#NarcolepsyStories

Resource article

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.

#NarcolepsyStories: Liam Gordon

Blog post
11 September 2020

When walking home after a full day at university, I began to notice my knees buckle for a split second and there was nothing I could do. In that moment, it felt as if my whole body was about to give way; then the next thing I knew I was completely fine. I had just started my fourth year studying chemical and process engineering, the workload was high and beginning to get the better of me. At home, I might try to watch a film, but would be overwhelmed by a need to sleep and be unconscious within the first five minutes.
