About this meeting
The living with Narcolepsy group is an open drop-in for adults affected by narcolepsy. The group offers weekly support based on participant needs as they arise while navigating life with Narcolepsy. Led by people directly affected by the condition, this is an ideal group to bring your current concerns and challenges to. While the focus is towards PWN, care-givers, parents and spouses are also warmly invited to participate within the peer to peer platform. This group is scheduled at a later hour for those on the West Coast.

About the host
Hey! My name is Lisa Rose and I've been diagnosed with Narcolepsy Type 2 (no cataplexy) since 2011 but I've been experiencing symptoms my whole life. Born and raised in California, I studied accounting at Santa Clara University and met my husband while working at one of the Big 4 accounting firms after graduation. I currently live in the Bay Area with my husband, son, and kitten Sugar who frequently likes to crash my video calls.

I arrived about 15 minutes late. The leader did not acnowledge my presence --and neither did anyone else. Very rude
