So I went to a formal the other night with my friends who thankfully knows i have narco. But I drank a little more than normal(probably 4 drinks) and I started to microsleep while dancing. It was so weird, my friend kept asking if I was okay and I was just so confused because I didn't remember the past few seconds or minutes. I continued to fall into microsleeps, while sitting, walking, talking. Usually if I only have 1 or 2 drinks I'm okay. And I remember like 2 years ago pre narcolepsy I used to be able to drink a lot more and even if I was drunk I never experienced anything like this before. I think there was some mild cataplexy thrown in with the sleep attacks as well. I guess I've learned not to drink that much ever again. Thank god I was with someone I trusted. But has this happened to anyone else before? microsleeping with drinking?

Alcohol always multiplies my derp factor. If I'm having one of my rare good days, I can down shot after shot and not feel a thing. I once did 2 Irish Carbombs back to back. But when I'm really sick, one Smirnoff Ice or Mike's Hard is enough to make me stumbling, cross-eyed drunk.
