“From the beginning of my adulthood, I have had a type of seizure known as myoclonic seizures. Unaware of what they were and unconscious of what brought them on, I lived my younger adult life thinking what I experienced in my most private and painful moments was nothing to be concerned about. The seizures my brain and body experienced, I thought, were normal because of whatever emotional and mental distress I experienced at the different points in my tumultuous young life. I didn’t know much about epilepsy or even consider anything like seizures. One day, approximately four years ago, I had two violent deaths in my family within a span of one month. Around that same time, I was heavily involved in a stressful love relationship that was turning for the worst. It was during that time that I experienced the most serious seizure episode in my life. Now, a seizure is not a disease, but a symptom of many different disorders that can affect the brain. A seizure is a sudden surge of electrical activity in the brain that usually affects how a person appears or acts for a short time. The nature of seizures varies because the lines of the brain control different behavior movement and experiences. So many different things can occur during a seizure. Some seizures can hardly be noticed, while others are totally disabling. Whatever the brain and body can do normally, can also occur during a seizure. That big seizure I told you about, has a seizure type, it’s known as Focal Onset Seizures. Focal onset seizures can start in one area or group of cells on one side of the brain. When a person is awake and aware during a seizure, it’s called a focal aware seizure. In my case, I was awake and aware at the time my body and brain began to seize. My tongue became heavy in my mouth and twitched around. My neck began to randomly twitch on its right-side and my arms did a sort of rhythmic jerking. I could not speak despite my attempts. Tears fell from my eyes. During brief periods the jerks stopped, but I could not move my limbs until the jerks returned. This episode went on for a span of half an hour. Over the following months, I would have random seizures every other day for two months. Recently, a friend and avid CBD (Cannabidiol) user, briefed me on CBD and its many uses for a list of medical issues and ailments. Up until that time, I had only known about medical marijuana and its uses (never used) but never heard about CBD or Cannabis’ effect on seizures (weird, I know). So, I went to this guy called “Google” and began my search to learn about CBD. Here’s what I got so far.
