    The most embarrassing would have to be at dinner literally my head fell into my pasta bc I passed out asleep and I had it all over me. So embarrassing ๐Ÿ˜ณ but funny now ๐Ÿค—

      thats the mental image people think of when they hear "narcolepsy" wow!! Mine is probably before in a lab class with tall tables and stools instead of chairs. The stool was backless and tall enough that i had to hop a little to get on it already (im short). I passed out, started fulling falling head first towards the tile, and then the guy next to me at the table literally caught my body midair. I woke up confused why he was hugging me and the entire class was staring in silence ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

    I fell asleep for about 20 minutes and had sleep paralysis in the doctors office waiting for them to come in with results- results were that I had Type 1 Narcolepsy ๐Ÿ˜‚ it was very ironic

    I fell asleep in a library over night, at a party, and during the part of the sleep study you need to stay awake for
