Narcolepsy - this contains more of my symptoms than any other N-info graphic I've found. I didn't realize - even after being correctly diagnosed - how many areas of my life altered with this disease. It took a while to shift from "fix it and move on" to "adjust for and achieve simultaneously" but I'm hopeful for the future
Narcolepsy is a sleep disorder that is characterized by excessive sleepiness, sleep attacks, sleep paralysis, hallucinations and, for some, sudden loss of muscle control (cataplexy). It affects roughly 1 in 2,000 to 3,000 people but can go undiagnosed for many years.
Narcolepsy is hard to diagnose, Cataplexy is even trickier. Your support would be greatly appreciated. On April 26, I will be walking in the DREAM BIGGER! Narcolepsy Walkathon 2014. Please help me raise Narcolepsy & Cataplexy awareness.
