SPEAKER: There's a few things-- and they're even traps that I fell into when I was in the process of finding out what was going on with me-- is that in the media, all we see is people falling asleep in their soup, and that's what's portrayed as narcolepsy. And sure, some people might actually experience that. But it's not necessarily to that level all the time.
So I remember, there was a few people that when I told them I was diagnosed, they were like, do we need to tie your ponytail to the back of the seat so you don't fall asleep in your soup? And I was like, no. You don't need to do that.
Oh, you're so lucky. You get to nap whenever you want. Which is the one that infuriates me. It's like, I don't get to nap. I have to nap. There is a very big difference. And if you had to nap, you wouldn't want to. Trust me.
And the people that are like, oh, I think I have that. I sleep all the time. I'm like, well, if you actually think you have it, go and see a doctor.
