Debunking the Narcolepsy Myth
A Presentation by: Julie Flygare, JD
Narcolepsy is a serious neurological disorder affecting 1 in every 2,000 people, yet it is often perceived as a joke. Julie began experiencing mysterious symptoms at age 22 while in law school. She was diagnosed with a serious case of narcolepsy with cataplexy at age 24.
In this presentation, Julie describes hiding her narcolepsy from others to avoid prejudice before deciding to speak out and break the cycle of misunderstanding. For Julie, sickness has been a second chance at life – and by standing up for what she believes in, Julie has become a catalyst for change, giving others the courage to stand tall and proud while overcoming adversity.
Packed with personal stories, vivid descriptions and visuals, this webinar offers a unique first-hand look at living well with narcolepsy.
- Symptom Development
- Path to Diagnosis
- Treating Narcolepsy

This is my favorite presentation to give and I’m honored to share it in ASBA’s Lunch Break CSTE program. Thank you to ASBA for generously extending this invitation to allow the general public to listen in and participate!
