Narcolepsy and Stress

Do you find that stress increases your daytime sleepiness or other symptoms?

  1. Yes even the slightest bit starts making me tired. There's no reason why subtle changes throughout the day should cause me to collapse. Tre, Team Member

    1. Stress and overstimulation have been the main catalysts for my fatigue and cataplexy attacks. Our house isn't the most serene place (haha) so I usually side-eye when I hear "destressing" as a preventative option.
      But I have noticed my energy to handle unnecessary drama or to hold onto hurts have been real low this past year. It's like my subconscious is saying "we have no time for this kind of stress...let that s%$# go!" haha

      1. Lol! Oh my gosh same here! This year I have seriously distanced myself from a lot of very close people. Just do not have the energy at all! I'm so sorry to hear about your struggle, I can definitely sympathise. Thanks so much for sharing and for the support! I hope things get better for you soon. x best wishes Iris xxx
