Just saw yet another movie coming out with narcolepsy being featured as comedy. http://www.hollywood...can-life-267179 Why are movies about autism serious while narcolepsy is presented as comedy and often very unrealistic? I'm angry. How can the media be changed? Are we such a minority that we cannot be heard?

I'm not sure how I would want to be portrayed. While I think many people who know me underestimate the severity, I don't want to be depicted as incapable either.
