i am new to this site but have found it reassuring that im not crazy or weird.. i have narcolepsy and cataplexy .. i still dont talk to people who dont have it.. but each step i take im closer to being able to live with it ..
i know that my mum struggles to cope when i upset myself about it.. i guess she feels that its out of her control.. i know my mum is totally there for me.. and although she cant make it go away or make it better..
havin HER around is my medication..your daughter sounds also like one of the lucky ones. keep her close..

Unfortunately I don't remember specific things about most of my life prior to two-three years ago... I get the little sleeps too, where I daze off but you can't tell im actually sleeping. I also lose track in the middle of conversations and often have to have people repeat themselves. I'm lucky enough to have been diagnosed before my wedding (next Aug). I was actually dreading how I would get through a WHOLE DAY of being awake and smiling for the cameras. With the medication now I"m not too too bad, but I"m hoping to be closer to"normal" by then. It's great that her husband and you are so patient with her. It can be stressful when you ask someone and they even look at you like "what the heck" (even if htey dont say it) or if it feels like you are putting them out of their way making them explain things again. My life is so much easier when Im around people who get how I am, and now it seems like they don't even notice my little wierd things b/c they are so used to me. I hope she finds something that helps enough she can remember more
