How do you explain it to other people?


I'm finding most people (including myself before I started researching Narcolepsy) don't have any idea of what Idiopathic Hypersomnia is.

Ask them if they ever stayed up all night and then all of the next day.  Then say, how you feel right before you go to bed that night, that's how I feel all the time.  That usually does the trick for me.
