I’m a single mom of Six I work full-time and suffer from narcolepsy. I struggle on a daily basis trying to stay awake so the Dr has me on class five stimulants. The side effects are headaches and mood swings when my meds ware off . I’m just tired of being tired. My employer doesn’t understand my disorder nor cares enough to learn about it.
Amanda lives with narcolepsy. The symptoms of this incurable disorder include: falling asleep unexpectedly, extreme sleepiness throughout the day, disrupted sleep during the night, sudden loss of muscle control and even hallucinations.
But the impact of narcolepsy in daily life reaches far beyond these symptoms.
