You will be okay. You will be okay.
I wish I could reach through time and give you a big hug. I wish I could protect your heart from the pain.
It will not go away, but it will get more manageable each day. You will reach lows you never imagined, narcolepsy will challenge you in new ways. Hold on tight. It all matters, especially the lows, it all shapes you into who you will become, leading to the most amazing incredible journey.
You will find people who think you are more awesome for what you’ve been through. Unbelievable, I know!
Be kind to yourself. Let go. Fall. I promise the world will catch you.
You will be okay.
