Hi, I just found you when I googled “how to live with narcolepsy”. I was just diagnosed with narcolepsy without cataplexy in March. I watched most of your videos and just wanted to say thank you. I didn’t know what it was until my diagnoses. It is difficult to explain to others. My father is in the nursing home about a four hour drive away. Last time I went to see him I think I fell asleep 15 times while driving. I haven’t been back since then, I’m not sure he understands. I’m doing better now, taking 125mg nuvigil. Anyway, thanks you are doing a good and needed thing.
