Epilepsy Blog Relay: Sharon on the ketogenic diet and CBD oil

This post is part of the Epilepsy Blog Relay™, which will run from June 1 to June 30, 2018.  Follow along!

Sharon’s Story

Sharon Ross has a rare type of epilepsy. Though she has experienced seizures, the main impact the condition has on her life is her cognition. According to Sharon, her memory and processing are so poor that one neuropsychologist said it was as though she had a traumatic brain injury.  She has three young children, is a committed Jew and is currently on the ketogenic diet and taking CBD oil to treat her epilepsy.

About Sharon’s blog

Sharon’s blog started almost two years ago when she was stuck in a room and wasn’t allowed to go out for five days whilst neurologists watched and measured her seizure activity during video-telemetry. Her posts tell the story of her journey to find an effective treatment but she also likes to muse about parenthood, mental health and faith.  Her latest post is entitled ‘Research Has Shown That Epilepsy Can Be Treated By a High-Fat, Low-Carb Diet. Why Aren’t More Adults Treated This Way?
