Adjusting to narcolepsy in law school wasn't easy. The treatments improved my symptoms but did not erase them. A few months after the diagnosis, I reached an all-time low, realizing narcolepsy was a serious illness I would face every day of my life. There was no cure.
It is not normal to constantly feel sleepy or have involuntary sleep attacks after a good night's rest. While some physicians have difficulty diagnosing narcolepsy, there are many institutions around the country that are capable of providing proper testing and treatment.
