I'm in a large circle of people introducing myself and answering a question, everyone has the same response however, mine is opposite. By the time they get to me, I'm in a fog and I repeat what everyone else said. It's frustrating! Does this happen to anyone else?

  1. I definitely get this although I don't know if it's narcolepsy related or just anxiety. I'll have a whole response planned in my head and when it's time to come out "poof" it's gone and i just say what everyone else has said. The doctor thing too. Never thought it could be my cataplexy. Definitely something to think about.

    1. Yes all the time my husband gets frustrated sometimes because I'll say something 4 times

      1. That must be difficult for both of you, . Gentle hugs. - Lori (Team Member)

    2. Hi . I am certain you will find others who have shared your experience in this community and I hope they post here. One member posted the other day about experiencing mild cataplexy from stress each time she sees the doctor. By the time she recovers, the doctor is gone and she has asked none of the questions she planned to ask. Very frustrating, for sure. Gentle hugs. - Lori (Team Member).

      1. I always write questions beforehand

      2. That is smart of you. Thanks for sharing what helps. Warmly, Lori (Team Member)
