Autism and medical marijuana
From Kreed’s World: “A video explaining what’s been happening, especially the events of last night. Today has been on and off. We have figured out that it appears he has a cold. Which causes massive headaches and weird feelings for him. And his blood sugars plunge every few hours. We have to dose him more frequently with medical marijuana to keep him comfortable. When it wears off he goes back to raging. It’s quite the dance we now have to do. And exhausting. So I say to people- are you autism aware? Do you know that some families deal with incredible self injury and aggression even with something like a cold. He doesn’t understand a cold, only that his head hurts and he wants to cause damage. Sometimes the most we can do in a day is survive. And some days we barely do.
This is our life right now, barely surviving and trying to get Kreed through this sickness with minimal damage. You know, after we already got him through a neuropathy flare up, tonic clonic seizure with his heart stopping, and a status migraine post seizure. Now a cold. Some days I don’t know what to say. This is our life. Our story. Our truths. Nothing more, nothing less.”
In suPport of marijuana, however have you ever checked out the link between your childs diet and his bEhaviors? Im an a care giver who works woth kids with autisim, and this is a common thing that parents seem to be running into
May God bless kreed and you, his family. i totally understand as i have a daughter who is 25 years old and is self injurous and aggressive. she has very limited language and is not able to express when something is bothering her medically, emotionally etc.
just wanted to let you know i feel what you’re feeling and there is nothing in the world we wouldn’t do to help our little girl have joy and laughter in her life. the smallest things can put a smile on her face and that’s what i pray for everyday, to see her smile. to somehow know that even though she cannot convey her feelings, that through the grace of god, she knows how much she is loved and cared for and that we, her family, are there for her always. most importantly, we will not stop until we find a way to help her and everyone else like her.
