THE STORY:

To celebrate National Sleep Awareness Week 2016, I will be participating in Project Sleep's second annual SLEEP IN. Project Sleep is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of sleep as a pillar of health—a cause dear to my heart!

Since I was 16, I remember having symptoms from my Narcolepsy and Cataplexy. I always seemed tired but I brushed it off as having too much stress and just being a teenager. The cataplexy symptoms were harder to brush off, but when you are that age you don't think there could be anything wrong with you so I let those just slide too.

After I went to college, I could see that I was different. I constantly had trouble staying awake in class. I could barely stay awake to study. This was not good for my grades, my relationships, and my self esteem. I struggled with depression, stress, and anxiety -- all of which I know how seem to exacerbate my narcolepsy.

Thankfully I was able to sort it out somehow and finally in 2013 I was diagnosed. Since then I have made my health and wellness a bigger priority and want people to understand what Narcolepsy is really like!

Over the weekend of March 11th I’ve pledged to SLEEP IN for 48 hours. I want people to be aware of this disease and help themselves or others who may be suffereing from this or other sleep disorders. Please consider a donation! Learn more at: www.project-sleep.com/sleepin

Good cause. I recently found out I have sleep apnea. Has made a world of difference. I really appreciate my doctor actually getting to the bottom of my complaint of just feeling tired and not myself. I never would have guessed it was a testable sleeping condition. 2 years ago
