emergency doctor once said to me that my epilepsy was an atypical case and that maybe doctors didn’t understand it so that’s why i was being passed around. After spending most of the summer a year ago in hospital due to seizures then being told by a consultant i had to wait 18 months plus for tests before they could help i felt completely let down and abandoned, i mean I’ve had epilepsy for over 30 years couldn’t these tests have been done before? what do i do for the next year and a half? so I turned to the internet and found that medical marijuana was being used to treat epilepsy, i tried it and guess what it works!!!
