The inability to sleep, because of the excessive sleepiness. Having insomnia along with the narcolepsy, was a total surprise.
ok so I didn't have real insomnia I just didn't sleep. The longest I went was two weeks. Then I got horribly sick and almost died from pneumonia. Here's what helped me. Take 15 minutes a day and meditate. Get comfortable, not in the poses, just for sleep. Close your eyes. Tell your eyes to relax. Then your arms. Then your legs. Then tell your mind we are going on a trip. Then think of all the things you like to do and walk through each memory all the time telling yourself it's ok to relax. It takes time but I'm usually asleep in 5 minutes the most I skip sleep awake but if I consistently do it the pattern fades. I only sleep about 3-5 hours consistently. I don't dwell on tomorrow. I start by walking down a path. Then I fly and release each thing that bothers me. When I was younger the thoughts were more provocative. Anyway I hope it helps.
I didn't know that me laughing would make me collapse the way l do. And the insomnia is driving me crazy.
