In the run-up to World Narcolepsy Day 2020, Narcolepsy UK invited people with narcolepsy and their families to contribute their stories of what it's like to live with narcolepsy or with a person with narcolepsy.

Thank you to all those brave enough to share your experiences. Some of the stories make for hard reading and some are uplifting, but we hope that together they capture the spectrum nature of this disorder.
