My family and friends found it amusing and called it a special quirk of mine since I could doze off anywhere - whether it be at the pool, the beach, or even during a 9-hour car ride.

Clutching packets of papers and pamphlets on treatment options, I walked alongside my mother in silence, both of us struggling to comprehend the situation.

When I disclose my narcolepsy diagnosis to people, I often receive a response that frustrates me. They say things like, Really? I never would have guessed.
