"Your cause is just, but I can do nothing".
And while it will have its day and a full Senate vote in the near future, the comments left me reeling.
I am glad and now I see, very lucky we have HB105. Because of that little bill, we have Bug's new treatment.
He may still be seizing, not as often for certain, but his life is so much better.
This is what he gets two times a day that reduced his seizures by more than 50% now that he is almost 6 months into it.
He smiles more, he responds to his name, school says he is making progress and just the other day, he was holding his little brothers hand.
I don't care how skeptical one might be about the efficacy of CBD, be skeptical, but do NOT ignore my boy. HE is proof that it helps. I have a part of him back, that part that I missed so much. I am realistic about it, completely. He still has seizures, but I didn't think he would ever just STOP seizing with the addition of ONE medication, not with his history and the amount of unknowns in his little body. But what we have with him now says that he is doing better, better than we ever thought possible. He has good runs now, of a few days and even a week with no seizures, and this last week: 4 total.
So poo poo the medicinal value of cannabis all you want, but don't look away when I tell you: it helps a great deal. And that is FACT, not fear, not desperation, others are reporting it too. My little man has found a way to break down a part of that glass wall he is trapped behind. And now I feel like we are handing him a hammer.
