Not so long ago, I was facing invasive brain surgery with no guarantee of survival. My daughter recommended that I try one more thing to combat debilitating and unpredictable seizures. She suggested hemp-based cannabidiol oil. At that time, I was suffering twelve to fifteen seizures per month. My doctors wanted to drill holes in my skull to implement nodes. Fortunately, hemp oil is completely legal and I’ve been able to purchase it online. Since starting a regular dosage, I have been nearly seizure free. The seizures first started in my sleep, and I’d wake up disoriented. I wasn’t sure what was happening to me. I’d wake up after biting my tongue. One time, I had trouble remembering who I was, which frightened me. I went to see a doctor and was diagnosed with a nocturnal seizure disorder. I started on medication, but didn’t feel stable. I gave up my job as a bus driver because of safety reasons. When a seizure comes on, there’s no way to stop it. My seizures gradually became more frequent and severe. One minute, I’d be eating dinner, and then I’d wake up in an ambulance. My family was afraid to leave me alone, and the side effect of the medication were ruining my quality of life. When my daughter mentioned the idea of medicinal marijuana, I was anxious to try it. I knew it couldn’t make my condition or life any worse. The day after starting on CBD oil, I noticed an improvement. Although I still suffered a seizure, it was extremely mild. After two months of taking CBD oil, I decreased the amount from 5,000 mg per day to 3,000 mg per day and stopped taking antidepressants. With CBD oil, I feel better than ever. I’ve gone three months without a seizure. I’ve learned to use the CBD oil when I feel a seizure coming on, and it stops them. I’m unsure why none of the many doctors I saw mentioned medical marijuana as a viable treatment. Cannabis is entirely natural, has no side effects and costs considerably less than conventional medications.
