I am a narcolepsy spokesperson and the award-winning author of Wide Awake and Dreaming: A Memoir of Narcolepsy. Living in Los Angeles and speaking across the country, I love opening people's hearts and minds to the real narcolepsy, a neurological disorder affecting 3 million people worldwide. Thanks for stopping by!
