Hey Everyone! I am working on a presentation/ speech to inform others about times when people with narcolepsy are discriminated against in the work force. If any of you would be willing to share your stories and would not mind me using it in a presentation I would most appreciate it! Thanks!

When is the presentation due? I'm asking because I've filed two employment discrimination lawsuits (won one, lost one--the one I won I had an attorney, the one I lost I did pro bono) and they're long stories.

Hi EJohnson,

I've got a long story as well, some of which is told in my journal on the Daily Strength narcolepsy forum. I can't tell the story now, but feel free to private message me to remind me, and I'll probably be able to tell you the rest either tomorrow or sometime in the coming week.

Would you please explain the context of your presentation? Are you a student, a professional, both? And to whom will the presentation be made, and at what institution? Thanks,

Saraiah

Hey! thanks for your response on my question. I am hoping to get this speech together some time by the end of September. I don't necessarily need a full story, just maybe how you knew you were being discriminated against or if it became a serious matter in your life.
