Who am I?
I have had Narcolepsy since I was 14 years old, but I did not get my diagnosis until the age of 21. I have lived without medical treatments and I manage my symptoms with various methods including mindfulness, CBT and lifestyle adjustments.
I have a BA degree in Psychology and AA diploma in Fashion Design. I am an ICF certified life coach, a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor and a practitioner of Dolores Cannon’s QHHT hypnosis.
I am currently training as an art therapist (MA Art therapy) and will continue with this blog once I have completed my training and have more time to write! 🙂

Why Narcolespy Life?
Narcolepsy Life is my attempt to bring information and awareness to the world about Narcolepsy and related topics.
Through my journey of coping with Narcolepsy, I have learned so much about myself and how Narcolepsy has contributed to my personal growth. I have done a lot of research online (read through clinical guides and articles found in the scientific journals/libraries) and talked to many people that have Narcolepsy.
Altogether, I have found that Narcolepsy is a complicated disorder, neurologically and psychologically. It is challenging to live with, it is difficult to explain, and for those that do not suffer from it, difficult to understand.
I have found a way that enables me to live a happy life with Narcolepsy, medicine free, and I hope to inspire people in finding their way of coping, with or without meds.
This blog is divided into three main themes:
- my own experiences of Narcolepsy, the symptoms, and how I cope without meds
- scientific knowledge and the newest research developments of Narcolepsy
- how I have made use of the power of vivid+lucid dreaming, that has been an essential element when living a Narcolepsy Life without medical treatments.
I hope you enjoy, learn something new or at least, be inspired!
