Thank you Westerg3. I have to be more aware. I think I can get through it and the next thing I know, I am asleep. This is especially true if I am on the phone with a friend who is a chatterbox. If I can be active and talk, I can stay awake. Constant listening puts me to sleep. The same happened in high school and college. I chewed a lot of gum to stay awake. I don't like to chew gum at home. I have not told anyone outside of my immediate family about the narcolepsy. I have told friends I have a sleep disorder. I wish I could relax on the couch when talking on the phone sometimes, but I guess I'll have to stick to activity as you have suggested. Thank you.
