Will be there :)

I'm a newcomer. Diagnosed in October and soooo frustrated with these doctors, meds and god-awful symptoms. I'm debating taking a medical leave of absence from school until everything is figured out. I'm just excited to finally meet people who can relate.

@SleepyArtsy - Welcome, and can't wait to meet you! Eleven months out of the year, we have a much more casual meeting in which we can really get to know one another. This month, we'll use a little more formal format so that we can hear about what people learned at the Narcolepsy Network patient conference in October. *If* you have the time and energy and would like some time to get to know people a little better on Saturday, you'll be more than welcome to join the smaller group that will go out for coffee and/or an early dinner at 3pm after the support group meeting ends. We'll have time to vent, and answer questions, and just get to know one another better then.

@Geohff - So glad to have you as part of the group, and that you'll be there again on Saturday! :lol:

Sorry all I missed the meeting, both Mom & Dad spent time in Hospital in 4 day period ending yesterday. Everyone is back home and doing fine now.
