Hey yall

My lil girl had them from infancy till about 6 years old she was taking Keppra and seeing a Neurologist and When they would tell me maybe she would out grow them..It left me feeling lost and helpless.She had an episode once and fell down a few stairs and we had to move..I was getting No sleep @ night for 2 years straight when it was at its worse ..Eventually she started learning how to alert us or attempt to..I cried yall and I was FELT so alone..I wish I had found you guys then...Happy to say now tho its been nearly 3 years and she has been seizure free..So I want you guys to hang in there and Im with yall all the way if anyone ever needs a friend or an ear. Peace,love,light,patience and strenght to everyone of yall..Hang in there

Hi my daughter also has doose shes now 5 and has had it since being 15 months old. she is on 3 meds and the ketogenic diet. She is almost seizure free, her seizures have reduced to virtually nothing now max 5 a day on a really bad day. It is a brutal disease but hang in there i would strongly recommend the ketogenic diet it has been a game changer for us and has been proven to be the most effective way to control doose syndrome. Good luck x
