    1. I see you are new here, . Welcome to the community! Such great advice! Thank you! Have you been diagnosed long? Warm wishes. - Lori (Team Member)

  2. My faith, choosing Joy everyday, and knowing that I am a stronger person than I was before Narcolepsy is what gets me through each day. I have been living with Narcolepsy/Cataplexy for 22 years.

    1. That is a long time to live with narcolepsy, . You must have been young when you were diagnosed. I am glad you have your faith to lean on and that you can still find joy in each day after all these years. - Lori (Team Member)

  3. You are not “lazy” or “just bored”.

    Even some of the people who are generally so supportive said these things when I first got diagnosed while in college. People don’t always understand, and that’s okay in my opinion. I’m 6 years into my diagnosis and even I’m still learning.

    1. Those are such important reminders, . Thanks for chiming in. Best wishes. - Lori (Team Member)
