I Have Narcolepsy

I really, really hate this illness. I have narcolepsy type II. Thank GOD I have medication for it now, but even with medication it is difficult. I'm no longer constantly falling asleep but I AM constantly tired. Doesn't matter how much sleep I get. I got nearly 11 hours last night. I still feel like I could sleep all day. My brain doesn't seem to have a natural "wake up" ability, there's never a point where it's like "alright I'm all good with sleep!"

And to add to that my dreams are incredibly vivid and realistic all of the time. To me my whole life my dreams have been like a separate reality I live in. I remember every single one of them. It can be really cool but it can also be terrible when it comes to nightmares. It's frustrating because really no one else I've ever met has had the same experience with dreams as me. I could write an entire autobiography for my life in dreams that is separate from my waking life autobio. I remember them all going back to when I was 5 years old. Who else remembers nearly every dream they've had since they were 5 years old....it's like my brain does not understand to store them as memories of things that are not real, and instead stores them in the area of things but that actually happened and are real experiences. It was very confusing for me as a little child. Sometimes I am still confused.
do you narcle off all the time ?
