Coping Strategies

If you find that you do have narcolepsy you will need to make adjustments in your life. It may take time for you to come to accept what having this disorder means for you. Pick your battles, but don't let anyone push you around or make you feel inferior. Narcolepsy is a very real neurological disorder. No matter how much you sleep, exercise, eat right, take supplements or any other behaviour, you cannot cure it...yet. Even with the currently available medication you will not be just like new or necessarily be able to do all that others do or all that you would like.
