      I'm Type 1 too! When I was a kid, before I was diagnosed, I would fall asleep on the toliet...A LOT.

      Not very crazy but buses just provide the perfect environment to make me sleep. The amount of times that I've been on my way to work and other passengers who know where I get off have to wake me up so I don't miss my stop is uncanny

      We had to step away at our lab job working with prions because we were a few seconds from absolutely crashing.

      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

      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 😂 it was very ironic

      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 😳 but funny now 🤗

        @IcecreamMoon 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 😅😅😅
