Where is the most embarrassing place you have fallen asleep?

Share your answers below!

  1. In a job interview. Standing up running camera on a live network newscast. Front row of a crazy loud jazz concert.

    1. It sounds like those were some difficult situations, . Were you at least met with understanding and compassion? I hope you got the job anyway. Thinking of you. - Lori (Team Member)

  2. I was out to dinner with my friends and I fell asleep at the table. The restaurant was very noisy and very loud . I also fell asleep at work.

    1. I hope your friend and your employer were supportive and understanding. Warm wishes. - Lori (Team Member)

  3. I have a few. Meetings or training classes with work would be one. The toilet would be another and the last would not be so much embarrassed as I was frustrated or ashamed. Standing behind my daughter (around 6-7 at the time) before school one morning I fell asleep and poured my (cold) Starbucks Double Shot on her head. She was so sweet about it too. She always had been understanding.

    1. You must have felt terrible, , but I am glad you have raised such a kind and empathetic daughter, one who understands that narcolepsy is not your fault. Thanks for chiming in. - Lori (Team Member)

  4. I played basketball in high school, I was benched for a few minutes and fell asleep, they woke me up to go back into the game lol!!

    Fun fact: I was voted most likely to fall asleep during graduation! (I stayed awake, during the entire ceremony which included a full church service! Church has never been easy for me!)

    1. I am amazed that you could pop right back up and play, ! You have my respect! Were you diagnosed with narcolepsy in high school? Staying awake in church can be hard for people without sleep disorders. I am sure it is very difficult with narcolepsy. Wishing you the best. - Lori (Team Member)

    2. it onset mid freshman year, I had the diagnosis by sophomore year. And thank you!! My ability to pop back up saves me. I take naps in my car during work, no alarms, wake up in 5-10 mins and walk back into work like nothing was ever wrong
