What Do You Wish People Knew About Narcolepsy?

  1. Hi , thanks for sharing. Yes, we hear that a lot. Many people do not understand exactly what narcolepsy is. You might be interested in this article on of our contributors wrote to those without narcolepsy, I think it offers a great perspective: https://narcolepsy.sleep-disorders.net/living/dear-stranger/. Warmly, Kristin (Narcolepsy.Sleep-Disorders.net Team Member)

    1. I wish people knew that, just because you have narcolepsy, you're not necessarily going to just fall asleep without warning. Some people will, but others won't. It's a common misperception even within the PWN community.

      1. Sorry, autocorrect got me. That should have said it is a common MISCONCEPTION.
