new---sons Dr explaned to us that because his body has problems with rem - its when he has a trigger no matter what the trigger is his body goes to sleep/ rem without him whether he likes it or not--lack of sleep very little rem to no rem at all he pays the price-his body goes to sleeps but his mind is stuck in a night mare of not being able to move- he hears all whats going on- understands whats going on- feels the pain when he hits the floor - he screams in silence no one can hear -when he falls on the hot road and can do nothing except wait for someone to move him- if you open his eyelids he can see-its a little blury- he understand what hes seeing--no muscle tone limp as a wet noodle- his world our world

I got some good ones. Cataplexy sixty feet up a tree I was working on
I fell asleep at 10000 ft during a storm that put out 5 feet of snow in three hours walked out 8 miles to a plowed rd where I flagged down a truck.
I had cataplexy while walking down a steep riverbank. Right in. Yeah . Total helmet sponsor

I had a bad experience the other day been talking in dining room to some family, do you know them solid wooden chairs that have high backs? I was stood next to one felt a cataplexy coming on tried to move away ended up with my stomach on the top of the high back and my head was just of the seat and legs were of the floor luckly my brother in law and my dad grabbed me as the chair started to fall back with my weight. it f****** hurt got bruised stomach
and felt sick once I come out on my attack.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->


Oh man! Your about as dangerous as me! Here is my top five worst cataplexic attacks:

1. falling and landing on a lawnmower. (thank god it wasn't running!)
2. falling and busting a statue with my head.
3. falling while walking down the street into oncoming traffic.
4. falling and denting some ones car in the parking lot with my head...( yeah I got a thick skull so what?)
5. falling all over the place barely able to walk for a good long time during two diffrent funerals. Both times I was accused of being drunk and disrespectful. oh yeah, I'm a drama queen too. I almost forgot.

We should get together and tell each other bad jokes sometime. we can record it an put it on You tube. Maybe we will get a sponser and have our own show! Stu can be our special guest. It would be great fun! Cuz sometimes you just gotta learn to laugh at yourself. Because Noone is laughing <i>with</i> you until you do. they're just laughing at you.
