Just when I think my cataplexy is almost gone, I have a weekend like this last and I get to laughing...leading to "that feeling"
The joy of it was I never felt so safe when it happened.

ok. . . 2 quick stories. The first time my husband, boyfriend at the time, witnessed my CAT, he ran to the fridge and rubbed ice all over me trying to keep me conscious. He was hysterical. I finally told him what was going on when I came to. OK maybe that one wasn't that funny but this one was great.
I was at a concert/festival when I was 16. I was standing in line at the conscession area and boom. . . When I could finally speak, the paramedics with their ambulance golf cart were there asking my boyfriend what I had "shot up." I laughed, but got fuzzy again. Finally, I got up and when we explained what had happened, I signed a release not to go to the hospital (at 16 I don't know how that one flew), so they put my boyfriend and I on the ambulance/golf cart thing, turned the lights and sirens on, and drove us over the entire yard, through the crowd, right in front of the stage. It was great!

I am a wreck when people die. And funerals are really embarrassing.
I had to go to one last week of my friend who was robbed shot and killed at the bar he worked at.
I always have to be careful to not go to close to the caskets so I dont fall in.
Not only would that be horribly devastating for the families and me if it were to ever happen...
I am totally afraid of dead people... so it would make it worse I'm sure.

I have a pretty bizarre sense of humor too. when I was reading your story I about lost it! That is totally something I would do! Not because I truly care about them but because it would make them uncomfortable. And that to me is funny! But to answer your question... I don't know. My quirky SOH comes from my dads side of the family. we are all a little crazy. It's great cuz it drives my mom nuts!
I also have told people to shut up till I get up. mostly cuz I stop breathing alot during my cataplexy. So even if I dont land badly, it still hurts really bad.

Maybe tomorrow I will be able to laugh at this. Right now I am still sick from the tetnus shot. ARGH!

Anyway, most of my attacks are funny if I'm with other people. But if I home alone or something there are just annoying and sometimes scary. Does anybody else have a problem when you are trying to be really witty and make a good joke? It's like my body has a spike of, idk, something and sometimes I can't even finish the funny thing I'm trying to say! So annoying! Oh and I have no idea if this has anything to do with cataplexy or not but I have a bad reaction to adrenaline. Even just a little dose or it (like when I'm a little excited about a new movie I've been wanting to see) makes me start shaking all over. It's really weird.
