“Am I dreaming?” I asked myself, walking into the Sirius XM Radio studios this morning. I peered into each soundproof spaceship-like studio with wide eyes.
Today, I was a guest on the BROADMINDED show – the honor of a lifetime.
Strangely, I wasn’t nervous. The Broads, Christine and Molly, are funny, friendly and down-to-earth. Besides the headphones and big microphones, I felt like I was chatting with girlfriends over coffee – only with a national audience listening in, I suppose!
We covered A LOT in the interview. I loved Christine and Molly’s candid honesty. As a special treat, you can listen to the full interview here.
Of all the narcolepsy awareness work I’ve done, today was very special. Broadminded’s Christine admitted that when they first considered interviewing me, she worried, “Will she fall asleep in the studio?” When she read more, she quickly realized narcolepsy wasn’t like the movies…
I couldn’t help but smile, realizing:
others are listening,
perceptions are shifting,
misconceptions are melting away.
For me, this is a dream come true! Thank you, Jennifer, Christine, Molly and Scott for making this possible. Other exciting news, the Broads assigned a hot celebrity look-a-like: Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order and they proclaimed me an “Unbelievable Broad!”
