What Cataplexy Looks Like

Check out this sweet video of me having a cataplexy attack!

On the real though, it can be difficult to understand cataplexy if you’ve never seen it happen, so I am hoping that this video gives you a visual of what takes place during a typical cataplexy attack. As a reminder, I am fully conscious for the duration of this video — even when my eyes close and my head nods, I am NOT SLEEPING.

 I know it looks kind of funny, but please remember that narcolepsy is very difficult to live with, and if you are going to comment, please be kind.
