  1. Living with narcolepsy is definitely a roller coaster. Thanks for opening up about what you personally struggle with. I hope you can find some positive aspects that help you get through the daily struggles. I try to focus on the things that have caused growth in my life (even within my narcolepsy symptoms), and with that positive mindset, I feel like my symptoms are more manageable. Obviously, I still have some ups and downs (like we all do!), but I try to keep myself in a positive headspace to help me get through it all. Wishing you well!
