Hello,
I am looking for mothers who have children similar to my little boy. I need someone to talk to about what we are going through. Thanks.

Was the Charlotte's Web working for him, Tara?

I'm not sure which states (out your way) have the option for medical marijuana, but I certainly hope that you find a way. If it's not too personal...did you have to relocate back because of economic reasons?

While my kids don't have a seizure condition, I have read wonderful things about medical cannibis, specifically a "Charlotte's Web" strain that has been developed for children with seizure disorders.

From what I understand, it is administered in an oil or drop form. I'd encourage research into that, but understand that, if you don't live in an area that recognizes cannibis use for medical conditions, you may have to relocate in order to get him the care he needs.

I hope you find a solution!

Hello,
Yes, I had to come back to WV for financial reasons and I missed my family. It's a sad thing to have to move across the country because you cant get the medicine that works for your child. The medicine did work at times and he did still have some seizures because we never got to get his dose perfected. Maybe one day again I am planning to go back. Thanks for asking.

Hello,
Thanks for your reply. We actually moved to CO and we had him on the Charlottes Web. We had to come back to WV where it is illegal and I am just lost now. I want to get back out to CO, but I cant at this point. I am advocating for legalization here in WV, but keep running into brick walls. I believe my sons seizures and autism did start right after he received his vaccines. I will not stop trying for him, but until then his Clonazepam and Keppra are not working, so I need a drug that may help.
