Let’s all give a warm welcome to Kim, the latest member of our community!
I really empathize with your experiences with narcolepsy. The silver lining in all of this is that you finally understand why you were falling asleep all those times. It’s clear to me from reading your profile that this condition has impacted so many areas of your life and, you’re right in that nobody will be able to truly understand narcolepsy unless they deal with it.
The close support system that you need is here. Although family and friends are a strong social network, I think that you will find a different kind of support here at Ben’s Friends. Here you will find people that may have the same experiences that you have had and can empathize with you and help you out. You may even be able to help others with your knowledge of narcolepsy.
Please feel free to get involved in the discussion and ask questions - this community is here for you.
Once again, welcome to Ben’s Friends, Kim.
