NARCOLEPSY Q and A! Answering Your Most Asked Questions About My Sleep Disorder

Hi everybody! A little over a year ago I uploaded a video all about having Narcolepsy and the response I got from it was SO MUCH MORE than I could have ever thought. From that video, I feel so much less alone but want to answer the most commonly asked questions in that comment section. This video answers all of those plus a ton I get in my Instagram DMs and I figured the easiest way to answer the same question over and over again is to just put them all in one video. I hope you enjoy!

P.S. Sorry about the construction noise you may hear, I tried talking around when they were being quiet but then they would start up again and I really wanted to get this filmed for all of you 😀
