It's been a long time since I hit the floor (and anything in the way on the way down) with a cataplectic seizure. I guess with time comes better control over them. They did start with just a weakening of the knees and progressed. I try and grab something to hold on to 'cuz my arms go absolutely spastic. The one word I can garble out is "Down" and hope that someone understands what I'm trying to say. In a grocery store with your arms full of cans of tomatoes is not a good time to be joking around...freaks out other customers...and I had to buy all the cans I dented.
However, I love to laugh, make people laugh and adore a play on words...ya just gotta know that there are gonna be consequences.

Wearing a 'medical bracelet or necklace' which you can point towards, afterwards, can definitely help lessen the explaining to worriers...

LOL! Got it covered! Medic Alert bracelets and necklaces are too freakin' expensive. I have a "big red heart" dog tag on a chain around my neck...it says "Medic Alert" on one side and "Narcolepsy Cataplexy" on the other side. Cost 10 bucks so it doesn't break the bank if I lose it.
