participating in so much, the misunderstanding of explanation and the problematics around certain participation.

Why; for me mainly because of Cataplexy but also EDS and more, that all, has to do with just not having the 'same common' interest in typical behavior and/or

You don't have cataplexy do you Zalika? If you did, you would have gone into rebound cataplexy from the withdrawal of the nicotine.

Why? Because nicotine suppresses REM.
