Just 15 minutes into the 5 o’clock news today, NBC Washington featured an in-depth report about my experience with narcolepsy and cataplexy. Please share to help raise awareness!

Julie Flygare had the world in the palm of her hand. She was in law school, she was an avid runner and fitness buff, and she had a ton of friends. But when she started experiencing extreme exhaustion and bouts of unusual muscle weakness, no one could tell her what was happening.

I am so honored to be featured in this segment. Thank you to NBC’s team – Doreen Gentzler, Lauren and Chester!

    I love how the video was both really informative about narcolepsy generally but also told your personal story 🙂
