|Cheer up Molly. I read your post. I am currently a Physician Assistant and I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy 2months ago. I had aparently been suffering from it all my life and didn't have the diagnosis. it got worse for me when I started my career. I do surgery and ER work and work about 60+hrs a week. I noticed the sleep attacks were becoming increasingly frequent even after a full night's resta nd occurring in the middle of Surgery and ER work. imagine that, even in those high stress situations. i have been in 2 car accidents already because of it and I can't tell you the number of near misses I have had. Well thankfully I have my life and seeked treatment and currently started taking Nuvigil which has helped very well. 5hr energy has been doing the trick pretty well for me too. I essentially slept through most of my classes in PA school but studied at night. i probably would've performed better If I didn't have this sickness but I did graduate and pass my boards and have been practicing for the last 2years. i am basically writing to you because ur post reached out to me and I wanted to send you some encouragement and show you that it is possible to still attain your goals and dreams even if nobody understands what you are going through. Don't be discouraged, prayer determination and hard work goes a long way. Keep pressing on and feel free tosend me a message if you have any questions. Good Luck and wish u the best:)
