You’re so welcome. I’m beyond excited for this event!

I let everyone on my facebook know that if they want to understand me better then they need to join you. Tired of my 10 and 11 year having to explain that I’m not going to fall asleep like they show on TV.

Thank you, Linda! This will be a great opportunity for people new to narcolepsy. We’ll laugh. We’ll cry. We will raise awareness about the REAL narcolepsy!

Thanks for the opportunity to talk with others. This can only serve to help inviduals and families share their challenges as well as to celebrate the wins!

You’re so welcome, Jeff. This will be a presentation-style event but I hope to have more discussion-based events in the future. Thank you so much.

Where is a good site to order narcolepsy shirts/pens! I’m standing in the gap for my 7 year old son who has recently been diagnosed and I want to raise awareness 🙂 can’t wait for this live broadcast

Thank you so much for all that you do for all of us that live day in and day out with this disease. I do now try to find alot of positive to come out of this. And one is to share what I have learned over the past few years that I totally did not know. It took me 3 years to finally really accept and let anyone know I had it with the exception of my family. It is people, such as yourself who helped me along the way to not be ashamed of it or think I was crazy, let alone others thinking I was.
If I can help one person not feel the way I felt for several years, then I have accomplished what I love to do.
You are a true Inspiration to me along with so many others . Thank you for that!!
I look very forward to your presentation.
