Jack is 6 years old today and has diagnosis of global developmental delay of unknown etiology which presents with ataxia, absence seizures and autism. Despite these challenges, he has a smile that can melt anyone’s heart, and infectious laugh and can cuddle like no other. His seizures emerged around 18 months and over the years he has had such horrible side effects from any and all pharmaceutical anti epileptic drugs. He struggles so much with his motor skills, feeling calm and organized, and with sleep- all things these medications have negatively impacted. I look forward to the day that cannabis medicines are easily accessible for my son so I can naturally improve his anxiety, attention and seizure control without the horrible side effects of pharma.
