Narcolepsy - Anne

I have Narcolepsy with Cataplexy. How would you feel if when you start laughing your muscles are paralyzed and you end up on the ground, unable to move or talk?  You just have to lie there on the ground until it wears off and you can finally move and tell people I'm fine, you shouldn't have called an ambulance. The ambulance came and I explained to them that no I didn't need to go to the hospital.

It's an autoimmune disease that causes me to not enter in to the restful phase of sleep.  Try going without sleep for 3 days straight. That's what it feels like. You would die sooner without sleep that you would without food. I am constantly sleep-deprived, which debilitates me, so I can no longer do portraits.  Those require a focus I no longer am capable of, due to the disease. Basically it causes ADHD problems and executive functioning problems.
