Discovery Channel Narcolepsy Video

Here’s the video from the Discovery Channel’s recent Narcolepsy Program (my spotlight begins just after 16 minutes).

I especially enjoyed Dr. Joseph Lieberman’s insight and the other patient, Kelly’s story. 

Narcolepsy: New Strategies for Diagnosis and Treatment will air on the Discovery Channel again on Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012 at 8 a.m.

    Excellent presentation on Narcolepsy. Reassured me that my specialist and I are on the right treatment path.

    I really enjoyed seeing your story on the Discovery channel this past weekend. You are an exceptional advocate for the narcolepsy community. Keep up the great work!

      Hi Pam, Thank you so much for watching! It’s an honor and joy to advocate for others. Big smiles and happy holidays to you and your family, Julie

    Thanks from Canada. Great project Julie and Narcolepsy Network.
    Narcolepsy is not rare just rarely diagnosed. Effects on quality of life are vastly under estimated. I challenge each viewer to share this with a teacher, a friend and a medical professional.

      Thank you, Hazel! I’m so glad you enjoyed the program. Great idea to ask people to share with others. With gratitude, Julie

    Thank you so much for posting this Julie! The program will not be aired here in Australia so it is great to be able to watch it online. I wish I could make all the Dr’s have have been to over the years sit down and watch this!

      Hi Nicole, Thank you so much for your comment from Australia! I agree, I wish all the doctors who missed our cases would watch this. Lol! I see every conversation I have about narcolepsy as an awareness opportunity. You never know when you might be changing someone’s life. 😉

    Julie: Congratulations on your book on narcolepsy! I just learned about it yesterday from your email and just finished watching the Discovery Channel segment. I am going to order a copy from Amazon today and look forward to reading your story. I can hardly believe that it has been 17 1/2 years since I wrote, “Narcolepsy: A Funny Disorder That’s No Laughing Matter.” A lot of progress has been made in research and treatment since then. Hope to meet you some day–maybe at NN conference. Thanks for your advocacy on behalf of all of us with narcolepsy.

      Hi Marguerite, Thank you so much for your comment. I’m so incredibly honored that you will check out my book. Your book provided such solace and great information for me when I was recently diagnosed, so I cannot thank you enough. With gratitude and smiles, Julie
